Smith Sisters Bluegrass formed in 2016 at the suggestion of their dad… an award winning singer and musician. It was at one of their last visits with him, they heard a charming bluegrass band at a Farmers Market in Northern California. Their dad turned to Kelli and said “you girls should really try bluegrass!” and so it began…
Having always loved bluegrass music the Smith Sisters knew their sound might not be “traditional” bluegrass… but… they couldn’t deny it any longer… their originals had to be bluegrass!
The Smith Sisters released an album… in their dad’s honor… in 2017 entitled “Shoe Tree” and to continue their dad’s legacy the girls decided to go “all in” and form their bluegrass band using their maiden name… Smith… thus Smith Sisters Bluegrass was born!
The sisters decided they also had way too many great stories to tell about about their mom… so in August of 2018 their sophomore album entitled “Momma!” was released!
Here we are in 2019… their third EP is set to release on June 7, 2019 entitled “With Love…” This release is especially special to Kelli and Wendi because it includes 3 original tunes from a wonderful songwriter who has been holding onto them for many years. This CD is all about love which is a beautiful thing!
Since forming Smith Sisters Bluegrass has appeared live on the CBS morning television show “Good Day Sacramento;” received two 2016 Academia Awards, a 2017 Josie Award nomination as well as two additional 2018 Josie Award nominations and as of 2019 they have received multiple nominations from ISSA, Global Peace Song Awards and Josie Music Awards.
