Excerpt from Will Phoenix’s L.A. Examiner article: The ladies had all been working solo before they decided to form their blues band. Texas native Capasso moved to L.A. after high school having been interested in performing since childhood. She worked on the club scene and even sang background vocals for Motown Artist, Bobby Taylor at the CINE GRILL at The Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, California. It would not be until 2011-after a long Tuesday night residency performing with the Cats-A-Renos at The Pig n Whistle in Hollywood, that she would join forces with her friends as The Scorch Sisters. Native New Yorker Morgan first worked as a session singer when she moved to the west coast. Her raspy blues-based vocals scored her gigs doing various commercial jingles and numerous songwriter demos. She was nominated for a 2010 Grammy for her work in the film Love n’ Dancing which was produced by Bruce Robb of the Robb Brothers’ Cherokee Studios. She would work with the musical Robbs yet again when she joined The Scorch Sisters. Allison, originally from Missouri, has played in various venues since she was 16. She relocated to California and graduated from The University of Southern California having earned a degree in studio/jazz guitar (cum laude). Allison also graduated with honors from Musicians Institute (GIT), of Hollywood, CA. She was nominated as “outstanding guitarist” by the L.A. Music Awards and in 2001 was a finalist for the Independent Music Awards competition before eventually signing on with The Scorch Sisters in 2011. A new Scorch Sisters CD is in the works and will be released on Kimberly Allison’s Starliner Music label in the near future.
