Laurie Jane and The 45's are a band of best friends, brothers, and a husband and wife. Their sound is a melting pot of 1950's big city electric blues with the high energy sounds of early rockabilly and soul. Laurie Jane's jazz influenced vocals, sincere and restrained, float across the churning depths of Cort Duggins' twelve-string slide guitar and deep blues picking. Jason Embry's upright bass and Scott Dugdale's drums lay down raucous swinging back beats.
Their first record (self-entitled) was a throwback to 50s-60s Chicago blues. Midnight Jubliee builds on that effort yet branching off to include touches of all their influences to deliver a record accessible to music lovers of many genres.
