Editors’ Notes

Alabama-rooted sisters Catherine and Allison Pierce are experiencing the “big in Japan” curse that so many American artists struggle with (in their case, they're big in Britain). Just as the sisters were about to throw in the towel after their third record was undeservedly neglected, Coldplay bassist Guy Berryman asked the duo to tour with his band. Next thing you know, he’s working with the sisters in the studio, and You and I is hitting the U.K. charts. The sisters’ charming, folkified songs and glowing harmonies get a polishing here, with the calliopes and sitars of their previous record vanishing in favor of more focused arrangements with guitars, drums, and occasional strings, and much of the dark driven out. They handle this more commercial flavor as well as they did their rough-edged, woodsy wackiness, and some of the melodies are just deadly. “Kissing You Goodbye” feels like The Mamas & The Papas’ “California Dreaming” on steroids, and the modest U.K. hit “Glorious” is a curiously uplifting anthem. (It was written by New York artist James Levy, with whom Allison appears on the beautiful James Levy & The Blood Red Rose album Pray to Be Free.)

Absolutely gorgeous CD from start to finish. Beautiful crystaline vocals, haunting melodies, and a rich, layered production make this release one of my favorites.

Grab it and enrich your life with this mesmerising music. A true musical treasure indeed!

This album will continue to spin on your playlist for years to come. It has the strong appeal of being both charmingly classic and modern. The Pierces should be a mainstay in music from here on out.

Beautiful evolution of a sound!

From Light of the Moon to Thirteen Tales and now You & I this band's sound keeps growing and evolving in its composition and beauty. Great work ladies!

The Pierces -- comprised of photogenic sisters Catherine and Allison -- took root in the siblings' hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. Home-schooled by their musician father and painter mother, the Pierce girls were encouraged in the arts from a young age, and quickly learned to play guitar and harmonize. Though they both became accomplished ballerinas, by 1995 Catherine and Allison had left dance to attend Auburn University and play music. Sony soon took interest in the duo's sound, and the Pierces...
