From 1967-1972 Ace of Cups shared billing with Jimi Hendrix, The Band, Grateful Dead, and Mike Bloomfield, to name just a few. The all-girl group was smack dab in the middle of the psychedelic Haight-Ashbury scene.

Last year, more than 50 years after getting together, the band released its full-length debut studio album to widespread critical acclaim, including features on NPR All Things Considered and CBS This Morning. The album was produced by Dan Shea (Mariah Carey, Santana, Jennifer Lopez) and features contributions from long-time friends of the band, including Bob Weir (Grateful Dead), Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady (Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna), Taj Mahal, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Peter Coyote, and Steve Kimock.  

But it’s not just about the old days with Ace of Cups. The group has a new album coming out this summer and the list of contributing writers and musicians (including Bob Weir) reads like a wall at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
