Hannah Taylor was born a little orphan girl to a black bear in the woods of Upstate New York. She was raised on blackberries and moonshine. As an adult, she ventured to Philadelphia, home of the Citywide Special and Country Night at Bob & Barbara's Lounge, a place where she quickly found a home crooning old school country and breaking boy's hearts left and right. But she missed the bears.
“We couldn’t take it anymore, so we split,” says former Jesse Lundy Band drummer Alec Meltzer. Joining him were bassist Chris Bicksler and guitarist Rekardo Lee.
Formed almost 10 years ago, the Trio has gone through several formats focused on blues and rock. The initial plan was to act as the backing band for area artists for one-off shows, giving the trio the opportunity to find their own voice by constantly challenging themselves with new music. But then they met up with Hannah and were wooed by her sultry, yet sassy singing style and stage presence. Following her long stint as Aretha Franklin's backup singer, they called her up and the band instantly locked into a rockabilly/blues format that sat nicely among all their tastes.
Rockabilly, country and rock fans alike agree… Despite a lack of male pompadours, the band knows how to keep the dance floor hopping and the drinks flowing.
