Biography

Nona Hendryx (born October 9, 1944 in Trenton, New Jersey) is an American vocalist, record producer, songwriter, musician, author, and actress. Many articles mistakenly give her first name as Wynona, which her manager, Vicki Wickham, has verified to be incorrect. Hendryx is known for her work as a solo artist as well as for being one-third of the trio Labelle, who had a hit with “Lady Marmalade.” Her music has ranged from soul, funk, dance, and rhythm and blues to hard rock, art rock, and World Music.

N O N A H E N D R Y X: from Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles (the sweethearts of The Apollo), inducted into The Rhythm & Blues Foundations’ Hall of Fame in l999, to the ground breaking glam funk band of the 70s, Labelle (with Patti LaBelle and Sarah Dash) to a stunning solo career, Nona Hendryx has always been on the cutting edge of music. Her songs are edgy, provocative, political and full of double entendres and empowering messages which enabled the trio to break the traditional girl group mold. Their stage show was the forerunner of the epic productions we expect today and they were the only contemporary black group to take their ‘Wear Something Silver’ show to NY’s prestigious Metropolitan Opera House and to major theatres and Opera Houses across the world. Labelle racked up three gold albums and a No. l world wide hit with “Lady Marmalade (Voulez Vous Coucher Avec Moi Ce Soir?)” Her solo efforts have been equally challenging.

    @studman69: You can buy it from Amazon. The British label T-Bird reissued it on CD in 2010.
