Dubbed the “Queen of Steam” for her soulful vocals and energetic stage presence, Lundeen and her band blend classic roadhouse rhythm & blues, jump swing, Memphis groove, sultry jazz, and funky soul into a satisfying musical stew. She's shared stages with blues-rock heavies such as John Lee Hooker, Savoy Brown, Elvin Bishop, Tommy Castro, and more.
Lundeen has frequently been nominated Best Blues at the San Diego Music Awards. Her debut full-length Song Inside Me was nominated Best Blues Album at the 2005 SDMAs, and one of the final four Best Self-Produced CDs at the Blues Foundation’s Int’l Blues Challenge (IBC). She and her band also won Blues Lovers United of San Diego’s Regional IBC in 2001, scoring the chance to represent San Diego at IBC in Memphis, TN.
Describing her strangest stage moment, Lundeen says “I had some guy literally crawl across the floor to eat a dog biscuit out of my hand when I was performing one of my heartwarming originals, ‘I Need a Dog.’ I was really just teasing, and there he was on his hands and knees, barking and growling. Lawd, have mercy.”
Lundeen toured Holland in March 2017.
