Sister Act Fires Up The Folk Scene (Created April 17, 2013)
Name something in music more trendy these days than folk bands and sibling acts. The Staves combine the best of both worlds, with Jessica Stavely-Taylor the middle child between sisters Emily and Camilla. Raised on a steady diet of 1970's folk luminaries, their acoustic ballads and delicate harmonies have become the stuff of legend, with the band graduating from open mic nights to one of the biggest names to come out of Waterford, England.
How did the Staves get to the point where everybody knows their name? It started with a steady diet of the Eagles, James Taylor and Crosby, Still, Nash & Young. But when their parents pushed them from the dinner table into a more public outlet for performing, they conquered the local pub scene in short order. What's more, the group had a name that stuck when a friend combined their last name of Staveley-Taylor and shortened it to The Staves. It was the spark, for lack of a better name, that had the band off and running.
An appearance on the Tom Jones album "Praise and Blame," and a UK tour with Mt. Desolation were just two of the projects these ladies dabbled in prior to the release of a pair of EPs. The first, "Live at Cecil Sharp House," was followed by "Mexico" (both 2011) before the band appeared on Fionn Regan's third studio album "100 Acres of Sycamore."
It didn't take long before this sister act also kicked open doors in the US. They supported the heavily talked-about group The Civil Wars on tour in January 2012. That gig opened doors to a spot at South by Southwest in March and the Austin to Boston tour the following month. The band then served as a supporting act for Bon Iver on their Norther American tour.
The Staves' debut album, "Dead & Born & Grown" bowed in November 2012.
