AMAZING HEEBY JEEBIES was born in the back seat of a '63 Caddy tearing down Highway 41. Amazing Ary and Earl "Wolfdaddy" knew they had created something that could be a sinners delight. Neighbors curiosity grew hearing the two bang out what became the foundation of AMAZING HEEBY JEEBIES.
Chicago Artist Ary started painting at a young age..but visual art was just not enough. When she turned 21, she became a regular fixture lurking in the shadows of the hippest live music shows mingling with international party girls, hep cats & kittens...now cutting her teeth as a musician/songwriter/performer, taking souls & rockin' bones on stage for the first time...raawwwr! This petite bad girl packs a powerful vocal punch like nobody's business. Her live performances show her provocative but sweet style, invoking artists from past and present, from blues to punk, hell raisin' rock n roll with a twist and shake of vintage kitsch.
