So what do you do if you are three outstanding musicians, siblings, working together and no one seems to know how to pronounce your family name? If you were at Live Oak 2016 (or are just a very savvy follower of the Bay area music scene), it is likely you know the answer. How about just calling yourselves: “T Sisters”!
And that is exactly what Erika, Rachel and Chloe Tietjen did. At the heart of a creative renaissance taking shape in Oakland, California, the T Sisters have put their community and their indie-Americana music on the map. Since even before their Live Oak concert, these sisters have been on our radar with more than just their great harmonies. Taking things from decades past like the washboard, the banjo and bluegrass themes; turning them all around and making them their very own; has brought the T Sisters to the attention of many. We all continue listening.
Along with their 2014 debut release, Kindred Lines (produced by celebrated bluegrass musician Laurie Lewis), the T Sisters have recently released their self-titled sophomore studio effort. This most recent album, inspired by many American folk traditions, also embodies a fresh and contemporary sound with inflections of pop, R&B/soul and country.
Beyond their Oakland roots Erika, Rachel and Chloe came to national recognition with a performance on A Prairie Home Companion. The T Sisters’ awe-inspiring harmonies have impressed many prominent artists, leading to onstage collaborations with the likes of Amos Lee, Jim Lauderdale, and The Wood Brothers. They have also been returning artists at least three years in a row at San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival.
The sisters tap into ageless traditions, encompassing the deep roots of sibling song-making and harmonizing. From The Andrews Sisters, The Roches and The Everly Brothers, it has worked for generations. It works for these three and on June 1st at Música Del Río it will also be working for you.
