Fannie May Goosby - Grievous Blues

Fannie May Goosby (born 1902, died sometime around 1934) also known as Fannie Mae Goosby. She was an American classic female blues singer, pianist and songwriter. Most of her recordings were released between 1923 and 1928, one of which was possibly her most well known , ‘Grievous Blues’. She was one of the first female blues musicians to record her own songs. Apparently, this was quite unusual at the time. She also was one of the first two blues singers to be recorded in the Deep South, the other being the dirty blues singer Lucille Bogan. Sadly, details of her personal life outside the recording studio are sketchy, what is known is questionable.
