Montrose Records announces the signing of Houston-based blues/soul singer Annika Chambers and will release her debut album, Making My Mark, on January 14, 2014.

Making My Mark will be available through CDBaby at iTunes and Amazon, as well as at the label's website. On the new CD, Annika (pronounced "Ann-NEE-Ka"), is backed by an aggregation dubbed "The Houston All-Stars," well-named because it boasts the talents of many Grammy winners and nominees.

Heading that list is bassist Larry Fulcher, who co-produced
Making My Mark along with Montrose Records owner/engineer Richard Cagle. Fulcher is a two-time Grammy winner for his work with Taj Mahal on the albums "Shoutin' in Key" and "Senor Blues," and has appeared on 10 of Taj's albums. He's also a regular member of the acclaimed Phantom Blues Band and has  recorded and/or toured with such other renowned performers as Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Maria Muldaur, Willie Nelson, Ruthie Foster, Curtis Salgado, The Crusaders, Smokey Robinson and The Wailers.
