About the event

About Soulful Femme: WEBSITE | LISTEN Wellons  has been performing since the late 1970’s in a variety of bands, among  them any number of accomplished outfits, including the Rhythm Machine,  Jumpstreet, Shaker, the Cruisers, the Elmonics, The Real Deal Band, and  The Stevee Wellons Band. Over the course of her career, she shared  stages with the Dazz Band, Cameo, Peaches and Herb, and Howard Hewett,  among many others. She’s released two solo albums — Stevee Wellons -All  Natural Ingredients and one simply titled Stevee. In addition, she  recently co-wrote and performed background vocals for the artist known  as Sun King Rising, A.K.A John Blangero. She previously taught at the  Afro-American Music Institute and is currently an adjunct professor at  the Community College of Allegheny County.

Cheryl brings an equally impressive resume to the table.  She’s been a student of guitar since the age of nine and later became a  graduate of the prestigious Berklee School of Music. A three-time  recipient of the prestigious Jim Weber Award accorded to the blues  guitarist of the year, she claims extensive studio experience while  citing such early influences as Jimi Hendrix, Duane Allman, Tower of  Power, and Burt Bacharach. In addition, she’s a Delaney Guitars-endorsed  artist who has two signature models that were designed with her in  mind.

The two met at a Blues Society event in 2014 and clicked  immediately. A year later, they competed at the International Blues  Competition in Memphis. Their first album, It Is Well With My Soul, was  released in 2021. They then found themselves touring consistently,  sharing stages with Tommy Castro and opening for such acts as Robert  Cray, Mavis Staples, Ana Popovic, Samantha Fish, Shemekia Copeland,  Joanne Shaw Taylor, Bernard Allison, Mike Zito, Albert Castiglia, and  Jeremiah Johnson. “The planets were all in line when Cheryl and I met,”  Stevee insists. “It became obvious that we had to take this journey  simply because it was meant to be. She and I are women of a certain age  and aren't quite ready to hang up our instruments…We still have a lot to  say and we’re determined to say it in the here and now!” That’s especially evident with their new album, the aptly  titled ATTITUDE. Recorded at Fat Rabbit Studies in New Jersey, it was  produced by blues great Albert Castiglia and engineered by Grammy  nominated Dave Gross. It also features an impressive array of special  guests, with Castiglia contributing guitar, the great Tommy Castro  guesting on “Talkin' Loud and Sayin' Nothing,” and multiple  award-winning singer and guitarist Kevin Burt dueting on “Insane  Asylum.” The other musicians include Michael Bram (formally of Jason  Mraz’s band on drums), Matt Raymond on bass, Doug Woolverton on trumpet,  Mark Earley on tenor saxophone, and Dave Gross on Hammond organ and  percussion.
