Taking a cue from youthful folk revivalists like Laura Marling, Mountain Man, and the Pierces, Watford, England’s The Staves blend the wistful cadences of classic British folk with breezy, Laurel Canyon-era pop.
Their third and latest album Good Woman was written and recorded in a time of severe turmoil for the band, seeing the ending of relationships, the death of their beloved mother and the birth of Emily’s first child. Produced by John Congleton, the album stands as a testament to their strength and that of other women, to sisters, mothers and daughters. To love, loss and change. To trying to be a good woman.
The trio formed in 2010 around the talents of sisters Emily (vocals), Jessica (vocals/guitar), and Camilla Staveley-Taylor (vocals/ukulele), who first learned to harmonise by singing along with their parents’ record collection, dominated by the likes of Simon & Garfunkel and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. They have since gone on to tour across the world with the likes of Bon Iver, First Aid Kit and Florence and the Machine.
