The founding of Vocalion merely begins with a craigslist ad. Sarah, a Kansas bred Astorian, was a vocalist looking for a blues project. Tommy, a Long Island based guitarist, was simply searching for a female vocalist to join his working blues band. After a few emails back and forth, they quickly set up an audition, and it was like love at first sight. Bill(drums), Tommy, and Sarah hit it off, and the rest was history.
Initially a group based on r&b/soul covers, the TD Blues band never seemed to find their niche. Keeping a bass player was always an issue, and the sound wasn't original. It had been done before. Each band member seemed to have their vision of how the band should be portrayed. Needless to say, the band soon thereafter broke up.
Since October 2011, Sarah, Bill, and Tommy have been working together to develop a unique blend of classic rock and blues, along with a sense of soul. They've worked long and hard to develop a sound that would nurture Sarah's melodic lines and intense lyrics.
