HENHOUSE with RICK SHEA.
HENHOUSE.... has found that magical combination in music that's often wished for, but rarely found. Whether singing their own material or the songs of Kate Wolf and others, these four great vocalists come together to form an exquisite blend of harmonies. With Sherry Austin and Sharon Allen on guitar, Tracy Parker on bass and Santa Cruz legend, Patti Maxine on steel guitar, their music truly engages listeners with their warm and engaging spirit.
"With four of the most popular Americana vocalists in the Monterey Bay area, Sherry Austin with Henhouse delights their fans with their engaging stage presence, upbeat songs, and etherial harmonies. Fronted by Sherry Austin on Rhythm guitar and vocals, with Sharon Allen on vocals and guitar, Tracy Parker on bass and vocals, and Patti Maxine on steel and vocals, their music covers the range from sweet love songs to gritty, rockin' songs about cars, trains, and love gone wrong. They sing with authority and passion, their distinctive blend of folk, country and rock, is filled with warmth and conviction. The band performs original songs written by Sherry Austin and Sharon Allen, as well as much loved covers by Americana artists, such as Kate Wolf, Townes Van Zandt, and Nanci Griffith. The blend of harmonies between the four women is exquisite."
