The Staves perform 'Icarus' for The Crypt Sessions
A cold, grey January morning in North London was the setting for the first days filming of the new season of The Crypt Sessions. Heaters were on, lights warming up and teas and bacon sarnies all round for the crew when the intercom buzzed and The Staves climbed the well worn Crypt staircase. The temperature rose in an instant.
These three sisters from Watford bring warmth through their friendliness, talent and most importantly beautiful music. As soon as the harmonies were rising up through the room smiles sprung up all around and the transformation was complete.
If you haven't heard about them already, you will do soon. The Staves grew up on a diet of Motown, Buffalo Springfield, Simon and Garfunkel to name a few. Shared music through family sing alongs, squabbles and car journeys. These days, thankfully, they are sharing their voices with the world and what voices they are.
On tour as we speak with Crypt Session fav, Michael Kiwanuka, a second E.P. imminent and their debut album to come in the summer. Sit back and enjoy, The Staves.
