Award winning NW duo team up to produce all new electric CD with "outstanding" (Bill Wax, XM Radio) results.
LynnAnn Hyde has been honored with prestigious artist endorsement from Hohner Harmonicas and Baldoni Accordions, and this CD features seven of her original songs. Stu Kinzel is award winning guitarist and vocalist, and contributes five of his adaptations of Blues Classics with gusto.
CD features the incomparable LILY WILDE on two vocal cuts, and the sultry-smooth vocals of MEGAN JAMES on Hyde's 2002 "BEST SONG" (PMS) award winner "The Northern Town". Beautiful mandolin and Cajun Accordion are featured on two Gulf Coast tribute songs, and Kinzel presents a solo effort on National Steel Guitar that is evocative of Muddy Waters at his best, providing excellent contrast to the full band setting. Production values are top-notch, and the CD has a pure and uncluttered sound.
"Blistering guitar work and vocals from Kinzel raise the hairs on the back of your neck, and Hyde will leave you breathless with her command of harmonica"...(The Review Chick)
Kinzel has been referred to as "the absolute best Slide Guitarist going...with tone other players can only dream of" (Susan Stewart, The Blues Notes) and Hyde has been described as a "tiny harmonica "ACE", proving a woman can play harp" (The Blue Zone).
This CD has been named to countless "TOP 20 Blues Release" lists 2002 by radio programmers all over the world. Three cuts are featured on XM and DMX satellite radio.
This band plays all over the W Coast, but focus is Oregon & WA.
