Ghalia Volt

New Orleans-via-Belgium garage-blues artist/rock and roller Ghalia Volt made a pilgrimage to Joshua Tree, CA to make new album Shout Sister Shout! (out October 6 via Ruf Records). Producer and Queens of the Stone Age collaborator David Catching welcomed her to Rancho De La Luna, also the site of recordings by Iggy Pop, Arctic Monkeys, Foo Fighters, and PJ Harvey.


Never underestimate the power of a woman with her back against the wall. In March 2020, as Covid blew across the planet, the shutters came down on live venues and recording studios, and the music scene fell suddenly silent, Ghalia Volt faced the same dilemma as every other artist. What now? The answer was One Woman Band.


You can't miss Ghalia Volt. She's a natural-born rockstar complete with leather jacket and wicked grin. Ghalia has been honing her blend of Americana blues since she was discovered while busking on the streets of Brussels. Her latest effort, Mississippi Blend, finds her delving deep into the American South,, recording at the famed Zebra Ranch in the Hill Country of Mississippi.
