Original Blues/rock. The blues is in the style of classic blues artists such as Magic Sam and Otis Rush. The rock has a hard driving 60's vibe. (

Album Notes

Kara Maguire is a 30 year old blues and rock singer. She has always been a fan of classic female blues singers such as Etta James, Koko Taylor and Bonnie Raitt. But her influences are more varied and she has been influenced by female singers of the 60's such as Carole King and Carly Simon. Kara is from the east coast and in fact her father is a well known Philadelphia poet. She came out to Los Angeles to sing rock and tore up the Hollywood club scene doing her own original music (she recently had a few songs picked up by television). But she always dreamed of fronting a hard driving blues/rock band and recently joined up with Jerry Rosen who hooked her up with some of Southern California's top blues players.

Recently she has discovered classic Chicago blues artists Magic Sam and Otis Riush and she is now covering some of their material as well as incorporating that vibe into her original music. The two guitarists in the band are Tom Harkenrider and Jerry Rosen. Tom, who is in his 30's, was a city planner when he got drafted into James Harmon's band and Tom toured with Harmon for many years. After finishing with Harmon, he joined Candye Kane's road band and spent several years with Candye. Tom is a first call guitarist for Blues, Rockabilly and jazz in Southern California. Tom also produced the CD. Jerry is a blues lifer. He grew up listening to BB and Albert King and was profoundly influenced by them after seeing them live at the Fillmore East. He has played blues in the LA area for 15 years and use to own a blues label called Southside Records. He was also the guitarist in the Mary Dukes band and produced, played guitar on and wrote the songs for Mary's CD. The Mary band toured nationally and played some large festivals. Jerry is excited about helping to launch Kara's music career and released her CD on his new label - Albatross Recordings. The rhythm section on the CD - Tyler Pederson and Paul Fasulo are two of the busiest guys in blues. Tyler was William Clarke's bassist for many years and Paul recently toured with Rod Piazza. JT Ross has a highly acclaimed CD on Southside Records and fronts one of LA's top blues bands. There is no better harp player in LA and his work on Kara's CD truly elevates the tracks he is on.

We are not a blues band or a rock band. We do both and we are influenced by both the blues and rock of the 60's. In our set, we mix both styles and we are comfortable going back and forth between the two. In the 60's blues and rock were mixed together and it helped both genres. But we like to think, that when we play blues, we are doing the real thing. We rely on solid vocals, good songs and music that is driven more by passion than volume; but we do get down.
