FLAVOR RETURNS THURSDAY, DEC.6. DISCOUNTED $30 TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE!

Canton singer Me'na survived brain surgery and rediscovered her love of music, working in musical theater before recording her debut, Living My Life. Over an elastic, R&B funk riff on the title track, Me'na sings of her trials and inspirational rebirth. She collaborated with producer Nathaniel Rhodes on 7 of the 12 tracks, mostly soul- and blues-inflected originals with a cool cabaret vibe. She also lends her versatile vocals to excellent renditions of old standards "Summertime" and "My Funny Valentine." The album highlight is the sassy, infectious "P.I.A. (Plan in Action)," in which Me'na proclaims, "Most of my adult life, I've dealt with some funny-ass ways." You go, girl!
