"I learned that I am capable" says Roberta Lea. With the exception of "Papa Was a Rolling Stone" a Temptations cover, she wrote every song on her debut album and served as an executive producer. Lea chisels Too Much of a Woman with her own singular perspective — that of a Black woman from Virginia who is unafraid of carrying both strength and vulnerability. She takes up space, and she's unafraid of calling herself a legend.
