Rhonda Thomas

When: Sat., Dec. 5, 8 & 10 p.m. 2015

Rhonda Thomas, a former background singer for the late Isaac Hayes, occupies part of the same adult-contemporary R&B space that solid-yet-unheralded vocalists like Maysa, Avery Sunshine and Ledisi have found over the years. But on Thomas’ fifth and most recent album, Vinyl Daze, the Atlanta-based vocalist throws out convention for experimentation. She harmonizes over 4hero-esque soundscapes, sings in Portuguese and stretches out her musical purview by collaborating with Daz-I-Kue of the U.K. production collective Bugz in the Attic. The change has given her sound the right amount of lift to get you out of your seat for a dance or two. —Eric Tullis
