From the Upstage web site:

Alice Stuart blazed the trail for women in Rock and Roll as one of the only females in the country to write her own music, front a male band and play lead guitar on national and international circuits during the 1970s. Blues Hall of Fame inductee Dick Waterman once remarked, "There would be no Bonnie Raitt without Alice Stuart." According to Taj Mahal, "Alice cut the road that Bonnie traveled." Over the past decade, Alice and her band have been awarded 'Best Band,' 'Best Guitar,' and 'Best Songwriter.'

In 1966, Stuart joined a revolution when she teamed with Frank Zappa during the formation of Mothers of Invention and then moved on to form Alice Stuart and Snake. Stuart toured the U.S. and Europe with Van Morrison, Commander Cody, Michael Bloomfield and John Prine. She recorded with Jerry Garcia, John Hammond, Richard Greene, Elvin Bishop, Dave Mason, Sonny Terry and Tower of Power.

“Alice Stuart came before her time. Years before the wave of brash young female rockers such as Chrissy Hynde, Pat Benatar, Suzi Quatro and a dozen others were providing the hottest action in the record business, Alice was playing a rock 'n' roll Stratocaster in front of an all-male band.” And she continues today winning awards with her remarkable signature voice.
