Additional Info:
You could call the Show Ponies a folk outfit, but you might be wrong.  Then again,you might be right.  Fusing a plethora of musical and literary influences, the ShowPonies have created for themselves a sound.  It’s not altogether definable, but theylike it that way, says Jason Harris, the groups guitarist and producer, “In the past I’vefound that once you’ve put yourself in a box, it’s really difficult to get the hell out.”This year alone, the Los Angeles-based quintet have opened for the likes of Billboardchart mainstays Rascal Flatts and Easton Corbin; Texas country legend Robert EarlKeen and darlings of the folk music blogosphere, Elephant Revival.  Add to that arigorous touring schedule and the upcoming release of their third record, and awildly dedicated, evangelical fan base, and you might conclude that the Show Poniesare having a pretty good time, to say the least.A completely crowd-funded band, the Show Ponies just recently finished a crowd-funding campaign in which their fans helped them raise over double their initialgoal, to the tune of $21,000.  The resulting upcoming release, a five song EP entitled,“Run For Your Life,” which features two collaborations with virtuosic banjoist andworld-class musician, Noam Pikelny, was released in October of 2014.

*************************

The T Sisters, born and raised in California and now based in the creative hub of Oakland, embody harmony. It’s in their blood, bones, and history. Erika, Rachel and Chloe have been singing and writing music together since childhood, and the lifetime of practice shows.

The three sisters’ inventive songwriting is supported by their own acoustic instrumentation as well as upright bass (Steve Height), mandolin/guitar (Andrew Allen Fahlander), and drums. Their sound represents a continuum of music, from traditional to pop influences, moments of breathtaking a cappella to swells of energetic indie Americana.

In the last two years, they’ve been honored to support such acts as Amos Lee, Todd Rundgren, The Waybacks, Laurie Lewis, ALO, Elephant Revival, The California Honeydrops, and more. Notable performances include Merlefest, Kate Wolf Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass (support role), Sisters Folk Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, Americana Music Association Festival, Music City Roots, and Garrison Keillor’s ‘A Prairie Home Companion’.

In 2014, the T Sisters released their debut full-length album Kindred Lines under the production of folk/bluegrass legend Laurie Lewis, and they look forward to the release of their new full-length album recorded at the legendary Barefoot Studios in LA in 2016.
