This group of musicians, fronted by powerhouse vocalist Karen Lizotte, is a hard working and dedicated band that is well established in the Blues scene in Halifax with great tunes, smooth jazzy stylings, and ninja-like reflexes. In the past year Karen has played shows all around the east coast. The band has just finished recording an EP of 5 of Karen's original tunes, which channel Karen's many female blues favourites. The covers Karen chooses for her shows include tunes by Blues women such as Koko Taylor, Ruth Brown, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Sharon Jones, Bonnie Raitt, and Susan Tedeschi, and a sprinkling of some Blues men - B.B King, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, and Colin James.

Some comments from fans:

Karen Lizotte's explosive vocals, fueled by a band that was on fire, moved through volatile arrangements flowing like molten lava. Hot! Hot! Hot!

These young musicians are in total communication with each other and make their music a language they speak fluently and share with warmth and excitement, captivating the audience and engaging them in what becomes a nuclear experience. I'll tell you~ Nova Scotia has talent!!

I fell in love last night - loved your sound, loved your stage presence. Can't wait for the CD launch! :-) Thanks for a great show!
