"The three ladies form a harmony that blends quite well...a nice new effort from the Hot Flashes."
~~ Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine


The Hot Flashes are an exciting and eclectic group fronted by three female vocalists who have made a name for themselves on the New England music scene showcasing their tight vocal harmonies and jazzy acoustic stylings The Flashes are Amy Gallatin, who with her expressive soulful singing has made a name for
herself both in North America and overseas, award-winning singer-songwriter/guitarist Gail Wade, and multi-instrumentalist Peggy Harvey, founding member of
the legendary bluegrass group Traver Hollow.

Peggy was a guest fiddler in Amy’s band Stillwaters for many years and adds sass and grit to the Hot Flash sound with her stellar soprano sax and harmonica playing. Amy and Gail were drawn together by their mutual love of horses and the Western life. All three share a passion for acoustic music, and together they have amassed a wealth of beautifully performed tunes drawn from the bluegrass, folk, swing, jazz, and blues genres, with a few cowgirl and traditional tunes thrown in for good measure.

Backed by the solid chops of mandolinist JD Williams, Dobro veteran Roger Williams—both from Gallatin’s band Stillwaters--and bassist John Urbanik, the instrumentation also includes the occasional clawhammer banjo. As a group, these six veteran musicians meld their collective experiences, voices and instruments into a unique and rousing musical experience.

In this project the selections range from jaunty numbers made famous by Louis Jordan, Johnny Mercer, and Ella Mae Morse, to country weepers from Hank Williams, the Louvin Brothers and Kitty Wells, as well as pop favorites from Carole King and Linda Ronstadt, and finally to the haunting traditional tune The Water is Wide. In each song The Flashes fuse their three distinct voices into one harmonious musical element.

The songs:

1) Blue Love (in My Heart) (3:23)
2) Choo Choo Ch’Boogie (3:09)
3) Blue Bayou (4:18)
4) If I Could Only Win Your Love (2:37)
5) Honky Tonk Blues (2:51)
6) That Makes One of Us (3:19)
7) Those Memories of You (4:14)
8) Timberline (3:36)
9) Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow (3:54)
10) Cow Cow Boogie (3:35)
11) Making Believe (3:46)
12) I’m an Old Cowhand (From the Rio Grande) (3:24)
13) The Water is Wide (5:15)
14) Walk Softly on This Heart of Mine (5:52)
