Blues musicians Andra Faye and Scott Ballantine are native Hoosiers and honed their musical skills in the capitol city of Indianapolis.

Faye is known for her strong vocals and being a multi-instrumentalist. She's been featured on the cover of Mandolin Magazine, called the “First Lady of the Blues Mandolin” and has been nominated twice for Blues Music Awards as an instrumentalist.

Her love for the blues took her on a journey away from Indiana when she joined the band Saffire – The Uppity Blues Women. They toured for 17 years until their retirement in 2009.

In 2011, she formed a band called Andra Faye & The Rays, and then began playing as a duo with Ballantine in 2012.

Ballantine is known for his guitar skills and having the best vintage guitar shops. He also established the band The Strugglers in the 1970s.

He's a teacher and a jazz, country, blues and roots guitarist who's equally at home on acoustic or electric guitar. Known as a “guitar player’s guitar player,” Ballantine is adept playing solo shows or leading bands.

The duo released their first independent CD in 2013, Laying Down Our Blues, to great acclaim, and their second recording, Coulda Woulda Shoulda, was released in 2015. It was nominated for a 2016 Blues Blast Award for Best Acoustic Blues CD.

Faye and Ballantine perform and teach in Indianapolis, tour regionally and nationally, and are in demand as instructors for music workshops across the country. They were voted Best Local Blues Act for 2015 and 2016 by NUVO Magazine’s Best of Indy Readers’ Choice Awards.
