Blues With Attitude
Thursday, October 24, 2002
Lara Price''s voice is smoky and shimmering with sincerity. It brings to mind images of things soaring, falling and shimmying in the breeze of the blues she sings. Backed by a band that compliments her voice and style, she croons with a depth that can cause goose bumps. It''s classic blues with the edge of rocking riffs, a sound that is both familiar and modern.
Her music transcends the blues and crosses the line into music that is simply and unequivocally good. Ms. Price is certainly well-rounded. Drawing inspiration from greats like Aretha Franklin, she''s dabbled in several sorts of music, and studied operatic voice at Boise State University in Idaho. In her four years in the Bay Area, she''s earned a following of loyal fans from San Luis Obispo to San Fran, always reeling in the crowds with her versatility, her range and the distinct, haunting timbre of her magnificent voice. See for yourself.
Lara Price plays Ocean Thunder this Saturday at 9pm. 214 Lighthouse Ave., Monterey. 643-9169.
