The group has been praised for their sassy, sibling folk music with amazing vocal harmonies, reminiscent of the Andrews Sisters.

The sextet blends inventive songwriting and creative covers into a scintillating blend of Folk, Americana, Gospel, R&B and Bluegrass that is simultaneously modern and timeless.

Pleasing crowds from Merlefest to the Strawberry and High Sierra Festivals, they been hailed as one of 16 artists to watch in 2016.

The sisters, Erika, Rachel and Chloe are based in Oakland and have been singing together and writing songs since childhood. In the past several years, they ‘ve performed with, or opened for, Amos Lee, Todd Rundgren and Laurie Lewis and many others.

In addition to the festivals noted above, they’ve also performed at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, the Americana Music Association Festival and on Garrison Keillor’s NPR show, “A Prairie Home Companion.”
