Sena Ehrhardt has emerged as one of the freshest and most dynamic emerging young voices on the blues scene today. As the buzz about her incendiary performances at clubs and festivals spreads, heavyweight acts have begun to take notice. She’s been invited to open concerts for B.B. King, ZZ Top, Robert Cray, Dickey Betts, Johnny Winter and Gregg Allman. Her latest release, Live My Life, further confirms Sena’s ascendance to blues elite status.
Cole Allen, critically acclaimed solo artist and guitarist for the Sena Ehrhardt Band, is without a doubt one of the most exciting up-and-coming singer/guitarist/songwriters of contemporary blues and rock music. Cole Allen’s songwriting, described by many as mature well beyond his years, and masterful guitar playing was showcased on his debut 2012 EP “Headed For Hollywood.” The blues-rock scene took notice. “Cole embodies the definition of a unique talent with the major ‘It’ factor that can’t be bought, taught or obtained in any manner other than simply being born with a musical gift that touches his fans deep in their hearts and souls.” (Legendary Rock Interviews)
Following the rave reviews of his EP, Allen released a full length self-titled album of originals in 2013, pushing him further on to the National blues-rock scene. Immediately following the release, Allen debuted music videos for the rocker “Let Me Know” and love song “You Can Have My Heart” revealing his expansive songwriting talent and model good looks. Blues Rock Review magazine selected a cut (I’m Gone) from this album for their Best of 2013 album sampler stating that he is “Sure to deliver what any blues-rock fan yearns for!”
That same year he was asked to join award-winning Blind Pig Records recording artist Sena Ehrhardt’s band as the lead guitarist. Cole and Sena’s explosive chemistry in both live performances and songwriting
