About

Althea’s music can best be described as in-your-face indie blues with heavy doses of jazz, funk, and rock featuring her powerful, soulful voice and guitar skills to match. Althea has been playing top festivals and venues in Chicago, The Midwest, and beyond for the last five years, including opening for Arc Angel’s own Doyle Bramhall II on tour late last year. In 2012, Althea won the McHenry County junior talent contest and has been featured numerous times in regional newspapers, radio, and TV outlets. Althea has opened for American Idol finalist Bucky Covington and on many occasions with the multi-Grammy-winning band Los Lobos. When she’s not rocking her solo career, she’s in the studio writing for artists like Doyle Bramhall; most recent writing credit being Doyle’s song “Everything You Need” featuring Eric Clapton.
