Known far and wide for her sensual guitar playing, songwriting gifts and soulful vocals, local blues legend Sonny Hess fires up shows around town performing in a variety of forms and combinations - solo, in duos, full bands, and as part of the venerable NW Women Rhythm & Blues, which may include fellow blueswomen Lady Kat, Duffy Bishop and many more. Named Outstanding R&B Act and Best New Artist when the Sonny Hess Power Band appeared in 1991, Hess has brought her particular brand of the blues to northwest audiences for nearly two decades. She's also been a serious supporter of fellow artists, producing the NW Women R&B shows and playing regularly with Ellen Whyte (as part of the duo Jane Doe), Leah Hinchcliff, and Lisa Mann.
With his imagination often dwelling in the very real places of his past and present, as well as in the possible future, McDougall’s songs may very well seat you by a coffee-can fire in the middle of a dry California river-bed, pull you up onto a freight train in the lush spring-time of the Pacific northwest, raise your voice in hymns with the entire family on a Thanksgiving afternoon, or haste your good-bye to civilization as you know it, as you ramble on with all you possess on your back.
Fact, fiction, and a little in between, McDougall carries on the relevant tradition of oral history and folklore, making it a part of everyday life and sharing it with those around him. Inspired by the word of God, his family, friends, fellow workers and fellow travelers met along the way, McDougall wishes to keep to the unwritten rule of using what was left by those before while leaving something of your own for those who will come after.
