T Sisters

Oaksong Society for the Preservation of Way Cool Music presents The T Sisters in concert at Pilgrim Congregational Church, 2850 Foothill Blvd., Redding CA on Friday, February 6, 2015 at 8 PM.

The T Sisters had their debut performance in Redding last August, opening for John Amos at the Cascade Theater. In their short set, they wowed the audience with their boundless energy and engaging harmonies, and promised to return with a full show on February 6. The T Sisters are an authentic family band based out of Oakland, California. Rachel (vocals, guitar and banjo), Chloe (vocals) and Erika Tietjen (vocals, guitar) are all songwriters and switch off on lead vocals, singing and writing style. The combination results in an eclectic repertoire unified by a landscape of close harmonies. The group’s subtle throwback aesthetic calls to mind classic trios past, from the Andrews Sisters and 1960s girl-groups to the sirens from the film O Brother , Where Art Though? Anchored by influences spanning folk, country, gospel, klezmer and early- ‘90s R&B, each sister brings a unique vocal and lyrical style to a sound that is at once modern and timeless.

The T Sisters continue to expand their presence on the Northern California roots scene, whether accompanied by a full band or nothing more than acoustic instruments and their own body percussion. They’ve supported, and in some cases lent vocals to, The California Honeydrops, The Brothers Comatose, The Waybacks, Elephant Revival, Hot Buttered Rum, and their mentor, bluegrass legend Laurie Lewis, who recently produced their debut album, Kindred Lines. In July 2014, they sang at the memorial service for comedy legend Harold Ramis in Hollywood, and in September, sang the national anthem at a San Francisco Giants game.
