Leo was born in Iran to British parents and lived there until 1981 when his mother was asked to leave after 22 years. With his mum and sister he moved to London where he spent the next 7 years finishing up school. After a short stint as a sailor on the privately owned yacht, America, he went to boatbuilding school and traveled the globe building, repairing and sailing boats.
He grew up to the Beatles, but it wasn’t until he saw Albert King in London in 1990 that he knew where his path was to lead him. Landing in Houston in the early 90’s he discovered an authenticity to the Blues which was hard to garner from vinyl.
He worked as a carpenter for the next 15 years, a one year stint in New York City, and a three year stint as a Conservator’s assistant restoring sculptures by Miro, De Kooning, H. Moore, Giacometti, Calder among others.
Bella Adela is a native Houstonian and proud of it. Her parents raised her on the music of Doug Sahm, Townes Van Zandt, Ry Cooder, Freddy Fender, Bob Wills, Conjunto Bernal, Los Lobos, and Willie Nelson to name just a few. After years of studying classical viola, earning a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance from the University of North Texas and a subsequent Master's Degree from the same institution she returned home to Houston, picked up the Fender bass and never looked back.
She enjoys getting addicted to songs and playing them 58 times in a row to the exasperation of everyone around her, searching for the best cupcake in Houston, taking road trips, fighting crime, reading nonfiction books, drinking Malibu coconut rum, smoking her pipe, fending off the media (though not the paparazzi), and thanking her lucky stars everyday that she lives in Houston, TX.
George Nuñez grew up in D.H., living around the crazy people there when one day he heard Stevie Ray Vaughan. This experience turned him from a hard core punk rocker into a blues enthusiast.
From then on he decided to expand his mind to everything else in the blues spectrum, be it funk, blues, soul and R&B. He played in the Dropkick Chihuahuas for about 10 years but now he thinks he found his true calling.
He has Leo, Adela and himself and the blues spirit, which will carry them along with the help of their fans. He loves road trips to the Texas Hill country, the Valluco, and to Mexico (before it went to hell), and loves to people watch. George says, “There ain’t nothing wrong with a good cold beer, no matter the brand. Yee haw. Y asî es la calabaza.”

The blues are not simply a format or style. They are part of the human condition. This Trio own it.
