The San Diego-based Little Hurricane, a self-described “dirty blues” duo eager to explore beyond the genre that intrigued them when they first came together in 2010, celebrated the release of their third studio album Same Sun Same Moon last Friday, April 14. Recorded in multiple locations throughout California by bandmates Anthony “Tone” Catalano and Celeste “C.C.” Spina, Same Sun Same Moon depicts a new era for the two-piece, with Tone and C.C. recording every instrument themselves and diving into deeper lyrical themes than those on previous albums. Days before the album’s release, Blues Rock Review called Tone to discuss the band’s near-annual success at the San Diego Music Awards, the amusing anecdote behind early fan favorite “Bad Business” and how best to approach the new material.
Little Hurricane, big impact. The two-piece rock outfit from San Diego, California celebrates the release of their third album Same Sun Same Moon on April 14, a studio effort that continues the duo’s tradition of maintaining a full-band sound and shows lyrical and musical growth since their last release in 2014. Let’s take a step back: odds are good you’ve heard whisperings about Little Hurricane, if you haven’t already seen them in person (they’re on the road a lot: their gig history includes performances at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and four years of South by Southwest, with a hometown appearance at the second annual Kaaboo coming up this September). Last fall, Little Hurricane signed to Mascot Label Group, the label that’s home to Beth Hart, Eric Gales and Walter Trout, among others. Though recently tagged as the new notable husband-and-wife duo of the blues-inspired rock world, bandmates Anthony “Tone” Catalano and Celeste “C.C.” Spina resist the White Stripes comparisons and insist that their work is – and has always been – first, foremost and only about the music.
