Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Cera Impala is a banjo-wielding mama who oozes wild style. Her voice is both unique and timeless, and her writing style just as magical. She creates songs that feel instantly familiar. Cera performs with her hand-picked band, The New Prohibition, featuring the talents of Joel Sanderson on double bass and Dr. Dirk Ronneburg on fiddle.
A slice of hillbilly noir, and a measure of gritty 20’s and 30’s jazz, they have one foot in the past and the other in the future of folk, jazz and americana. Dirk, her husband and long-time musical partner, is a fiddle-blazer of the highest degree; he also plays with gypsy jazzers Viper Swing and was a fiddler in the folk super-group Southern Tenant Folk Union. The blues are deep in his heart and he shines through in every note he plays. The synergy between them is palpable, she insists she met Dirk in a dream before meeting him in real life. It’s more than plausible – their music is in indeed otherworldly.
