I have always loved the blues as far back as I can remember, or at least as far back as being a young girl and listening to some of the greats: BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and then later on Joe Bonamassa, Gary Moore &Eric Clapton, to name a few. There were very few female influences for me in this genre of music other than the odd Etta James song or a little Nina Simone & Janice Joplin.
Recently I was introduced to a lady with an amazing voice, check her out on You Tube, her name is Beth Hart & the song...'Am I the one.' The conviction in Beth's voice and her connection with the music leaves me in a trance every time.
My mission, to sing this in our new five piece band and do it justice!
