Artists You Should Know

This is that rare nugget you look for as a music writer.

Jenni and Amanda Price are sisters, twins in fact. One can only imagine that it is the closely shared DNA that accounts for the flawless melding of their beautiful voices. Each alone is a fascinating talent, able to invoke folk, blues, soul and any number of genres. But together they titallate every one of the senses.

Singing since age two, they have only now given up their day jobs and decided to break free and become full time musicians. A big move for any artist, let alone two not-yet-thirty year old sisters. But it is a move that has been applauded by their peers, and a much hoped for announcement from their fans.

They have played around the country in every facet of venue and stage size. They play as a duet, have Jeremy Serwer join them to make a dynamic trio, and then break out with a full on band on occasion. But regardless of who else they are on stage with your attention never leaves the sisters.

Off-stage they are both unassuming and casual, without a hint of their talent apparent. But their charisma and engaging personalities are always on display, radiatiing off of them as naturally as they breathe. You would want them as a sister, a best friend, a girlfriend - their joyful outlook on life being the draw. So once they hit the stage and really turn it on, all bets are off.

While their newfound full-time musician status means they will be playing more, it also means they will be touring points elsewhere as well, making the shows they do at home all the more precious. With two local album releases under their belt, 'Time' in 2005 and the even more critically acclaimed 2006 release 'Live at Mississippi Studios', they have a bountiful array of selections to choose from. But this is still only a pale example of what their live show is like.

Beautiful harmonies dont do the sisters justice. Its like hearing two shades of the same voice, seeing both sides of the same coin at the same time. Kitschy, we know, but its the truth. We keep hoping for juicy wild sibling rivalry stories from the road, but no such luck. So in the meantime, check the calendar and find these girls before they get snatched up by the big cities.
