Ana Popovic

L.A. based, Belgrade born guitar-player and singer ANA POPOVIC is back on the road promoting her new triple album TRILOGY - Her most ambitious project yet.

With TRILOGY Ana releases three albums in one! Twenty-three funk, rock/blues and jazz tunes produced by Grammy Award winner Warren Riker (Lauryn Hill, Carlos Santana), Grammy Award winner Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy) and Delfeayo Marsalis, one of the top trombonists, composers and producers in jazz today. Guest appearances include Joe Bonamassa, Robert Randolph and many others.

The only female guitarist part of the ‘all-star’ Experience Hendrix 2014 - ’17 line-up about the release: "In an era where most are skeptic about the current state and future of the music industry, I wanted TRILOGY to tell a different story. The record biz might be broken and Spotify might rip us off, but that can’t keep an artist down. Creativity is very much alive, and music is the celebration of life."

Ana, born in Serbia (formerly Yugoslavia), grew up in a family where music was very important. All throughout her youth, her father would invite friends over for nightly jam sessions. In this atmosphere, she quickly learned her father’s impressive blues and soul record collection, grabbed his guitar and started playing at the age of fifteen. Since then, Ana has developed into an phenomenal guitarist/vocalist with a growing legion of fans throughout the world.

Ana and her powerful band are tirelessly touring, playing major blues, jazz and rock festivals. She is endorsed by Fender, D'Angelico, Jim Dunlop and DR strings. Ana has shared headlining stages with B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Joe Bonamassa, Gary Clark Jr. and many others. She’s nominated for six Blues Music Awards, appeared on the cover of Vintage Guitar and Guitar Player magazine. Her albums Can You Stand The Heat (2013) and Unconditional (2011) where Pick-Of-The-Week by USA Today and featured on NPR Music. Nearly all of Ana's albums made it the Top 5 of the Billboard Blues Charts and are being played regularly on US radio.

“Ana Popovic is one helluva a guitar-player.”

- Bruce Springsteen

“Ana rocks the blues in fine, fine fashion.“

Christone “Kingfish” Ingram

Christone "Kingfish" Ingram's love of music grew from the rich Gospel sounds emanating from his family's church and the Blues music he regularly heard played in his Delta neighborhood. A cousin to legendary Country music great, Charlie Pride and trained at the Delta Blues Museum under the tutelage of Daddy Rich and Bill Howl-N-Madd Perry, Kingfish undoubtedly has music in his soul.

At the tender age of 6, Kingfish began playing the drums. Three years later, he took up the bass guitar. By the age of 13, he began playing lead guitar. Soon he was fluent in all three instruments and quickly added smooth vocals to his musical repertoire.

Kingfish's guitar influences run the gamut from the Delta Blues of Robert Johnson, Elmore James, Muddy Waters, and Lightnin' Hopkins to the electric Blues of B.B. King, Big Jack Johnson, Lefty Dizz, Albert King and Buddy Guy to the Rock of Jimi Hendrix, Prince and Eddie Hazel. Not only can Kingfish play in the styling of his idols and mentors, but he also has an amazing ability to create guitar sounds entirely his own.

Through his young career, Kingfish has shared the stage with legendary names such as Bob Margolin, Eric Gales, Rick Derringer, Guitar Shorty, Buddy Guy and many more. He has played music festivals and venues all over the U.S. and has performed internationally in several countries. He's been a guest on the Rachael Ray Show and the Steve Harvey Show. Kingfish even performed at The White House for First Lady Michelle Obama.

After graduating high school in May 2017, Kingfish is now prepared to release his highly anticipated debut album in early 2018.
