Album Notes
A Little About Lara

With her operatic training, and love of the blues, Lara was born to perform. She has come a long way in a short time, earning loyal fans nationwide. After an impressive showcase at the Los Angeles NAMM Show 2003, Lara embarked on an ambitious tour playing from California to Maine to promote her second album entitled "Faces of the Blues," (released June 2002 at the Monterey Blues Festival; a unique honor for any local musician). The album is currently getting airplay in several countries around the world.

Lara and her band have shared the bill with headliners Etta James, Little Richard, James Brown, Bobby Blue Bland and many more; Lara also lent her talent to sing back-up with Triple Seven at the Fillmore in San Francisco, opening up for the pop band Smashmouth.

Lara fronts and leads 2 bands. Velvet Plum, a popular bay area cover band that lends talent from San Jose's finest musicians, and the Lara Price band, a soulful rockin' blues band. It was with the Lara Price band that she performed at the 14th world-renowned Annual San Jose Jazz Festival 2003.

It's no wonder her music transcends the blues and crosses the line into music that is unequivocally superb. Her musical journey started at the young age of 6, taking piano lessons with Legendary 80's music innovator Howard Jones. At 12 she was singing solo and went on to take operatic voice lessons at Boise State University. She arrived in the Bay Area in 1998 in search for her dreams of singing in a band. Lara began running her own blues jam at JJ's Blues, and was featured in an inspiring article about blues jams in September 2000 issue of the Blues Revue. Lara fell in love with the blues without expecting to, "I didn't find the blues, the blues found me".
Currently Lara looks forward to promoting her 4th CD, entitled "I Got News" with song writting partner and lead guitar player Laura Chavwez, released this year, and a Tour in China.
She's an All American singer with a sultry stage presence and a voice that demands you're attention-smoky, lonely, sexy, and powerful. It's all about the love of music and letting the crown share in her passion.

What they say about the duo...

"Lara can belt out a song, purr through a ballad, knock you out with her sensuality and make you want to get up and dance." (Richard Kamins,Hartford Courant)

".. the proof is in the performance. Price's vocal instrument is as strong as it is sensual, confident in covering the breadth of material in her songbook." (Jeff Kaliss San Francisco Chronicle)

"Laura Chavez plays the blues with such age defying tact, knowledge and finesse it's almost scary. And she is unassuming and shy off stage and on. You look at her and you can't believe these glorious sounds are coming from her fingers. She'd be worth the price of admission alone." (Brad Kava, San Jose Mercury News)

"Lara Price Band with 22year old phenom Laura Chavez on guitar; they sound, amazingly, like Janis Joplin backed by Albert Collins. I hope they don't end up on the "Best Bands That Never Made It" list." (Brad Kava, San Jose Mercury News)

Lara and Laura have currently been entertaining fans with a full band (The Lara Price Band) racking up great reviews from Connecticut to San Francisco. To add a different flavor to their already vast repertoire, the female duo take an acoustic adventure covering a range of songs by Etta James, Radio Head and their own creations. In a short time the 2 created a must see bluesy, rockin', sultry night of great music.

Blew me away!!!!!!
I heard of the Lara Price Band from Sue Foley's "Blues Guitar Women (great double disc) and decided to just order this album. This disc is worth the price alone for tracks 2 & 8, but really the whole thing is great. Between Lara's vocals and Laura's guitar work, I was really impressed. Definitely a band I'd wanna see live.

Great surprise
I am blues lover and since I first heard the Lara Price Band in a compilation CD I wanted to explore and listen to more songs, especially for the guitar parts performed by Laura Chavez, this is a very good CD; I transfered 5 songs to my iPod that I allways listen.
This group is just at their beginnings and a great future is comming up for them, they got what make a great band, talent and drive to perform. I am waiting for the next release and I will get it as soon as it comes out.

Tim Radel

The best female Blues singer and best female Blues guitarest in the country.
Lara Price has the perfect voice and stage presence to be the best Blues singer ever. Her songwriting with Laura Chavez really brings the listener into the song. Laura Chavez is absolutely the best female guitarist in the country and is on the same level with Bonamassa and Stevie Ray. She plays cover songs better than the original, and with Lara's vocals, it goes beyond awesome. This is the very best Blues CD on the market. Everyone needs to add this CD to their collection.

Great voice, awesome guitar and good sound too.


This is probably one of the best that I have heard in a long time!!!!! Lara Price can really sing. And man, can Laura Chavez chop that axe.
Definitely recommended!!!!!!!

Would Love to See Them Live!
A very tight group with a solid guitar and Lara,s strong vocals. This rockin blues CD has been enjoyed by all who I play it for. A true hidden CD Baby gem!

Paul Fisher

This is a dynamite CD by one of the top female blues artists anywhere. And her guitarist on this CD, Laura Chavez (I was sorry to see them part), is the best female blues or rock guitarist I've ever heard and I've heard all of any note. I can't fathom why Lara hasn't broken into the "big time" in the sense of having her CDs in music stores, although I certainly do appreciate CD baby for marketing them. Lara has a fine voice and feel for and sense of the blues - and I've been listening to the blues since I first discovered them as a teenager in the 60s via Paul Butterfield, John Mayall and Eric Clapton.


I didn't know Lara price Band before listening to the compilation from ruff records "blues guitar women".
This band should be touring all over the world and be as famous as buddy guy!!!
So much musicality in a genre which is "banal" is very rare:Laura Chavez delivers a rare emotion playing the guitar.Not only a virtuoso but also a musician who has a lot to share.
Simply stellar.


buy this cd if no other
If you are here for blues this is the cd to own. It is most exellent.

Bjorn, Sweden

This was good News!
It is not very often you get new excellent blues in your hand. Three stars for the CD but at least one extra star to Laura Chavez for the heavy guitar sound. I love it! I havn't heard that sound since ZZ Top and Blue Jeans Blues.
