Modern Vintage Recordings artists and NPR darlings, Sisters 3, have released their sophomore album, Coruscate at the Meadow Gate. An eclectic mix of folk, three part harmonies, and avant garde songwriting, the album has been received extremely well earning them spots performing with CBS Recording Artist Sharon Little at Madison Square Garden and The Mann Center and appearing on Good Day New York and several times live on XPN radio. They've been featured on the NBC show "Tens" twice and have been featured in the pages of Singer Songwriter Magazine, Relix and CMJ. They have performed at NXNE, CMJ, Philadelphia Folk Fest, International Folk Alliance, and Mountain Stage.
Sisters Cassandra, Anna Christie and Beatrice Sadler have performed together in various incarnations since childhood and officially formed Sisters 3 in August 2005. Three years later, the trio released their acclaimed debut album Star Spangled. Having been brought up in an colorful household of eight sisters, all home schooled, the girls nurtured their creative side and matured in a whimsical and magical fantasy land of their creation. The flavor of the album reflects exactly that- three women connected to each other in a very childlike fashion- laughing during a harmonic version of Miss Mary Mack, a hidden gem on the album.
"It's been a very interesting and cool evolution for the three of us, going from childhood to writing songs together and learning how to respect each other's talents and gifts in music," said Anna Christie. "I think we're continuing to discover how to highlight each of us and our strengths in the group."
Coruscate at the Meadow Gate highlights the Sadler sisters' eclectic style, ranging from American folk to electronic to alternative rock. With influences ranging from (French composer and pianist) Erik Satie and Chopin to The Ramones and Jeff Buckley to Patsy Cline, The Shirelles, The Ravens and Leadbelly, their music has a 50s doo-wop, vocal based majestic folk pop sound.
Members of Sisters 3 have opened up for Robert Plant, Alison Krauss and T-Bone Burnett at venues including The Red Rocks Amphitheater, The Greek Theater in LA, The Hollywood Bowl, The Mann Center (Philadelphia) and Madison Square Garden. They have worked with acclaimed producers Mark Howard (Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris), Don Was (The Rolling Stones, Ringo Starr) and Glenn Marshall (Feist, Broken Social Scene, Peter Yarrow).
The sisters are available for interviews and live performance opportunities.
