The Cornshed Sisters are Jennie, Cath, Liz and Marie.
Guitar pop, folk tales, protest songs, country music, piano ballads and gospel must have all gone into the same soup from which these women supped.
Although unified in their musical tastes, as songwriters and interpreters The Cornshed Sisters display a healthy disregard for unity of subject matter (reminiscent perhaps of Randy Newman, Joni Mitchell or Richard and Linda Thompson). On their debut album ‘Tell Tales’, the ladies tackle waterbabies (‘Tommy’), marriage, men in sequined suits (‘Dance At My Wedding’), gardening (‘If You Were Mine’), soothsayers (‘The Beekeeper’), making pies out of people (‘Pies For The Fair’) and the axis of love and bombs (‘Dresden’).
Drawing on a palette of vocals, assorted guitars, ukulele and piano they convey these ideas with sensitivity and humour. Their four distinctive yet sympathetic voices range far and wide, recalling the emotive tangles of The Band as often as the choral elegance of The Roches yet sung and arranged in their own distinctly English manner.
The Cornshed Sister's debut album ‘Tell Tales’ was recorded and co-produced with Peter Brewis at Field Music’s studio on the banks of the Wear with minimal overdubs, capturing the Sisters in all their dynamic glory.
Available on CD and LP. LP is pressed on white vinyl and includes download code.
