“Scorch Sisters wowed the Real Blues Festival 2 audience….be ready for these Hollywood hipsters because they’ll ‘blue’ you away. I really dig these gals and I think you will too.”  

                                       Casey Reagan/AMERICAN BLUES NEWS

“The Scorch Sisters seize the blues as their own and subsequently fire it up with a unique intensity. They will demand your respect with their powerful vocals all the while having you wonder where the “Hell” have these ladies been hiding! The Scorch Sisters deliver the blues straight up: can someone say ‘Cheers’?”

       The recently-formed Scorch Sisters are a “super-group” of sorts whose principal members are highly-regarded SoCal musicians Francesca Capasso (vocals, percussion); Alicia McCracken Morgan (keyboards, vocals); and Kimberly “KC” Allison (guitars). Among the stellar bands and artists on the three ladies’ collective musical resume’s: Neil Young; Rod Stewart; Delaney Bramlett; Billy Vera and the Beaters; Joe Houston; Zola Moon; Don & Dewey; Bobby Womack; Melissa Etheridge; Spencer Davis; Carmine Appice; Randy Jackson; Some Like It Hot Revue; and Francesca and the Flames. Scorch Sisters made their performing debut at this past April’s “Blues For The Rising Sun” benefit in Long Beach, followed by a headlining appearance at this past May’s Real Blues Festival of Orange County 2.

     “Francesca Capasso, singing from her soul, with fellow Scorch Sisters Alicia Morgan and guitarist Kimberly Allison, really brought it with their opening uptempo shuffle “Blues For Barnaby” and a scorching (excuse the pun!) guitar solo by Allison on “Still Remember,” said Reagan. “Alicia is an awesome keyboard player…Francesca will take your heart if you let her…and you will,” concludes Reagan in his revue, which ran in American Blues News.
