The Lucky Losers, San Francisco’s finest male/female duet fronted five-piece touring 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 a gritty edge and Berkowitz’ elegant tenor makes for an electrifying performance. Their first album, “A Winning Hand” received national 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 Awards. They have been nominated for “Best Traditional Album / 2015,” “Best Contemporary Album /2016” and “Best Harmonica Player/ 2016” by Blues 411. Critics from Bill Kopp to Living Blues have given this songwriting/singing team a huge thumbs up. The Lucky Losers will be performing some new songs from their forthcoming album “Blind Spot” produced at Greaseland Studios with 2016 “Keeping the Blues Alive” award winner Kid Andersen.

The Lucky Losers Official Website:

“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.”
