With four of the most popular Americana vocalists in the Monterey Bay area, Sherry Austin & Henhouse delights their fans with their engaging stage presence, upbeat songs, and great harmonies. Their music covers the range from sweet love songs to gritty, rockin’ songs about cars, trains, and love gone wrong. They sing with authority and passion,their distinctive blend of folk, country and rock, is filled with warmth and conviction. The blend of harmonies between the four women is exquisite.Sharon Allen loves to sing. And people love to hear her sing. She possesses a beautiful, unaffected voice that is gentle and sweet on the ears.
A musical neophyte compared to the rest of the group, Sherry’s been making up for lost time. Putting out three albums in the past ten years, her music has received regular airplay from KPIG and many other stations worldwide. The Sherry Austin Band has played everything from big festivals to intimate house concerts.
Sugar by the Pound came together in the Spring of 2014 in The Santa Cruz Mountains of California and is one of the only all-female bluegrass bands, not only in the area, but for miles around. Their combination of traditional bluegrass music, country-style blues, honky tonk, and classical influences hits home with a wide audience and has made the group a perfect fit for festivals, markets, churches, barn dances, farm tours, clubs, breweries, and and private parties throughout California and beyond.. The players–Erin Valdivia on vocals and guitar, Cristy Aloysi on vocals, mandolin and guitar, Sarah Farrell Mackessey on vocals and bass, and Alison Steele on vocals and banjo were classically trained musicians as well as campfire poets prior to forming the band. From California, New York, Indiana, and Virginia, Sugar by the Pound brings East and West Coast sounds together forming something truly unique yet wonderfully nostalgic.
