Come help us celebrate the release of Cathy Lemons' incredible new CD Black Crow with special guests Kid Andersen and Volker Strifler, right here at Biscuits and Blues!
Cathy Lemons is a blues singing legend who has performed regularly in the Bay Area for 25 years. She has been described as “the finest light-skinned female blues vocalist in the U.S” (Real Blues 2010) with a “velvety and hypnotic voice—resonant of “a female Howlin’ Wolf” (Fulltimeblues 2010). Hailing from Dallas, TX she honed her chops with the likes of Anson Funderburg and performed with Stevie Ray Vaughan. She has worked with some of the great names in blues including John Lee Hooker (she toured as his send-off singer in 1987), Tommy Castro, Ron Thompson, Kid Andersen, Steve Freund, and many others.
Cathy Lemons writes much of her own material and has branched out into the singer-songwriter category, writing lyrics and melodies that are as haunting as they are autobiographically revealing.
Since July of 2012, she has been been bringing Northern California blues musicians together and producing high profile shows such as "Guitar Slingers & Blues Singers: A Blues Revue" at The Great American Music Hall: and "Tip Your Hat to the Blues: West Coast Songwriter Session" at Slim's, as well as benefits to help members of the blues community in need.
