The new CD "Short Stay" is here. Patti Spadaro and Stefana Dadas share the lead vocal responsibilities on this new release. Stefana's unique and passionate style has been compared to Melissa Etheridge and Janis Joplin. The CD combines bluesy syncopated rhythms with plenty of ripping guitar solos and improvisation. All tunes are written by Patti, she plays all the guitar tracks, and sings lead on "Give a Little Back" and "Watch it Fly"; and Stefana sings lead on everything else. The band features Chuck Schmedeke on drums, Nate Tshetter on keyboards, Gary Geiser on bass, and Karen Schmedeke on back-up vocals. Patti produced the CD, while Nate Tshetter engineered and mixed at Glue the Moose Studios in Laguna Hills, CA.
