The Pitch: You get pegged as a blues band a lot, which is a very specific genre. Do you think you play the blues?
Wennerstrom: No, I never thought we were a blues band. I think that because we're on Fat Possum, people just assume. People feel that they have to associate us with the blues thing it's bluesy this or bluesy that. Of course, there is some influence, but for the most part, I think that people use that term a little too much to describe us.
A lot of reviewers point out that you're blond and petite. Has your appearance been overemphasized?
I think that most people do sort of say the shy, petite thing because my voice is so big. People are shocked by that. It's a lot lower and huskier, which is associated with people with bigger rib cages. You know, so that more air gets in and wait, what was the question? Sometimes I get sidetracked.
