With The Carolyn Sills Combo’s debut disc, fans of ‘proper country’ have some new heroes,” says Country Music People Magazine.

Fans of classic country, blues and western swing from the 40s/50s are falling in love with the band’s original songs, written and produced by Sills and her longtime guitarist and husband, Gerard Egan. With four of the most popular Americana vocalists in the Monterey Bay area, Henhouse delights their fans with their engaging stage presence, upbeat songs, and great harmonies. Their music covers the range from sweet love songs to gritty, rockin’ songs about cars, trains, and love gone wrong. They sing with authority and passion,their distinctive blend of folk, country and rock, is filled with warmth and conviction. The blend of harmonies between the four women is exquisite.Sharon Allen loves to sing. And people love to hear her sing. She possesses a beautiful, unaffected voice that is gentle and sweet on the ears.  A musical neophyte compared to the rest of the group, Sherry’s been making up for lost time.

Blame Sally

Blame Sally

If you sense a slight incongruity in the title of Blame Sally’s Speeding Ticket and a Valentine, rest assured that it’s as purposeful as the life it describes is random. The album lifts its name from a line in the bridge of the hard- charging leadoff single, “Living Without You,” which describes a day, or maybe entire existence,that’s “sweet and sour at the same time/mink and a porcupine/speeding ticket and a valentine.” Clearly, this is a band that knows its oxymorons.  The four women who make up the Bay area- based group have some experience with improbable complexities and contradictions. Almost everything about their history is contrary to conventional wisdom. For one thing, they put their individual careers aside to start Blame Sally when they were in their late 30s and 40s—the age at which bands are traditionally supposed to break up and begin solo careers. For another, this is obviously an all-woman band—“girl groups” usually being the novel province of youthful upstarts, not mature singer/songwriters. Splitting the frontperson status among each of the four members goes against the agreed-upon maxim (agreed upon by everyone but the Beatles, anyway) that every group needs a single strong focal point. And didn’t they get the memo that women, in particular women in show biz, are supposed to be packing it in at this point, not making fresh introductions?
