The Cedar Sisters have just released a new single, “Fire You Burn,” produced by Matt Weston, Jane Carmichael, and Elle Hermansen.
The Cedar Sisters (Jane Carmichael and Elle Hermansen) met when both were brought in as backup singers for a local rock band. The two songwriters felt an instant personal and musical connection, and soon after began writing together.
The Cedar Sisters have used their similarities and their differences to create a sound that they affectionately refer to as “electro-folk pop”– the perfect marriage of Carmichael’s folk sensibility and Hermansen’s electronic vibe. Their music is haunting, atmospheric, and emotionally intense. It also has a distinct 80s pop overtone inspired by artists like Stevie Nicks, Kate Bush, First Aid Kit, and the Traveling Wilburys.
The Cedar Sisters released their first single, “Wait”, in May of 2017. It’s a dark and moving track about a dying relationship. Like all of their songs, it’s also a deeply honest expression of personal experience. They are currently writing and recording more new songs with the goal of releasing their debut EP later this year. We’re looking forward to hearing them live at this year’s Home County Music and Art Festival!
