The year 2016 was one of unexpected change for Tampa Bay area blues and soul vocalist Lauren Mitchell. Her romantic and professional life was in turmoil, with the dissolution of a marriage and a parting of ways with her band. Through a bold mix of her own original material and covers of tunes performed by Etta James, Bettye Lavette, Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin and Betty Davis, Mitchell tells a blues story on "Desire" that's been a lifetime in the making. It's a stylistically varied set of 13 songs recorded by Grammy-winning producer Tony Braunagel. Besides Braunagel, the band features guitarists Johnny Lee Schell, Josh Sklair and Jose Ramirez, keyboardist Jim Pugh, bassist Reggie McBride, sax player Joe Sublett, trumpet player Darrell Leonard, and percussionist Lenny Castro.
