Singer/songwriter Willa Vincitore (formerly McCarthy) has been building a fan base across the Hudson Valley for nearly two decades. While her songwriting is an eclectic mix of blues, soul, rock, funk and (occasionally) pop, there’s one thing that ties it all together: that voice. Before launching her own band, she was an original member of the award-winning Chris O'Leary Band.

Willa’s debut CD, “Better Days,” will be released in January 2017 and showcases both her songwriting skill and vocal range. Nick Delay, host of the Big Blues Kitchen blues show on WVKR since 1996, notes that “...Willa shows complete command of her instrument … This is an album that should propel her to the attention of audiences far beyond the blues incubator that is the Hudson Valley.”

If you’re a fan of Susan Tedeschi, Shemekia Copeland and Bonnie Raitt, you’ll likely dig Willa. Fans have described her performances as "powerful," "soulful" and "empowering,” and have often compared her to those three with a twist of Joplin thrown in for good measure. She’ll be joined on stage by Chris Vitarello & Pete Hop on guitars, Scott Milici on keys, BJ Marchini on drums, Doug Abramson on bass, Ron Knittle on sax and Jim Osborne on trumpet.
