THE STAVES @ The Bootleg Theater

On Saturday, The Staves finished off their 25-city, North American Tour at Los Angeles' Bootleg Theater.  Their British acoustic, folk melodies, often quiet and fragile only showcased the trio's perfect harmonizing and crisp vocals - enough so that you can almost hear a pin drop.

It was their very first performance in Los Angeles and they spoke about touring on the road here in the U.S., pointing out 'weird' truck stops and truckers and filming their upcoming video in Big Sur.  

Sisters Emily, Camilla and Jessica Staveley-Taylor has gained popularity here in the States when they opened up for The Civil Wars last year and has gained more loyal followers since their strong showing at this years' South By Southwest last March in Austin, Texas while also supporting Bon Iver during his North American tour.  Their debut album Dead & Born & Grown was released in November 2012.
