Show Info

“Americana darlings with a roadhouse edge” (NPR). Sweetback Sisters Emily Miller and Zara Bode may not be blood relations, but their precise, family-style harmonies recall the best of country music from the Everlys to the Judds, as well as the spirited rockabilly energy of Wanda Jackson, one of the band’s role models. Like the artists they admire, the Sweetbacks are concerned with the traditional subjects of heartbreak, revenge, remorse and staying strong in the face of relationships gone wring, albeit with a contemporary sensibility. “We’re a renegade retro band that mixes up country, swing, and honky tonk,” explains Bode. “Sometimes what we deliver is straight out of the 50s, other times it’s BR549 meets the B52s.” http://www.thesweetbacksisters.com/
