The Lucky Losers 2017 Bio
The Lucky Losers, San Francisco’s finest male/female duet fronted band, deliver an inventive, hypnotic spin on 60’s blues and roots music. Cathy Lemons and Phil Berkowitz breathe new life into American songwriting tradition and the vanishing art of duet singing. The stark contrast between Lemons’ velvet voice with gritty edge and Berkowitz’ elegant tenor makes for an electrifying performance. Their first album, “A Winning Hand” received international attention from critics and made The Roots Music Report’s “Top 50 Blues Albums of 2015.” Their second album, “In Any Town,” made Making a Scene’s “Top Independent Blues Albums of 2016” list plus the indie king nominated them for two Independent Blues Music Awards: The album peaked at #6 on Living Blues, and RMR placed it #2 for "Top 50 Albums/ California/All Genres," and #3 on "Top Blues Rock Albums." They have been nominated for “Best Traditional Album / 2015,” “Best Contemporary Album /2016” and “Best Harmonica Player/ 2016” by Blues 411. Critics from Rolling Stone to Living Blues have given this songwriting/singing team a huge thumbs up.

“ A throwback to the hybrid of soul, blues, rock, gospel, and country that emerged in the late 1960’s … impassioned vocals …electrifying interplay… powerful harmonica… dramatic, heavy blues rock…. such a compelling listen… haunting soulful….Roots music listeners who take a chance on the Lucky losers will surely hit the jackpot.”
