She's a singer-songwriter hailing from Atlanta, Georgia. Her resume is long and her talents are endless. Algebra Blessett graced the stage at Motorco in Durham, North Carolina on Sunday night, July 27, 2014, opening for Eric Roberson's The Box Tour. Durham fans are raving about her performance and her style.
Blessett has performed as a background singer for vocalists like Monica and Bilal, and she's toured with Charlotte native, Anthony Hamilton. Blessett has performed in and around Atlanta since she was young, and began to take her music prowess seriously when she was in eighth grade according to an interview conducted with Examiner on Friday, July 25, 2014 (published on Tuesday July 29, 2014).
Blessett writes her own music and released her first album "Purpose" in 2008. That album, according to Blessett, was a compilation of all the songs she'd ever written. Going into her second album, "Recovery", Blessett says she took a more strategic approach.

In the exclusive interview with Examiner before her Charlotte performance at Amos' South End, which accompanies this article, Blessett describes the transitions that have taken place in her life that are reflective in her music, her love and her style.
I'm a walking experience. I'm a work in progress...I've gone from my mom's little girl to my mom's little woman.-Blessett
When speaking about "Recovery", Blessett describes how the song "Nobody But You" is about the love you feel for everyone in your life, not just romantic partners.
The single "Nobody But You"...a lot of people think that song's about me being head over heels in love with this guy. It was a lot of experiences when that song came about. It's about the guy that I was dating at the time, but it's also about my nephews and my nieces. I'd never been an aunt before until a few years ago. So I got to the point where I didn't want to do anything but be with them. Nothing in the world mattered.
Blessett spoke of how the song "Danger Zone" taps into the vulnerability of meeting someone with potential. You don't know if it could be something great or "he could be crazy". "Recovery" takes you through the changes that comes with maturing into womanhood, maturing in life, and maturing in love.
"Recovery" explores the impact of regenerating and being open to the possibilities of something new. Blessett converses with Examiner in a transparent manner about life's changes and challenges, as well as the fear and depths that come with loving someone.
