Whether she's seducing you with 'Peel Me A Grape' or declaring her autonomy in the title cut, this is her show…one of the year's best jazz vocal albums." - DownBeat Magazine

In I Wanna Be Evil, singer, actress, and writer René Marie pays a fiery, sensual, and clever tribute to the inimitable Eartha Kitt. Be prepared to be blown away by Marie's incredible range of vocal abilities and powerful emotional resonance, as she performs tracks from the new album. Marie shares her inspiration for the project: "Eartha Kitt is one of America's strongest iconic figures. She was an inspiring artist, a strong woman, and an essential activist in different ways. She was homeless when she first moved to New York City, yet became a star. She was a sensual and powerful woman in a man's world at a time when most women were background, not front and center. She was a black actress in Hollywood at a time when most black actors were given subservient roles, yet here she was – Catwoman. She challenged President Johnson on the Vietnam War and paid a price for her outspokenness. She unabashedly shared her sensual self and her fierce self and was just herself – simply Eartha. That alone, I have learned, can be the most radical act, especially if you are a woman. As Eartha states in one of her famous 'Kittisms:' 'The price you pay for being yourself is worth it.",
