You may have noticed a similarity in the name of this artist. To answer the obvious question right away, no, it's not me! It is because of the similarity in our names, though, that this woman came to my attention. Allow me to indulge myself.

Some of you may know that I am a singer/songwriter, bassist. A fan of mine was searching on the internet to find out where and when I was playing when they came across "Miss Marcy's" name. The next time this fan of mine came to see me, he asked if I had been playing in Texas. This question sent me to the internet to find out who "Miss Marcy" was. I contacted her via email and we've been in touch ever since. When I got word, via email, that she was releasing her second CD, I asked her to send one to me.

Miss Marcy (Rodsky) penned all of the seven cuts on this CD, two of which were co-written by Dave Burris, who also plays guitar. From the beginning of this disc, you know you'll be listening to pure blues. Even without a drawl, Miss Rodsky's voice has a Texas quality that seasons this recording just right!

Cut one, “Stand By Your Man,” co-written by Burris, is nothing like its more well-known namesake. It's raw blues! It's embellished with some fine blues harmonica playing by New England blues legend, Cheryl Arena.

Track two, “OC Blues,” comes in swinging, then track three, “You Got My Man,” drops into the lowdown lament of a lover scorned. The fourth cut, “Move On,” begins with Miss Marcy playing the piano and singing. The acoustics are primitive in the first verse. Then, as the second verse kicks in, the band does, too! I like the way she ends this song the way it began, with just the piano playing acoustically, then the sound of high heels walking away and the door slamming!

Cut five, “One More Man,” slips sweetly into a country-blues ballad co-penned again with Burris. Then, in cut six, she struts into a Texas country-blues groove in “Restraining Order.”

This disc is capped off with her up-tempo signature tune, “Sugar Daddy.” It's set aside from previous tunes with a snappy, jazzy intro complete with guitar strumming, stops and horns punctuating Miss Marcy's vocals. The lyrics are sassy..."Yes, my love is true, as long as my checks be comin' through! Ya know I'll call ya, sugar daddy."

With the longest song on this recording being 3:57 minutes and only seven cuts, my biggest complaint about this CD is that it isn't long enough.

Dallas Observer 2013 Winner "Best of" Blues - October 31, 2013

The blues sound of Miss Marcy and her Texas SugarDaddys is unconventional. It swings a little harder and faster than does the work of some of her contemporaries in the genre. She's an energetic performer, capable of commanding a loud bar filled with strangers and a quiet theater of fans with equal shimmering confidence. KM

The 10 Greatest Dallas Blues Artists - June 19, 2013

3. Miss Marcy
In a musical genre dominated too often by men, Miss Marcy is at the forefront of the Dallas blues scene, wowing blues aficionados with a voice that sounds one part angelic/two parts devilish, which nearly caused this listener's heart to stop as I fell into her words. Graduating from the University of North Texas in 2001, Miss Marcy has spent the last decade playing club gigs, festivals and private parties across the Dallas/Fort Worth area. In 2010, she released her first album Miss Marcy and the Texas SugarDaddy's. Harnessing blues divas like Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey and Big Mama Thorton, Miss Marcy is living proof that the blues are timeless.

Brooklyn Jazz Café Honors Legendary Etta James - January 27, 2011

On the evening of January 25, 2011, Dallas’ best jazz and blues artists united at the Brooklyn Jazz Café to honor legendary singer Ms. Etta James, on her 73rd birthday.  

The Dallas lineup included an appearance by Grammy nominated blues artist Mr. Lucky Peterson (multi-instrumentalist), Grammy nominated Ms. Breggett Rideau (vocalist), Martha Burks (vocalist), Candy Williams (vocalist), Liz Mikel (vocalist), Rob Holbert (saxophonist), Eric Willis (composer and keyboardist), Derrick ‘Domino’ Winding (guitarist), Andrea Dawson (vocalist), Naida and Nelda Washington (vocalists) and many more. 

Etta James was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2009, and has been suffering from dementia. However, it was also just recently confirmed that Etta James is severely ill with leukemia.

Etta James (born Jamesetta Hawkins) is best known for her success as a blues and R&B singer. However, she also sings rock, gospel, and jazz. James has won four Grammys and seventeen Blues Music Awards during her music career.  She was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, the Blues Hall of Fame in 2001, and the Grammy Hall of Fame in both 1999 and 2008. James is most commonly known for her signature songs “At Last” and “Trust in Me”, which were hits recorded in 1961 with Chess Records.   

The idea of honoring Ms. Etta James on her birthday, originated from Jazz vocalist Ms. Loretta Dunaway. Ms. Breggett Rideau produced the event, and teamed up with music composer and keyboardist Mr. Norman Williams, who wrote the music charts, and served as the music director.  Brooklyn Jazz Café owner Mrs. Lorna Tate supported these artists with no hesitation and hosted this local tribute, which she said “brought me to tears”.

 The evening started with a stellar performance by jazz vocalist Ms. Martha Burks. Her powerful vocal range and playful finesse was given a standing ovation after performing Etta’s famous song ‘At Last’.  Ms. Liz Mikel beautifully sang James’ second 1961 hit song, ‘Trust in Me’ and Ms. Candy Williams the classic jazz standard, ‘Sunday Kind of Love’.  

Upcoming jazz vocalist Ms. Nelda Washington, shimmed her hips and rocked the audience with a touch of jazz, when she performed the blues hit, ‘Hoochie Coochie Man’.  Then, blues singer Ms. Andrea Dawson captured the audience’s undivided attention, when she illustrated the emotional lyrics from the song ‘I’d Rather Go Blind’. Dawson walked off the stage and down the aisles singing to the audience, “I’d rather go blind boy. Then to see you walk away, see you walk from me, yeah…” giving us a memorable performance.  Another, evening highlight was when Mr. Lucky Peterson stopped the band to rejoined the stage, and took the guitar from player (Derrick ‘Domino’ Winding), and lead the band playing the blues hit ‘Confessin The Blues’  featuring Miss Marcy on vocals.  Mr. Peterson has performed and recorded with Ms. Etta James and many other famous artists all over the world for years. Peterson’s talented performance and rare appearance made this an unforgettable event.

 The legendary Etta James and her family are in our prayers here in Dallas. We will honor her always…

Standy By Your Man - December 8, 2009

A song I wrote about an old bass player of mine who is real young and good looking. Sometimes his women would all show up on the same gig and fight to see who got to take him home. I would just think... for a couch and a car, you can have him too. If you don't give him what he wants, the other will... You better stan...d by your man or another woman will come along who can, stand by your man.

Dallas Observer - Best of 2009 - September 24, 2009

Best Blues Club
Pearl at Commerce
2038 Commerce St.
214-655-8824 Here's the deal, Dallas: Considering how important a role the blues played in our city's musical history (y'know, "Deep Ellum Blues," and all that), it's really a goddamn shame how there aren't all that many clubs—well, many clubs worth mentioning, at least—that offer up the genre on a regular basis. Last we heard, there's one coming back to Deep Ellum, thank you very much, in the spot behind the Twisted Root, right where the Red Blood Club used to be. But for the time being, may we recommend the Pearl for your misery-loves-company ways? Located on the east edge of downtown, it's close to our city's historical blues home in Deep Ellum, and with touring and local blues performers coming in on a regular basis—including a Monday happy hour residency from Miss Marcy and her Texas Sugar Daddies—along with a slew of jazz and folk artists, it's the only place we can look you straight in the eye and offer up as a cure for your Lack of Deep Ellum blues blues.

Notice from Zander's House to their private client listing - August 28, 2009

If you haven’t heard Miss Marcy’s sultry vocals, you’re in for a real treat. Marcy is one heck of an entertainer and for these two engagements she'll bring her full Sugar Daddy band to spice things up. She puts so much energy into her performance that we may go "lights out" as she lights up the stage. Her brand of smokin blues will make you smile, just like our great selection of Vietnamese dishes and Happy Hour prices. Don't Miss IT!

Miss Marcy & her Texas SugarDaddy's at Pearl - April 9, 2009

University of North Texas grad Miss Marcy is a self-proclaimed "bar singer," which means her jazz/blues music goes great with whiskey and a smoky, darkly-lit watering hole. Well, the smoky part might not be realistic right now, but thank God the whiskey still is, and Miss Marcy's great songs like "Sugar Daddy" and "You Got My Man" make us want to go listen to her live, right now. Do it every Monday night in April at the Pearl and step back into another era. 6:30–8pm. Pearl, 2038 Commerce St. 214-655-8824.

What To Do Mondays in 2009 - January 4, 2009

So I get to the gig at Pearl on Monday and it turns out that we were in the Dallas Morning News Guide Section

everything with a caption that read What To Do On Mondays. Oh, they
didn't mean that I was what to do on Mondays! Just that my band
'Miss Marcy & her Texas SugarDaddy's' every Monday at Pearl is What
To Do on Mondays!!

Miss Marcy & her Texas SugarDaddy's

I'd love a copy for my mom. She doesn't believe that I'm spending
all my time in bars for music.
