The Violet Lockets / Bio

Hello! We are The Violet Lockets. :) We are Sara Pilz, Midge Pickett, and Matt Ballard.
The band began its journey in West Plains, MO a few years ago where a nearly-out-of-high-school pair of childhood friends started pecking out notes together on an old piano. After writing a few original songs, playing a show or two, garnering some interest online, and enjoying every moment of it, we began to realize how amazingly rewarding of an experience making music could be. Matt Ballard entered the story a couple years later, and not very long after that we relocated to Springfield, MO where we've been for the past ten months or so.
Having grown up in the Ozarks, we are inspired greatly by our beautiful surroundings here and we like for that to come through in our music. We hope that you'll take a listen and enjoy what you hear.
