Artist / Band Bio:
The Cedar Sisters – Jane Carmichael and Elle Hermansen – met when both were brought in as backup singers for a local rock band. The two songwriters felt an instant personal and musical connection, and soon after began writing together.
Carmichael and Hermansen are sisters in spirit, if not in fact. They share remarkably similar stories, both on and off the stage. Both were involved in pop bands that “almost” got signed, both released solo albums after those bands fell apart, both have endured ups and downs in the music business, and both suffer from endometriosis. They even have the same middle name.
It’s no surprise, then, that they sing so beautifully together.
The Cedar Sisters use their similarities and their differences to create a sound that they affectionately refer to as “electro-folk pop”– the perfect marriage of Carmichael’s folk sensibility and Hermansen’s electronic vibe. Their music is haunting, atmospheric, and emotionally intense. Inspired by artists like Stevie Nicks, Kate Bush, the Traveling Wilburys, and First Aid Kit, folk elements with a distinct 80s pop overtone shine through their music.
The Cedar Sisters released their first single, “Wait”, in May of 2017. It’s a dark and moving track about a dying relationship. Like all of their songs, it’s a deeply honest expression of personal experience. They are currently writing and recording more new songs with the goal to release their debut EP later this year.
The Cedar Sisters name invokes native spirituality. Cedar is used in many native ceremonies and is known as a strong and fragrant wood. For Carmichael and Hermansen, the name suggests mystery and magic, and speaks to their shared faith in the power of music.
