THE LOVELL SISTERS BIO:
Jessica (20), Megan (16), and Rebecca (15) began lessons in classical violin and piano at age five. The sisters sang as a trio for church and in the church choir. All three were members of string quartets and youth symphonies and, at fifteen, Jessica was co-principle of the second violin section in the SAU Symphony Orchestra.
â€œBitten by the bluegrass bugâ€ two years ago, The Lovell Sisters strayed from their classical roots after friends introduced them to the jamming and traditional music of the Signal Mountain Opry near Chattanooga, TN. Jerry Douglas' Slide Rule was the first bluegrass album they heard, inspiring Megan to play the resophonic guitar. The Lovell Sisters now bring youthful vigor and a wide variety of influences to bluegrass.

â€œThe Lovell Sisters, Jessica, Megan and Rebecca, recently released their first CD, which youâ€™ll find to be superb in every aspect...with the Lovellâ€™s talents they could be playing any form of music and bluegrass is fortunate to have them under its tent.â€
Bluegrass Now Magazine
Larry Mullen, April 2006 Issue
â€œThe Lovell Sisterâ€™s have created music that should be as radio and video friendly as anything Alison Krauss and Nickel Creek have done.â€
Cybergrass, January 8th, 2006
The Internetâ€™s Bluegrass Music Magazine Since 1992
â€œWhen Forever Rolls Around is just a stunning album-the girls have a voice and a sound all their own which I find most engaging and gratifying. It's nice to hear music from someone who is forging their own path and not attempting to emulate someone else.â€

Nashville Public Radio/WPLN-FM
â€œ...bluegrass, folk, country, and contemporary played and sung with youthful enthusiasm, to say nothing of prodigious talent."
