For many of us, music and family go hand in hand. It can help shape great family moments like birthdays, holidays like Christmas or Thanksgiving, even family reunions. For some, that musical connection goes deeper than a family BBQ. The Osmonds, the Jacksons, The Gap Band, and plenty of other family bands have harnessed their shared love of music to create some incredibly memorable songs. Now you can add Austin, TX based family The Bishops to that list. By combining soul, jazz, and hip hop along with a host of other musical influences the bother sister duo create a sound all their own. Cara and Troy Bishop who make up the group mix the silky vocals of Cara with the nonchalant smooth raps of Troy that resembles 90’s Hip Hop group Digable Planets. The duo’s newly released single, “Truffle Trap” showcases the duo’s simplistic yet intricate style of Troy delivering smooth rhymes over futuristic instrumentals, as Cara’s silky, sultry voice shines through on the hook.
