Bianca und Sierra Casady were born in New York, but Sierra left New York to live in France when she was a teenager. When she was a girl Sierra sang gospels and spirituals and later she studied opera. Bianca, the younger sister, started writing songs when she was nine and practised singing under the shower.

All The King's Horses
out 27.10.2006


Do you know what a "lucky Jim" is? No? That's someone who is always lucky and happy. Or at least everybody thinks so. "Here comes Lucky Jim," they say. It seems the band Lucky Jim is lucky too, especially singer Gordon Graham. Gordon's career was slow for a while, but then came a sudden turning point! "After my girlfriend left me, I found Ben. I made lots of music, I got a record deal and made a new album, which was fairly successful!"

They’re supposed to be “the most consistently brilliant and unique American groups”. Their music is an unclassifiable mix of avant-garde, country, soul and jazz. The band was formed of Kurt Wagner, the guitarist Jim Watkins and bass player Marc Trovillion. They all used to go to high school together. Later they became almost a big band. A multi-instrumentalist, a drummer and a percussionist joined them. They added a vocalist/saxophonist, a steel guitarist, and an organist. From that moment on, they were touring and producing one record after the other. That for not only the journalists liked them. The number of fans was constantly increasing!
