Connie Hawkins - LEAD VOCAL
From the age of four or five standing on a chair at a local radio station in order to reach the microphone... Connie has always been a singer... until seventeen years ago her entire singing career was in church and on stages with nationally known Gospel greats... when people would refer to her they would always say... "You know... that red-headed white girl that sounds black".. and it was true. So when the kids were grown and at the urging of her husband Steve... she decided to jump into the Blues feet first... turns out it was a natural thing.... her Blues influences did not come as much from other female artists but more from her favorite male artist... Luther Allison... she's really come into her own in the last few years... take a listen and see if you don't agree...
