Fannie May Goosby Blues Biography

Fannie May Goosby (born 1902, died after 1934) also known as Goosby was an American classic female blues singer, pianist and songwriter.

Fannie May Goosby career

Goosby was one of the first two blues singers (the other was Lucille Bogan) to be recorded in the Deep South. Although the 1923 Atlanta session for OKeh Records, arranged by Polk Brockman and supervised by Ralph Peer, is best known for launching the career of hillbilly artist Fiddlin’ John Carson, the discovery of Goosby and Bogan was an equally worthy outcome.” Goosby cut eleven sides at sessions in 1923 and 1928.
