“She's a whirlwind and dynamo with more power onstage than a Columbia River hydro dam. That's bandleader, show-woman, composer and diva, Lucy Hammond. As front-person of her own four-piece, The Lucy Hammond Band, she describes their sound as "soulful, rockin', blues." With a stage presence that’s as brassy as it is subtle, Hammond brings elements of Etta James, Janis Joplin, Candye Kane, Susan Tedeschi and even Mama Cass Elliot that create a personality as compelling as it is bold. The listener can't help but be drawn in and absorbed within both the music and stage performance. While she doesn't consider herself a blues purist, the blues are strongly incorporated throughout her music, both in covers and original songs. The term 'roadhouse' comes to mind when describing the gritty grooves and low-down pocket where the band keeps the music's flow.”
“Lucy Hammond is a familiar face around the CBA. You can find her at the monthly membership meetings passing out fliers promoting her upcoming shows. She has played at a number of events, and you can find her out and about at local clubs. Lucy is that boisterous brunette beauty that can belt the blues. ”
