The Lucky Losers have hit the jackpot with their third album, Blind Spot.
The critics all agree (Downbeat Magazine, Blues Music Magazine, Living Blues, American Blues Scene, Blues News Germany, Blues Matters and more) that San Francisco’s finest male/female duet-fronted band, The Lucky Losers have hit the jackpot! Cathy Lemons and Phil Berkowitz serve up a road warrior's tale on their third album, “Blind Spot,” released on Dirty Cat Records. “Blind Spot” is a primal call to awareness in the eye of an irresistible storm. Traveling through a winding soundscape of modern blues, vintage R&B, and Americana, “Blind Spot” presents unvarnished testimony to the fragile and fleeting state of our world. Caught between hope and catastrophe, veteran blues vocalists, Cathy Lemons and Phil Berkowitz take a fearless ride into the unknown, witnessing the good, bad, and ugly of contemporary America through a fractured rear-view mirror.
Recorded at award-winning Greaseland Studios in San Jose, California, Blind Spot continues The Lucky Losers' long-standing relationship with acclaimed producer/engineer, Kid Andersen. Bringing back the vanishing art of vocal duets, the album is solely comprised of original material created by Cathy Lemons and Phil Berkowitz alongside their illustrious and multi-talented songwriting partner, Danny Caron (Charles Brown). “Blind Spot” features scintillating musical contributions from three-time Blues Music Award winner guitarist, Kid Andersen, IBMA Momentum Award winning violinist Annie Staninec (Rod Stewart), 2018 BMA nominated saxophonist, Nancy Wright, and Laura Chavez, listed as one of the “Top 50 Sensational Female Guitarists” by Guitar Player Magazine.
The album has been on the Roots Music Report’s “Top 50 Blues Chart” for 26 weeks/ 4 weeks Top 10; and for 30 weeks on the “Top 50 Contemporary Blues Chart” with 13 weeks in the Top 10! Nine of their original singles have also consistently charted in the RMR Top 10! Blind Spot also peaked at #10 on The Living Blues Radio Chart in May of 2018. And Downbeat Magazine has listed “Blind Spot” as one of the “Best Albums for 2018”!
