Nora Jean: Nora Jean Bruso (now Nora Jean Wallace) is a Chicago Blues singer with deep Delta roots. Like so many blues greats that hail from the Delta of Mississippi, Nora Jean Bruso was born and raised in Greenwood, a town in the heart of this blues-rich region. From birth her father, Bobby Lee Wallace, a professional blues singer and sharecropper, and her Uncle, Henry “Son” Wallace, a blues singer and guitar player, infused the blues in her soul. Also contributing to her musical education was her mother, Ida Lee Wallace, a gospel singer, and her grandmother, Mary, who ran a juke house. As a child Nora would sneak down to her grandmother’s place on Friday and Saturday nights and listen to her relatives sing blues classics. It was during these years that Nora developed a love for the music of Howlin’ Wolf that has continued to the present day.
Brian Lupo: Guitarist, Brian Lupo, was born on the northwest side of Chicago on November 18, 1976. A graduate of Notre Dame High School, Lupo (who had always been a fan of rock and roll – especially, The Allman Brothers Band) was a late bloomer when it came to playing blues guitar. In fact, he did not pick up the instrument until 1996 (at the age of 20). Still, once he picked up that first Fender Stratocaster, he would rarely be seen without it again. He spent the next 5 years wood-shedding intensely and honing his unique sound. He immersed himself in the classic recordings of artists such as Muddy Waters and B.B. King. When he finally did come up for air, he found himself a much sought after sideman for some of the most popular singers on Chicago’s hard-scrabble west side. More about Brian...
