(2014/Blind Pig) 11 tracks. Product info: With her newest release, Live My Life,
singing sensation Sena Ehrhardt continues to forge her own personal and
intelligent take on the blues. Produced by Grammy-winner David Z.
(Buddy Guy, Prince, Jonny Lang, Gov't Mule), the album features Sena's
all-new band lineup of energetic, hard-driving, top-flight musicians.
After serving as her band’s lead
guitarist and songwriting collaborator through her first two releases,
Sena’s father stepped aside earlier this year. With a new album and a
powerful new band behind her, Sena is looking forward to winning new
fans and wowing audiences throughout the country as well as
internationally, as she continues to come into her own as a vocalist,
songwriter and entertainer.
Sena’s growing reputation as one of the
most engaging and exciting young voices on the current blues scene, and
the buzz about her incendiary performances at clubs and festivals, have
caught the attention of roots music heavyweights. She’s been invited to
open concerts for B.B. King, ZZ Top, Robert Cray, Dickey Betts, the late
Johnny Winter and Gregg Allman. Live My Life further confirms Sena’s ascendance to blues elite status.
“Working in the studio with producer
David Z. at the helm was a dream come true. His catalog of work has
been, in some ways, a soundtrack of my life – ranging from Prince to
Jonny Lang. In the studio he brought inspired and emotional performances
out of myself, my band and the guest musicians on my album. It was
truly an honor to work with a creative and contemporary living legend in
music. The carefully selected covers are songs that I have held dear to
my heart for years, with my own spin on their classic stories and
appeal. The process of writing the original compositions for this album,
along with my guitarist, Cole Allen, was incredibly rewarding.”
With her commanding stage presence, and
gritty, soulfully emotional vocal prowess, Sena Ehrhardt will continue
to rank among the very best and most versatile of current blues
vocalists. The journey’s just beginning for this artist, but with the
release of Live My Life, along with her expressive songwriting
and outstanding performances, the recognition and accolades for this
rising star will continue to amass.
