Let the Sirens of South Austin Sweep You Away

Though they’ll soon release an EP under the name Nobody’s Girl, a trio of Texas-based singer-songwriters — BettySoo, Grace Pettis and Rebecca Loebe — is touring under the heading “Sirens of South Austin” and they are bringing their show to Asheville’s Isis Restuarant and Music Hall on April 15.

The show will be held at 7:30 p.m. and tickets cost $15.

BettySoo, Grace Pettis, Rebecca Loebe are three of the town’s top singer-songwriters. Hailing from Texas, Alabama, and Georgia respectively, they bewitch audiences with sumptuous harmonies and unforgettable songwriting. Friends now for a decade, they first met at the legendary Kerrville Folk Festival, each winner of the annual “New Folk” award. Luscious harmony singers, effortless instrumentalists, seasoned touring artists— they recognized what each can accomplish individually could be made all the stronger by collaboration.

Now, at work on their first recordings, the spark has been set, the fire lit. A video of “Fast Car” garners 20,00 views on Facebook within days of posting. A Spring tour filling fast. Summer festivals being booked. The harmonies are thrilling; echoes of Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt’s Trio recordings. The songs are powerful and spare. The stage presence confident and assured. Get ready to be swept away; Nobody’s Girls are proving irresistible.
