An introduction

The Chapin Sisters are three sisters from New York whose unique blend of traditional folk harmonies and Indie rock moodiness have been winning them an increasing number of fans.

Though the girls have been singing together informally for years, the Chapin Sisters started as a group only a year ago. One night the sisters started playing three part harmony renditions of new wave and punk songs they'd listened to growing up. The result was so satisfying they decided to scrape together some cash and record six covers ranging from Neil Young to Culture Club. Abigail packed up her life in New York and moved to LA, Lily quit her busy film job, and Jessica cleared her schedule.

When their version of Britney Spears' mega-hit ""Toxic"" caught the attention of Los Angeles DJs Anne Lit and Nick Harcourt and became one of KCRW's most requested songs of 2004, the sisters knew they were on to something.

Over the last year the girls have been writing ""cheeky and dark"" songs which are beautifully memorable - their performances have been termed ""haunting, fierce, coquettish and inspiringly modern."" Seven McDonald from the LA Weekly referred to them as ""Part Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and part Cat Power.""

Over the last year, they've played everything from hole-in-the-wall bars in LA to a bluegrass festival in Winfield Kansas.

The Chapin Sisters are currently working on a home-recorded EP of original material which will be available by Summer 2005.
