“Ari & Mia are not creating a new music; they are taking it to another level and exploring areas that have not been attempted in decades. Their all-acoustic, pure and honest approach has significance. Treading the edges of traditional folk in a more faithful manner, they share the lyrical wizardry of 70’s bands Steeleye Span, Tir-na-Nog, and the Incredible String Band, with searing harmony as good as The Beach Boys. The sisters sing in unison like two violins,” continues No Depression on the review of their most recent release, Out of Stone.
Together, the sisters have toured all across the U.S and Australia and are both graduates of New England Conservatory’s cutting edge Contemporary Improvisation department. Both award winning songwriters, Mia’s song “Across the Water” won the 2010 John Lennon Songwriting Contest in the folk category, and Ari’s song “Old Man” was a semi-finalist for the 2016 International Songwriting Competition. Their two previous albums, Land on Shore and Unruly Heart, ranked high on the national folk radio charts.
