This Chicago-based group brings their combined experience and the use of two basses to the stage to wow audiences with their unique, funky approach to the blues. They were selected to go to Memphis in 2018 to compete in the International Blues Challenge (IBC). Their CD, "It's About Time," showcases all originals, nine of which were written by bandleader Susan Williams, and two by Mike Gallemore, the guitarist on the CD. It was selected in 2019 to compete in the "Best Self-Produced CD" category of the IBC.
Susan Williams, lead singer and bassist, hails from Chicago, and has been playing and singing professionally for over 30 years. Her powerful voice is reminiscent of Bonnie Raitt, with a tinge of Janis Joplin, and has been described as "rich and smoky, with perfect raspiness."
Chicago native, Darryl Wright, the second bassist in the band, has toured the world with Mavis Staples, among others, and brings his incredible ability to this group in the form of masterful ensemble playing and amazing bass solos.
Rob Davis is a seasoned session and touring drummer who's been a part of the Chicago music scene for over twenty years.
