“A throwback to the hybrid of soul, blues, rock, gospel, and country that emerged in the late 1960’s … impassioned vocals …electrifying interplay… powerful harmonica… dramatic, heavy blues rock…. such a compelling listen… haunting soulful….Roots music listeners who take a chance on the Lucky losers will surely hit the jackpot.”

2015 "A Winning Hand," Produced by Keeping the Blues Alive Award Recipient for 2016, Kid Andersen, Cathy Lemons & Phil Berkowitz

The Lucky Losers, featuring Cathy Lemons & Phil Berkowitz
with Special Guests Steve Freund (Sunnyland Slim, Big Walter Horton, Koko Taylor); Kid Andersen (Rick Estrin & The Nightcats); Ben Rice (International Blues Challenge award winner for "Guitar" 2014)

“To my ears, most modern blues is stale and uninspired. I can’t think of another genre that cranks out so much dull material. So when an exception comes along, it’s all that more remarkable. Cathy Lemons and Phil Berkowitz sing together in harmony, and trade vocal lines on this album’s dozen tunes, backed by a solid but not showy band and horn section. They capture the fun and excitement of a bluesy band in a dimly lit bar. And at its core, that’s what modern blues is about. That Berkowitz is a skilled blues harpist only adds to the enjoyment.” -- Bill Kopp, Musoscribe, August 31, 2015
