Ghostlight Records presents the innovative new album from Lea DeLaria, House of David: delaria + bowie = jazz, which boldly reexamines the work of music icon David Bowie. 

DeLaria is the television, stage and music star currently best known as “Carrie ‘Big Boo’ Black” in the hit Netflix series “Orange is the New Black.” The first major jazz reworking on Bowie’s beloved catalog, the album features tracks such as a smooth bossa nova interpretation of “Golden Years,” a trenchant “Life On Mars” and a roof-raising gospel take on “Modern Love.” 

“Bowie is not only a god of rock and arbitrator of style, but he’s THE defining singer songwriter of the latter part of the 20th century,” according to Lea. “From ‘Suffragette City’ to Labyrinth through Ziggy Stardust and The Hunger, his bold career choices and mind blowing artistic technique flies in the face of convention. He is quite simply a legend. David’s music lends itself perfectly to the language of Jazz. I hope he sees this album as the tribute to his genius that I mean it to be. LONG LIVE DAVID BOWIE.”

Lea DeLaria boasts a  multi-faceted career as a comedian, actress and jazz musician. She holds the distinction of being the first openly gay comic on television in America which led to countless television and film roles portraying Police Lieutenants, PE Teachers and the Lesbian who inappropriately hits on straight women.  Selected TV credits include “Awkward,” “Clarence,” “Californication,” “The Oblongs,” “One Live to Live,” “Law and Order: SVU,” “Will and Grace,” “Friends” and “Matlock.”  Selected film credits include: The First Wives Club, Dear Dumb Diary and Edge of Seventeen.

She’s received Obie and Theater World Awards, and a Drama Desk nomination for her portrayal as ‘Hildy’ in the Public Theatre’s revival of On The Town, an Ovation nomination for The Boys From Syracuse, and has played both Eddie and Dr. Scott in the gender-bending Broadway musical The Rocky Horror Show. Lea was the featured vocalist at the 50th Anniversary of the Newport Jazz Festival, and has performed in some of the most prestigious houses in the world including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Chicago Symphony, Hollywood Bowl, The Royal Albert Hall and the Sydney Opera House. Lea has five records on the Warner Jazz and Classics label and her book Lea’s Book of Rules for the World is in its third printing at Bantam Doubleday and Dell.
