Sena Ehrhardt's second Blind Pig release is a combination of soulful, roots-oriented music that incorporates blues-rock, reggae, soul-blues, and funk. The influence of multi-Grammy-award winner Jim Gaines, who has worked with numerous rock and blues performers, definitely made a difference in utilizing and combining the eclectic mixture without losing the identity of the band -- Steve Hansen on bass, Tim Hasler on drums, and Sena's father, Ed Ehrhardt, on guitar. Seven of the songs on All In were written by Sena and her father, including the reflective closing track "Dreamin' or Dyin.'" Also of special note among the 11 tunes are the cover versions of Solomon Burke's "Cry to Me" and "Cold Cold Feeling," originally recorded by T-Bone Walker.
