Lisa Mann a West Virginia Native-turned-Portlander embodies the aspirational trifecta of the total blues musician: power vocalist, bassist extraordinaire, and deft songwriter. The release completes Mann’s transformation from 2015 BMA Instrumentalist Award winner, and Northwest regional stalwart to a national voice, and an untethered voice, at that.

Ben Rice's music is deeply rooted in traditional blues, yet at the same time fiercely original. His guitar playing earns labels like "fearless," "inventive" and "powerful," and he routinely brings audiences to their feet with his stunning and emotionally honest vocal delivery. Ben is as much home fronting his electric blues band as he is captivating a crowd solo with nothing but his voice and his resonator guitar.

Karen Lovely shot onto the blues scene out of  the Pacific Northwest like Stack O' Lee's .44 placing 2ndat the 2010 International Blues Challengefollowed by three 2011 Blues Music Award Nominations for BEST CONTEMPORARY BLUES FEMALE ARTIST, BEST CONTEMPORARY BLUES ALBUM and BEST SONG for her sophomore release STILL THE RAIN.

Known for her passionate, driven performances, this powerhouse vocalist delivers a blistering mix of contemporary & old school blues. Lovely's standout performances have garnered awards and critical acclaim at festivals and venues throughout the US, Canada and Europe.
