Siblings are rolling Stones in folk circles (Created February 20, 2013)
In a long line of show business families and brother-sister combinations, there is no sibling rivalry with Angus & Julia Stone. The super duo from Down Under has been making waves with their music -- from picking strings on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia to the bright lights of the Coachella Festival in California. This folk-blues group is certainly an exciting act to look out for.
The 'band' behind Angus & Julia Stone actually consists of alternate lead vocals and guitar, and Mitchell Connelly on drums and percussion. Their talent was born of open mic nights, hotel gigs and writing plenty of their own material. They decided to join forces in early 2006 and immediately began recording their debut extended play, "Chocolates and Cigarettes." Five short months later, they played to a full house at the Splendor in the Grass festival in Byron Bay, Australia.
Angus & Julia quickly inked a two-EP distribution deal with EMI Music and indy label Independiente Records in the U.K. After relocating to London, it wasn't long before they landed a worldwide publishing deal and recorded material which later became a part of their debut album, "A Book Like This." It bowed in September 2007 and was the precursor to their self-produced sophomore effort, "Down the Way" in 2010.
Away from their familial harmonies, the siblings have each issued solo albums. Angus released "Smoking Guns" (under the pseudonym Lady of the Sunshine) in April 2009 and "Broken Brights" in July 2012. Julia's projects are "The Memory Machine" (October 2010) and "By the Horns" (May 2012).
