The Lovell Sisters feature the tight harmonies of The Lovell Sisters with an innovative fusion of country, folk, and contemporary acoustic music. They have toured from their hometown of Calhoun, GA to perform in over 24 states, Ireland, and Norway.
The Lovell Sisters won NPR’s “Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor” National Teen Talent Competition 2005 and released their debut album, entitled When Forever Rolls Around, later that year. They are currently hard at work on their second project.
Jessica, Megan, and Rebecca began taking classical violin and piano lessons at age five. The sisters sang in their church choir and were members of string quartets and youth symphonies. Nearly four years ago, they strayed from their classical roots to pursue the instrumentation and improvisation of traditional music. The Lovell Sisters now bring youthful vigor and a wide variety of musical influences to their live performances.
Jessica Lovell (fiddle / vocals), 22, began classical violin at age 5 and became heavily involved in symphonies and quartets. She was co-principle of the 2nd violin section of the SAU Symphony Orchestra at 15. Jessica now has a fiddling style that reflects her classical background. As the eldest sister, Jessica sings much of the lead vocals and helps to keep the band organized and moving forward.
Megan Lovell (resophonic guitar / vocals), 19, studied classical violin and piano for more than 10 years but, after hearing Jerry Douglas (of Alison Krauss and Union Station), chose to pursue a passionate interest in the resophonic guitar (or dobro). Besides Jerry Douglas, Megan`s primary influences are electric guitarists, such as Mark Knopfler, The Allman Brothers, Eric Clapton, and Derek Trucks.
Rebecca Lovell (mandolin / vocals), 17, also studied classical violin and piano, but strayed from the classical fold to play mandolin. May 2006, Rebecca became the first woman and youngest contestant to win the MerleFest International Mandolin Competition. Rebecca writes much of the original material performed by the band and finds it helpful to play mandola, guitar, banjo, and piano while composing.
