This week we welcome Lydia Pense & Cold Blood
The word legend certainly applies to Lydia Pense and Cold Blood…and not in some past tense-make-a-living-as-an-oldies-act sort of way either. Pense can still shout like a 60's soul diva and purr a slow blues tune with spine-tingling subtlety.
Cold Blood, as a whole, features a stellar group of musicians who have been playing together for nearly 20 years, all veteran Bay Area musicians who have played with many great artists including Elvin Bishop, Jefferson Starship, Boz Skaggs, Albert Collins and more.
It's been a long road, over 40 years to be exact, with a break somewhere in the middle. But Lydia and the band are living proof that a little time off can be a good thing. With their latest CD, Soul Of The Gypsy turning heads across the country, fans are remembering just what has been missing from music in the last few decades. The 12 songs exemplify how a performer can take great strides forward, without forgetting her roots. Of course, anything Lydia sings is sung well. She still has the chops, with the patina of a seasoned veteran who's done and seen it all.
