The Living Sisters

Put together the three beautiful songstresses Inara George (of the bird and the bee, who I recently wrote about here), Becky Stark (of Lavender Diamond), and Eleni Mandell together, and you've got a trio made in heaven. The three ladies have taken a step away from their respective gigs to put together a ten track album, love to live, that combines the skills and beauty of all three, and which features songs written by each of them. The tracks weave together the voices of all three ladies, and the melodies that result are incredible. As a whole the album has a retro doo-wop/jazzy inflection to it that will remind you of each of the ladies' individual work in some respects but which also holds an original charm of its own.

Visit their label Vanguard Records and become their friend on MySpace.

'Love to Live' is such a solid release... hope to hear more from them someday.
