Winner of Independent Blues Award for “Best Blues-Soul Artist of 2019,” The Lucky Losers’ music is a throwback to the hybrid of soul, blues, rock, gospel, and country that emerged in the late 1960’s with impassioned vocals, electrifying vocal interplay, and some powerful harmonica.
Described as “the finest light-skinned female blues vocalist in the U.S” (Real Blues/2010), fiery Dallas-born entertainer Cathy Lemons has a velvet voice with a gritty edge and the rebel conviction of a woman risen from the ashes. New Jersey native Phil Berkowitz "has earned renown as one of the West Coast’s most distinctive harp players, as well as for his sharp, resonant tenor" (Living Blues/ 2018). Based In San Francisco and accompanied by a dynamic four-piece ensemble, The Lucky Losers have been nominated for a total of 15 awards since 2015. They have travelled to 33 states in the U.S. and have completed 8 national tours.
