POLLY O'KEARY and the RHYTHM METHOD
“GOOD GOLLY MISS POLLY YOU SURE CAN SING!!!” raved the Washington State Blues Society Bluesletter. And blues fans agreed, naming the 33-year-old bass playing diva the top female vocalist of 2003 and nominating her again in 2004 and 2005.
The lovely blues belter is backed by the Rhythm Method faeturing C.D. Woodbury on guitar, a veteran of the well-known blues scenes in the Portland and Austin areas, and drummer Les Merrihew who has played with everyone from Albert Collins to Pinetop Perkins.
The band recently completed the album “Gather ‘Round” under Grammy-award winning, multi-platinum producer Conrad Uno at Seattle 's legendary Egg Studio. The result is a sophisticated yet rootsy album that has become a DJ favorite on blues radio around the Pacific Northwest, including KISM in Bellingham and KSER in Seattle .
Yet as well-received as the album has been, it is the band's live performance that really knocks people out.
