"Listeners get stimulated hearing this unusual Rock, Alternative, Soul mixture..."
- Washington Post
At first glance Blackbird Pond may seem like a bunch of naive "preppy' college kids looking to play there melody-maker covers. Then... comes Luisa, a sassy, sultry-sophisticated vocal, a caffeine buzz Nina Simone…can you imagine? She’s small, but when revved-up, comes a raspy powered engine goddess sent voice.
"This Is New. Powerful! I Like This!"
- Chris Carter, DJ, Y-107, Los Angeles, CA
Blackbird Pond takes the basics of rock and adds pop, groove, indie-country, southern-stomp-soul, and dirty-blues - the harmonization of various genres.
