TWO ARTISTS WITH STELLAR MUSICAL CAREERS EMBARK ON A NEW MUSICAL ADVENTURE
Texas legend Jay Boy Adams is a Top-Five Americana Chart artist who has toured with ZZ Top, the Allman Brothers Band, Joe Cocker and Stephen Stills. Zenobia, who performed in the original Broadway production of Hair, is a three-time Grammy nominated singer and songwriter.
Jay Boy and Zenobia met in Santa Fe, N. M., beneath the clear desert skies. Inspired by this soaring horizon, they realized that they could make musical magic together. Along with the powerhouse rhythm section of Mister Sister (Josh English on drums and Trixie Merkin on bass), they’ve combined the best of blues, soul and Americana into an irresistible mix.
For the past year, Jay Boy Adams & Zenobia have been rocking Santa Fe audiences and drawing rave reviews for their unique blend of slide guitar, keyboards and harmonies. One look at the seemingly boundless Santa Fe horizon, and you’ll realize what J.B. and Lady Z. have known from the beginning—the sky’s the limit!
