Known far and wide for her sensual guitar playing, songwriting gifts and soulful vocals, local blues legend Sonny Hess fires up shows around town performing in a variety of forms and combinations - solo, in duos, full bands, and as part of the venerable NW Women Rhythm & Blues, which may include fellow blueswomen Lady Kat, Duffy Bishop and many more. Named Outstanding R&B Act and Best New Artist when the Sonny Hess Power Band appeared in 1991, Hess has brought her particular brand of the blues to northwest audiences for nearly two decades. She's also been a serious supporter of fellow artists, producing the NW Women R&B shows and playing regularly with Ellen Whyte (as part of the duo Jane Doe), Leah Hinchcliff, and Lisa Mann.
Ellen has put out three 3 CDs: "Different Point Of Blue," "Here and Gone," and "Standing At The Sunrise," featuring original compositions of blues with jazz, pop, funk, and r&b influences. The music is accessible and sophisticated at the same time.
