The Lucky Losers
San Francisco - California - United States

The Lucky Losers, San Francisco’s finest male/female duet fronted band, deliver an inventive, hypnotic spin on 60’s blues and roots music. Cathy Lemons and Phil Berkowitz breathe new life into American songwriting tradition and the vanishing art of duet singing. The stark contrast between Lemons’ velvet voice with gritty edge and Berkowitz’ elegant tenor makes for an electrifying performance. Their first album, “A Winning Hand” received international attention from critics and made The Roots Music Report’s “Top 50 Blues Albums of 2015.”  Their second album, “In Any Town,” made Making a Scene’s “Top Independent Blues Albums of 2016” list plus the indie king nominated them for five Independent Blues Music Awards (two in 2017, and three in 2018 (“Best Blues/ Soul Artist/ 2018,” “Best Blues/Soul CD /2017 & 2018,” and “Best Blues/Soul Song/ 2017 & 2018). Critics from Rolling Stone to Living Blues have given this songwriting/singing team a huge thumbs up.
