The most appealing thing about this San Francisco-based, all-female group is its range. Blame Sally's folk sound comes through on its cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Never Going Back Again," but the band also mixes rock, blues, country and funk.

On Blame Sally's newest album, Speeding Ticket and a Valentine, you can easily find yourself rocking out to "Living Without You" one minute, grooving to a funky song like "Wide Open Spaces" the next minute, and then twanging out to "Big Big Bed."

Blame Sally's background gives the band a rich sound that's hard to categorize. Singer-songwriter Monica Pasqual is a classically trained pianist. Guitarist and bassist Renee Harcort has musical roots influenced by her jazz-pianist father. Jeri Jones, also a guitarist and bassist, played in country, funk and folk bands. Drummer Pam Delgado brings her love of pop music and her R&B vocals. She also adds a Latin edge in songs like "Parjaros Sin Alas." Blame Sally's complimentary styles and blend of genres keeps you captivated, so it's no surprise that the Speeding Ticket and a Valentine album debuted on the Billboard's Heatseekers chart of up-and-coming bands.
