Hi there,

 

Merry Christmas!! It’s been an amazing year.  So many incrediable things have happened and I am very, very grateful.  I recently returned from Toronto where I performed as one of six featured vocalists for the women in blues revue. It was an incredible experience.   All of the women, aside from being insanely talented, were also really loving, accepting and supportive of each other. I had never experienced this level of support between female artists before.  It didn’t feel like a competition at all.  It felt like an offering of love and gratitude.

 

Here is a cool article about the Women in Blues revue: http://www.lillooetnews.net/article/20121205/LILLOOET0108/312059992/-1/lillooet/lady-sings-the-blues

 

We’ve also had a great photo shoot with artist/photographer Brittany Santos.  The pictures and CD cover art are coming along really well. This CD is going to be darker, sexier and I’m very excited about it!! For the Photoshoot I had my hair done by Kenny from RA.  He is AMAZING!!!  And I just love him to bits.  If you want an amazing stylist, go to him!!!

 

I have a new website and I’ve started a blog. Check it out at www.sabrinaweeks.com

PRESS

"“Sabrina Weeks & Swing Cat Bounce is a little city band with a big city sound and I do mean BIG. These cats can stand up against any Swing-ing Boogie Blues band out there today and not only hold their own, but blow the competition away.” "  John Vermilyea, The Blues Underground Network

"“It’s music that’s full of life, vitality and fun. While the “bouncers” are excellent musicians, it’s Weeks who dominates with a voice that sounds like it was trained back in the 1940s and 1950 s. She just gets that boogie down right.” "  Dale Bass, Reporter/Columnist, Kamloops This Week

"Sabrina Weeks brings the goods with a powerful voice and spirited sound. She's a talented artist that doesn’t take herself TOO seriously, which shines through with her sassy, yet strong song lyrics that are guaranteed to put a smile on your face.”   J-Man, Dawg FM
