Sena Ehrhardt is unquestionably one of the freshest and most dynamic emerging young voices on the blues scene today. Once the lights come on, her commanding stage presence and gritty, soulfully emotional vocal prowess capture the audience, belying her demure appearance. The buzz about Sena has gone nationwide as word has gotten out about her incendiary performances at clubs and festivals across the Midwest and beyond, as well as the uniformly enthusiastic response to her brilliant Blind Pig debut recording, Leave The Light On- voted 2012's Blues Blast Magazine's "Best New Artist Debut Release" award winner.
Additionally, Sena was a nominee for the Blues Foundation's 2012 "Best New Artist Debut" Blues Music Award, Blues 411's award for "Best New Artist Debut Recording" and the 2012 "Sean Costello Rising Star Award" by Blues Blast Magazine.
In 2013 for her second recording, Sena teamed up with one of the foremost producers in the worlds of rock and blues (Santana, Luther Allison, Stevie Ray Vaughan, etc.), multi-Grammy Award winner Jim Gaines. The result of their collaboration is a groove-rich exploration of the blues in all its moods. All In truly delivers on the promise of Leave The Light On and places Ehrhardt among the very best and most versatile of current blues vocalists. Throughout, Sena's performances are fresh and incisive, delivered in a style that moves effortlessly from sultry to declarative to passionately forceful. All In received nominations for the Blues 411 2013 Contemporary Release of the Year and 2013 Blues Blast Music Award for Song of the Year for the song penned by Ehrhardt, 'Dreamin' or Dyin'. All In marks Sena's ascendance to blues elite status, is included in Living Blues Magazine's top Blues Albums of 2013 and is one of the most acclaimed blues releases of the year.
2013 also marks the addition of young blues-rock guitarist and vocalist, Cole Allen, to the band who brings forth a contemporary and fresh dynamic to live performances as well as upcoming recordings in 2014 and beyond!
