Both Flores and Brom have had illustrious careers. Born in San Antonio, Flores cut her teeth in the same Southern California roots-rock scene that sired Los Lobos, the Blasters and Dwight Yoakam, and her 1987 Pete Anderson-produced debut remains a classic of that time and place. A potent guitarist and songwriter, Flores is equally at home playing with alt-country renegades like Jon Langford as she is performing with traditionalists like Ray Campi.

Brom, a native of St. Louis, has been recording since the late '90s, and while her voice is often (and rightly) compared to Patsy Cline, she has the interpretive muscle to tackle girl-group pop, raunchy rhythm 'n' blues and straight-ahead honky tonk with a sexy growl and flair for rock 'n' roll drama.

Backed up by the Rivetors -- and currently touring as a tribute to the late Janis Martin, a rockabilly pioneer Flores produced and championed -- Flores and Brom give this Live at KDHX session their very best. They swing and shake through the rockabilly standard "Wild One (Real Wild Child)" and make plenty of room for a guitar workout on "Walk Softly on This Heart of Mine," written by Bill Monroe, and like "Wild One," memorably covered by Martin. For a final song, Flores pays one more tribute: On "Yeah Yeah" she invokes the spirit of her friend, the late guitarist and songwriter Duane Jarvis.
