The Lucky Losers

Nominated for ROAD WARRIOR in 2022 & winners of FIVE Independent Blues Awards in 2021 (including “Artist of the Year” – Cathy Lemons, “Song of the Year” Godless Land“), The Lucky Losers are San Francisco’s finest male/female duet fronted 5-piece band — a throwback to the hybrid of soul, blues, rock, gospel, and country that emerged in the late 1960’s with impassioned vocal performances, electrifying musical interplay, and powerful harmonica.
Described as “the finest light-skinned female blues vocalist in the U.S” [Real Blues – 2010], fiery Dallas-born entertainer Cathy Lemons has a velvet voice with a gritty edge and the rebel conviction of a woman risen from the ashes. New Jersey native Phil Berkowitz “has earned renown as one of the West Coast’s most distinctive harp players, as well as for his sharp, resonant tenor” [Living Blues – 2018]. The stark contrast between incandescent Lemons and elegant Berkowitz makes for a captivating musical union, breathing new life into American songwriting tradition and the vanishing art of duet singing.
