Cindy Graven and Gary LaDuke combine a blend of musical influences ranging from Janis Joplin and Bonnie Raitt on vocals to Tom Scott and Grover Washington, Jr. on sax.
LaDuke started playing sax and guitar as a youth and has played professionally since his teens. Relocating from NY to Los Angeles in the early '80s, he has toured the country with many national and international artists as a multi-instrumentalist, written and produced music for radio and TV, produced albums and CDs for many musicians and was a music and music technology educator at several Los Angeles area universities.
Graven started singing professionally a decade ago and has performed at the most popular wineries, clubs and restaurants in the area. Blending a soulful vocal style with raw feeling, she has become one of the premier female blues singers in the region. She is a frequent guest performer with many local acts.
GRAVEN & LaDUKE are also regularly in the recording studio, having cut over 20 tracks to date with more always in the works. Their tracks have been ranked as high as #3 on the St. Louis Reverbnation Blues/Indie/RnB charts. GRAVEN & LaDUKE music is available on iTunes and Amazon.com.
