The Staves include Emily, Jessica, and Camilla Staveley-Taylor, who have been making music together since they were children in Watford, England. Brought up with the sounds of Simon and Garfunkel; Crosby, Stills & Nash; and the Beatles, singing in perfect three-part harmony came naturally to these three sisters. After gigging in local pubs and cafes, the Staves are now captivating audiences on much bigger stages—earning rapturous encores with their exquisite songs and jaw-dropping performances. In 2012, the Staves supported the Civil Wars across the U.S., and Michael Kiwanuka in the UK. In March, the band debuted at SXSW debut to sold-out rooms. In May and June, the Staves will be supporting Bon Iver across North America, with appearances at both Sasquatch and Bonnaroo. The Staves have recorded two EPs, entitled Mexico and The Motherlode. Their debut LP, Dead and Born and Grown, produced by Glyn and Ethan Johns, was released in 2012.
Escondido is made up of Nashville-based artists Jessica Maros and Tyler James. Recorded live in a single day, their 10-song debut album, The Ghost of Escondido, was released in February. Their sound is a washed out desert landscape steeped in American roots music. Escondido’s songs range from the Tom Petty/Fleetwood Mac-influenced pop numbers “Cold October” and “Bad Without You,” to the lovelorn country ballads “Special Enough” and “Willow Tree.” Escondido is a band whose songs are tales of love lost across the western sky.
