The T Sisters are a vocally driven contemporary folk band hailing from Oakland, California. The three sisters’ inventive songwriting is supported by their own acoustic instrumentation as well as by upright bassist Steve Height and mandolinist/guitar player Andrew Allen Fahlander.  When performing their lively set of originals and covers—occasionally in arresting a cappella–they captivate audiences with close harmonies, creative arrangements, and sassy performance style.  Touching on elements of folk, Americana, gospel, R&B, bluegrass and soul, the T Sisters weave evocative stories with a sound that is at once modern and timeless.

Though the roots of their project are many years in the making, the T Sisters became full-time musicians only in 2014. They began 2015 grateful for a host of accomplishments: their first full-length album, produced by Grammy-winning musician Laurie Lewis, and a new EP; a performance of the national anthem at the San Francisco Giants game; supporting vocals two years in a row at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass; a performance in support of ALO at the legendary Fillmore in San Francisco; and an exciting performance on Garrison Keillor’s classic live radio show ‘A Prairie Home Companion.’ They have been honored to lend their vocals to a range of musicians and musical projects: Laurie Lewis, Amos Lee, Jim Lauderdale, The Waybacks, The California Honeydrops, Elephant Revival, Everyone Orchestra, and many more.  The T Sisters look forward to many more musical adventures together.
