- Sena Ehrhardt
"Make way for a rising star!"
- Jazz and Blues Report
"A real up 'n' coming talent in the blues world, singer Sena Ehrhardt's third Blind Pig album, features a brand spankin' new backing band that breathes fire into the material. She has the goods, a larger-than-life voice that wrings maximum effect from the lyrics. Live My Life has all the necessary ingredients to be huge." -AboutBlues.com
"Live My Life by Minnesota vocalist supreme Sena Ehrhardt should push this former nurse into the big time. Her new songwriting partner Cole Allen heads up her hot new band on these soulful new originals and carefully picked covers. Sena is tough yet tender and it's that exact disparity that makes her the artist she is. Sena....remember that name." -Aquarian Weekly
"Throughout, her clear soprano sounds simultaneously tough and tender. The stakes have definitely gone up for Sena Ehrhardt, but if the excellent Live My Life is any indication, she's more than ready to rise up to them."-Living Blues
"Ehrhardt's vocals continue to grow in both power and subtlety with phrasing that can leap from a purr to a growl in a heartbeat."- Relix Magazine
"Sena's voice goes from a bedroom whisper to punching you right between the eyes with its power. Sena's simultaneously soulful, dynamic, and emotive voice combined with her new band cements her as one of the leading contemporary female blues rock artists."
-Blues Rock Review
With her newest release, Live My Life, singing sensation Sena Ehrhardt continues to forge her own personal and intelligent take on the blues. Produced by Grammy-winner David Z. (Buddy Guy, Prince, Jonny Lang, Gov't Mule), the album features Sena's all-new band lineup of energetic, hard-driving, top-flight musicians.
After serving as her band’s lead guitarist and songwriting collaborator through her first two releases, Sena’s father stepped aside earlier this year. With a new album and a powerful new band behind her, Sena is looking forward to winning new fans and wowing audiences throughout the country as well as internationally, as she continues to come into her own as a vocalist, songwriter and entertainer.
Sena’s growing reputation as one of the most engaging and exciting young voices on the current blues scene, and the buzz about her incendiary performances at clubs and festivals, have caught the attention of roots music heavyweights. She’s been invited to open concerts for B.B. King, ZZ Top, Robert Cray, Dickey Betts, the late Johnny Winter and Gregg Allman. Live My Life further confirms Sena’s ascendance to blues elite status.
“Working in the studio with producer David Z. at the helm was a dream come true. His catalog of work has been, in some ways, a soundtrack of my life – ranging from Prince to Jonny Lang. In the studio he brought inspired and emotional performances out of myself, my band and the guest musicians on my album. It was truly an honor to work with a creative and contemporary living legend in music. The carefully selected covers are songs that I have held dear to my heart for years, with my own spin on their classic stories and appeal. The process of writing the original compositions for this album, along with my guitarist, Cole Allen, was incredibly rewarding.”
With her commanding stage presence, and gritty, soulfully emotional vocal prowess, Sena Ehrhardt will continue to rank among the very best and most versatile of current blues vocalists. The journey’s just beginning for this artist, but with the release of Live My Life, along with her expressive songwriting and outstanding performances, the recognition and accolades for this rising star will continue to amass.
