The Lucky Losers
The Lucky Losers
“A throwback to the hybrid of soul, blues, rock, gospel, and country that emerged in the late 1960’s … impassioned vocals …electrifying interplay… powerful harmonica… dramatic, heavy blues rock…. such a compelling listen… haunting soulful…. Roots music listeners who take a chance on the Lucky losers will surely hit the jackpot."

-ROBERT H. CATALIOTTI, Living Blues Magazine

The Lucky Losers are a five-piece band from San Francisco headed up by vocalist Cathy Lemons and vocalist/ harmonica player Phil Berkowitz. Their music is a vocally rich, harp infused, eclectic 60’s sound. They perform highly personalized covers of rare blues classics plus stunning originals. Since the band’s formation in 2014, The Lucky Losers have released three chart topping albums produced at award-winning Greaseland Studios with Kid Andersen. Their first album “A Winning Hand” made the Roots Music Report’s “Top Blues Albums of 2015,” and their 2nd Album, "In Any Town," was nominated in for 5 awards, 2 of which were Independent Blues Awards. Their 3rd Greaseland album “Blind Spot,” is officially scheduled for release May 18 2018. In support of the album, The Lucky Losers embarked on a 15 state/26 venue tour through the South-west, Midwest and South from April 11 –May 16 of 2018.
