Despite living on opposite sides of the world, Lucy, Ari, and Mia think of themselves as musical soulmates. They each grew up in families of three sisters who, together with their parents, sang and played music, sharing the same love for quirky melodies, intricate arrangements, and three-part harmonies.
Lucy Wise is a Melbourne-based multi-instrumentalist and singer who has been described as “a natural storyteller, infusing songs with a sense of place so strong you can almost feel the dusty earth crunch beneath your feet as she sings” (The Brag).
Raised on folk songs and conservatory trained, Ari & Mia's voices, cello, fiddle, and banjo intricately combine in original melodies and arrangements that reference the early American songbook and Northeastern fiddle tunes. “Strikingly beautiful, distinctive and exhilarating, with expressive vocals that will find a way into hearts and minds” (No Depression), the duo creates a realm where their own compositions cross paths with older traditions.
