RISING FOLK BAND
THE T SISTERS
TO HEADLINE AT THE MINT LA!
LOS ANGELES, CA (July 24, 2015) Rising California folk band The T Sisters (Erika, Rachel and Chloe Tietjen) are excited to return to Los Angeles to headline at The Mint. This show follows a successful performance at The Troubadour in February 2015 supporting ALO. Tickets are now on sale for this special evening of music on Sunday, August 30th.
Since their last performance in Los Angeles, the T Sisters have performed at a host of summer music festivals including Kate Wolf Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Lucidity Festival and LA local festival the Topanga Banjo Fiddle Contest. In addition to performances of their own music they have recently collaborated with ALO, members of The Wood Brothers, Eric McFadden, members of Umphrey’s McGee, Amos Lee and many more. They began 2015 with a performance on A Prairie Home Companion and shortly thereafter had the honor of performing at San Francisco’s legendary venue The Fillmore.
“As a snappy stage moniker the T Sisters makes perfect sense for Erika, Rachel and Chloe Tietjen, who perform together as an irresistibly joyful sibling combo steeped in American roots music. But given their far-ranging creative proclivities, they could be more accurately described as the A to Z Sisters.” (Andrew Gilbert, The Mercury)
“The T Sisters achieve an impeccable vocal blend here that’s applied to a batch of (mostly) self-written tunes brimming with folksy wisdom and youthful spirit. That siblings Erika, Rachel, and Chloe Tietjen sound like they were born to harmonize is no surprise. What might not be expected is that Kindred Lines boasts considerable songwriting chops, combining folk, blues, swing, and gospel elements in fresh ways.” (Official itunes review)
About The T Sisters:
The T Sisters are a sassy sister folk band hailing from Oakland, California. The three sisters, Erika (eldest) and Rachel and Chloe (twins), who live together in a warehouse with their ferocious terrier, embody sibling harmony. While their voices blend seamlessly, each has a distinct singing and writing style. Erika, the eldest sister, weaves a story with attitude and will belt it out with the confidence and style of a jazz diva. Rachel’s soulful and raw style is highlighted in her vintage blues-inspired tunes. Chloe sings her heartfelt and poetic lyrics in a subtle country vibrato. The combination results in a very eclectic repertoire unified by a landscape of close harmonies.
The three sisters’ inventive songwriting is supported by their own acoustic instrumentation as well as by upright bassist Steve Height and mandolinist/guitar player Andrew Allen Fahlander. When performing their lively set of originals and covers—occasionally in arresting a cappella–they captivate audiences with tight harmonies, creative arrangements, and sassy performance style. Touching on elements of folk, Americana, gospel, R&B, bluegrass and soul, the T Sisters weave evocative stories with a sound that is at once modern and timeless.
The T Sisters will perform at The Mint on Sunday, August 30th with support from Los Angeles locals Rocko Wheeler and We the Folk. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show begins at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door. For additional information on the T Sisters, visit www.tsisters.com.
