T Sisters Release Self-Titled Sophomore Studio Album on October 14th
The T Sisters debut one of their new tracks, “Shadoop,” exclusively for FSHN Magazine.
In the heart of the creative renaissance taking shape in Oakland, California, the T Sisters are making a name for themselves as one of the West Coast’s foremost indie-Americana acts poised to break out in 2016. A follow-up to their 2014 debut release, Kindred Lines (produced by celebrated bluegrass artist Laurie Lewis), the T Sisters’ forthcoming self-titled sophomore studio album is set for release on Friday, October 14, 2016. T Sisters features 10 songs that, while inspired by the American folk tradition, also embody a fresh and contemporary sound with inflections of pop, R&B/soul and country.
Led by sisters Erika, Rachel and Chloe Tietjen, the T Sisters first came to national recognition with a performance on A Prairie Home Companion and a nationally broadcasted rendition of the national anthem at a San Francisco Giants game. Their awe-inspiring harmonies have impressed many prominent artists, leading to onstage collaborations with the likes of Amos Lee, Jim Lauderdale, and The Wood Brothers, as well as supporting vocal performances for three years in a row at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. Quickly garnering the attention of top tastemakers, the debut single “The Road” from their sophomore album is already receiving early airplay on Sirius/XM, and the second album single “Come Back Down” has aired on the venerable San Francisco radio station KFOG.
Working in tandem with lauded engineer Cian Riordan (Nickel Creek, Grace Potter), the T Sisters have taken the reigns as executive producers for the first time, shining a light on not only the sisters’ compelling songwriting but also their production savviness. The 9 original compositions and one cover song comprising T Sisters cast a portrait of life experiences replete with love, struggle, and self-discovery. Drawing from the doo-wop influences of the late ’50s, “Shadoop,” in sultry vocal tones, chronicles a romance arising from an unexpected encounter.
They embark on a headlining tour throughout the Western states in October and November 2016 in support of their new record, and are set to perform in East Coast markets during the first quarter of 2017. On October 14th, T Sisters celebrate the national release of their latest recording at The Chapel in San Francisco, CA.
