If you were around in their heyday, the Ace of Cups are already legends. San Francisco's first all-female rock band opened for Jimi Hendrix and were friends with the Grateful Dead.

From 1967 to 1970, Ace of Cups — Mary Gannon (Bass), Marla Hunt (Organ, Piano), Denise Kaufman (Guitar, Harmonica), Mary Ellen Simpson (Lead Guitar), and Diane Vitalich (Drums) — were at the epicenter of the ‘60s cultural and social revolution. From the Acid Tests to the protests, from the free concerts in Golden Gate Park to the ballrooms of San Francisco, they shared stages with everyone from The Band to the Grateful Dead.

Michael Bloomfield, Jerry Garcia, and Buddy Miles were their fans and the Ace were chosen to open for Jimi Hendrix the week after his groundbreaking performance at The Monterey Pop Festival. When asked by Melody Maker magazine to name his favorite musical discoveries on his U.S. trip, the Ace of Cups was the first thing he mentioned.

Ace Of Cups blends pure rock, folk, blues and gospel influences with a pop sensibility and a garage band rush; all tinted by an intoxicating psychedelic sheen. This is the first release from the Ace of Cups project. Volume Two — coming in 2019 — includes 20 more songs from the band, as well as contributions from Jackson Browne, Wavy Gravy, Sheila E and the Escovedo Family, Bakithi Kumalo (Paul Simon), and more.
