MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Aug. 23, 2022 - PRLog -- Blue Heart Records is pleased to announce the signing of 2019 International Blues Challenge finalists Jennifer Milligan and Pasqual Fouquet, aka Lil' Red and The Rooster.  A deep calling led them both to the Blues, and the Blues brought them together in 2010. For over a decade, Jen "Lil' Red" Milligan and Pascal "The Rooster" Fouquet have been fine-tuning their style while living and breathing their music.  Born in Normandy, France in the early 60's, The Rooster began studying classical guitar at eleven and has been a professional musician since 1980.  Lil' Red, born in Columbus, Ohio in the late 60's, studied all the artistic disciplines: music, dance, acting, writing, painting, martial arts and meditation. She holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and an MFA in Contemporary Performance from Naropa University.

For their sophomore album, the duo assembled a GRAMMY-winning dream team including engineer Blaise Barton (Joyride Studio), Kenny "Beedy Eyes" Smith on drums and Felton Crews on bass.  The title track, "Keep On Lovin' You," features Blues Hall of Famer Billy Branch on vocals and harmonica.  The entire collection presents Lil' Red's message of the power of love in their self-described retro modern blues signature style.

"The authenticity of Lil' Red and The Rooster's music is refreshing and delivered with a purity devoid of excessive fills or effects.  We are proud to be working with such a dynamic musical duo, and look forward to sharing the 'retro modern blues' sound of their sophomore release," says Blue Heart Records label partner, Sallie Bengtson.

"When Betsie and Sallie said they liked our retro cover art, we knew this was going to be a yummy mash-up," says Lil' Red. "We're thrilled to be working with these vibrant women and know our new album is in good hands with Blue Heart Records."

Album preorders begin on September 23. For additional information, visit and follow on Facebook and Instagram @LilRedandtheRooster.
