Lachlan's Daughters began learning piano and guitar when they were still in single digits. From the beginning they possessed an amazing set of sensibilities with their mature musical tastes, learning classical piano while being influenced by jazz, rock, soul, and blues. They also possessed a remarkable talent for vocal harmonies and composition, writing original songs and playing out whenever they could in their hometown of Portland, Oregon. Quickly, though, they took their acoustic duo performances up and down the west coast. The advantage of those roots manifests itself primarily in the fact that their songs stand on their own musical merits and don’t rely upon an overproduced sound. By the time they began to record they knew they needed serious players to back them up. They scoured the U.S. from LA to Orlando with the ambitious goals of finding the right caliber musicians and the right studios with the right engineers. The results are astounding. What started as a recording session became magic and produced a stunningly talented band. The music will by turns make you weep, make you laugh, tap your toes, clap your hands and make you sing along. You can’t help it.
