(Vocals, b. 1945)

This raw-edged songstress emerged from the same Austin, Texas scene that yielded Stevie Ray Vaughan, with her 1986 debut Stranger Blues. Strehli, who was born in Lubbock, perfected her slow phrasing and dynamic attack at the famed Antone’s nightclub, learning from visiting artists Muddy Waters, Otis Rush, Albert Collins and Albert King. She helped to start the influential Antone’s record label. In recent years Strehli has incorporated more 1940s and 1950s R&B influences into her music.
