Nerissa and Katryna Nields
February 10, 2012
From one of the best loved indie bands of the '90s comes Nerissa & Katryna Nields: a mesmerizing duo who marry alt country to classic folk-rock. The Nields have been the darlings of the coffeehouse/festival scene since 1991, with tunes ranging from off-the-hook idiosyncratic songs to heartbreaking ballads, fusing intelligent lyrics with heartfelt sensitivity. "Sister Holler," the newest and 14th career release from Nerissa and Katryna Nields, is a "roots album" that retools and reinterprets the music they grew up with to create something strikingly new. "Sister Holler" demonstrates that it is possible to return to tradition while growing musically into fresh new directions.
