Story:
A 3-day road trip from Santa Monica Pier to Wrigleyville, careening down the length of Route 66 writing songs about whiskey, sex, cheap motels, and coffee, led acoustic duo Sugar Still out on an endless coast-to-coast tour in support of their debut album Balance (June 2015), their holiday EP Sugar and Spice (Nov. 2015), and now their 3rd studio album Go (March 2017). Conservatory-trained violinist/vocalist Sarah Blick and acclaimed roots singer-songwriter Charlie Cheney perform lively, poignant originals and contemporary covers filled with rocking guitar riffs, swinging blue violin, and beautiful vocal harmonies reminiscent of It’s a Beautiful Day, Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, Civil Wars, and Jefferson Airplane

Sugar Still performed over 80 shows in 2015 in the midwest, and over 150 shows in 2016 in 26 states and Canada. California native Sarah Blick is a graduate of conservatory training in Classical violin from the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, and is a busy studio session musician and live performer in a long list of Chicago bands. Charlie Cheney is a prolific performing songwriter with over 1000 songs to his credit with artists as diverse as Jackson Browne, Victoria Williams, pAt mAcdonald, members of Living Colour, Little Feat, Jane’s Addiction, and Nine Inch Nails, and has toured 49 states and Europe. Together Blick and Cheney have an undeniable musical energy and stage chemistry.
