Rondale & Raul
Born on the bayou, Rondale was raised in the backwater town of Bayou La Batre , Alabama. A descendent of rich musical talent, she started playing the guitar and singing as a child in church. As a young musician she played at Nashville's Blue Bird Cafe, a popular club for up and coming musicians and songwriters. In her early twenties Rondale, and her sister Dorothy, the owner and publisher of Gumbo Woman Music, played weekends in many local establishments. Dorothy not only sings with the band, but is also a songwriter. She has written on several songs with Rondale and also with Shelby Lynn and Bill Bottrell on the album "I am Shelby Lynn". The band Rondale and the Kit Katz grew out of the sister's travels and they frequently play the Gulf Coast scene.
