Singer Ledisi wanted to make a few bold artistic changes this time out. But just before she started work on her sophomore release, Turn Me Loose, she hit a wall. The singer-songwriter had a bad case of writer's block that stretched for six months. Ledisi was petrified as she tried to figure out how to follow up her debut, Lost & Found. The album garnered strong reviews and two Grammy nominations.
