Sister Sparrow will be one of the greats of our time...

family matters here, as the Kincheloes have grown up playing music with their parents their whole lives. But even in Kincheloe lore, Arleigh stands out. She is Sister Sparrow. When I moved to her tiny town upstate, about 8 years ago, I was lucky enough to catch her last high school musical, when she (at all of 17) starred in Bye Bye Birdie. As a transplanted theater historian in Upstate NY, I suddenly found myself inhaling pure oxygen. I made sure I wrote a sentence about each lead in the show so I could just go for broke and write a paean to Arleigh: her timing, her comedic sensibilities, her dance/singing/acting triumvirate. Now that her voice has broken free, and she has this magnificent horn section backing her, with her cousin on drums and bro on Harmonica, I think the interesting twist is how the blues changes when a woman is writing the songs. It's not about some guy with a six-gauge in his hands, it's about weird/great dreams with mysterious men coming into the woman's life. Now we get the OTHER side of the blues!


Their alblum is great and they are also absolutely incredible live! If you ever get a chance to catch a show I promise that you will be absolutely blown away!

Love this album and this band!

I've been listening to this album for three weeks straight and plan to listen to it over and over again in 2011. It is such a refreshing sound, please, please keep making music like this.

By the summer of 2009, they had built...
