It’s hard to beat the harmonic intuition of sisters.
Amy & Rachel Beck began singing together around the family piano in Montague, PEI. They now share their pop-tinged folk with eager and ever-expanding audiences in Canada and beyond. The Beck Sisters are celebrating the release of their multi award-nominated sophomore album, Run, produced by fellow Islander Tim Chaisson.
Amy & Rachel draw the folk stylings of decades past keenly into the present, infusing elements of roots, pop, and R&B to create a unique sonic signature. Amy’s multi-instrumental melodies act as the anchor for Rachel’s stunning lead vocals and percussive forays, but the standout moments come when the sisters’ complementary voices blend in perfect harmony, rendering it nearly impossible to tell where one ends and the other begins.
Although the Becks’ musical kinship reaches back to their shared childhood, their penchant for writing and performing was a secret well-kept until they entered the inaugural CBC Music Searchlight Contest in 2013 and landed a spot as national finalists. Since, the duo has been making up for lost time. Tour highlights include playing the legendary Stan Rogers Folk Festival (2015), opening for Tom Cochrane at Rock the Boat Music Fest (2015), and performing during Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall’s Royal Visit to Canada (2014).
