Emily, Jessica, and Camilla Staveley-Taylor, also known as The Staves, are bringing a whole new face to Folk music. With innovative grooves, poignant lyrics, and the sort of cohesion that can only come from siblings, The Staves can’t help but tickle your ear drums. It’s not traditional folk music by any stretch, but you can hear echoes of it underneath some of the more contemporary sounds; Synths, intricate harmonies and textures, minimalist techniques, and the three sisters’ clever word bending create a sound that is all their own, and one not to miss. The Staves stopped by Studio 1A before their show at Emo’s, check out their session below!
