ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"A BELTER OF THE BLUES", is how "PHILA. INQUIRER MAGAZINE" featured SISTER BLUE in a 1998 feature of "LOCAL ANGLE". That same year "NORTHEAST TIMES" described her as a singer whose..."soul fights its way out and fills the room with well-seasoned wisdom and joy", and "strums her guitar with a trance-like fervor". In 1999, "CHESTNUT HILL LOCAL" exclaimed, "she bellows, belabors, and blasts the blues as if it's exploding from a howitzer. There are no pretty bows on her songs, just a barbed wire of passion hot enough to burn up the furniture in the room.

A Philly native, Sister Blue fronts a driving blues band, with powerful vocals and stinging guitar leads. For variety, Sister Blue also leads an acoustic duo, playing blues and ragtime, including renditions of her favorite Bessie Smith songs, as well as compostions of her own.

"...she growls in a low-down Janis Joplinish voice and coaxes from a guitar that bellies up to her like a dog who knows who's in charge."
-Janet Falon, "Inquirer Magazine"

"When Sister Blue's got the blues-it's all good."
-Sunshine Warbock, "Northeast Times"

"When she sings (growls actually) and hammers her guitar, she gives you the whole steak, and it's all meat; no fat, no bones."
- Len Lear, "Chestnut Hill Local"

"No one including Mick Jagger in Tina Turner's body, can move onstage like Sister Blue. It's one of those "you have to see it to believe it deals."
-Jim Albert "Northeast Times"

"This lady sings the blues!!!"
-Sydney's Sidestreet

The long awaited CD Red, White, & Sister Blue is here, featuring 8 original tracks, including Chicago-style band blues, soulful cuts, and acoustic blues & ragtime. Get your copy now!

Philly girl can play with the men just fine!
For her first effort, Philadelphia native and local blues verteran "Sister Blue" proves that girls can play the blues everybit as well as the men. What is immdediately noticable about this CD is the simplicity and purity of the music. Where so many bands have gone with heavy production and horn sections, Sister Blue is playing it just the way you will hear it live. Her voice is clean, strong and the lyrics are delivered with a feeling that she has lived all of what she sings about. The arrangements have a delta influence and it's clear this Philly girl has done her homework. Sister Blue also throws in a couple acoustic numbers; demonstrating that what it really all boils down to is a girl and her guitar singing about her hopes, dreams and her pains.

And as you listen to this CD, you can't help but feel good in the knowledge that the future of blues is secure in the hands of musicians like Sister Blue.

Really enjoying this CD. Great sounds.
I can't believe how much passion comes out in this music. Love the lyrics and the bluesiness. Haven't heard anything this good from an unheralded artist in decades.

This Sister's Got The Blues
There is nothing subtle here. We're talking blues, blues, and more blues.
The result is a smooth but emotional wail that walks the line between self-parody and soul searching.
She does both well-having fun with the genre while never denying the depths of the desolation that evoked it in the first place. This is how she gets away with lines like "If you go messin' with my mind/ I'm gonna whoop your behind from If You Go Messin' With My Mind.
The original songs are fun and rocking, and played with relish.
Red, White, & Sister Blue is, on it's own merits, a remarkably listenable album" ..."a passionate slab of heartfelt and fun blues that will lift the listener up from the depths by that simple commiseration.
