"Babineaux Sisters from North Vermilion Release First Album"

By the time someone turns 24 years old, he or she is likely still working to reach a goal.

Sisters Gracie and Julie Babineaux have reached an important goal in 24 years of life. That would be a combined 24 years, though. Vermilion Parish natives Gracie, 13, and Julie, 11, who together form The Babineaux Sisters Band, recently recorded their first album.

Both girls said they are “relieved” to be finished with the production of their self-titled “Babineaux Sisters.” Relieved and...

“To know that it really happened is the best feeling in the world,” the girls said in a combined answer.

Gracie and Julie Babineaux were born in Forked Island and now reside in Meaux with their parents, Shannon and Cedric Babineaux. The debut album has a feel of home, especially the title track. The title song “Jolie Wetlands” written by Gracie and Julie, is about Vermilion Parish and how important wetlands are to the area’s future. The girls recorded this song, along with eight others, in both English and French.

“We decided to record “Jolie Wetlands” in English and French,” Julie Babineaux said, “because of how important the song was to us. We wanted everyone to understand our lyrics.”

The album, which took almost a year to write and compose and six months to record, has been featured on four radio stations, as well as the “Swamp N’ Roll” show. The sisters own copyrights to five of the songs on the album and they are listed in the Library of Congress. The Jazz & Heritage Talent Exchange also includes a bio of the band on its Web site.

The band has played several venues, including the Liberty Theatre in Eunice and the Abita Springs Opry. And they could be leaping the boundaries of Louisiana. They have received invitations to play in Canada and Washington, D.C. And a DJ in the Netherlands recently contacted the band about playing some tracks on his show. Piet Ribbers has a Cajun and Zydeco program.

“My husband and I are so very proud of them,” Shannon Babineaux said. “We are proud, not only of their hard work to keep their culture alive, but also their giving hand they lend to their community.”

As busy as the girls stay with the band, success in that area does not come at the expense of other important things in life.

Gracie Babineaux is in the 8th grade at North Vermilion High School. She is a 4.0 student and president of the student body. Gracie is also is 4-H vice president, Beta vice president, and plays piano for both the junior high and high school jazz bands.

Julie is in 6th grade at Meaux Elementary. Like her sister, she is also a 4.0 student. Julie is also president of her 4-H club, and vice president of her Beta Club.

“No matter how busy these young girls are, they always make time to give back to the community,” Shannon Babineaux said. “Gracie gives fiddle and accordion lessons, and Julie gives guitar lessons. They also make time to play at the nursing home once a month.”

The girls admit that balancing things in their lives is not always easy.

“Sometimes we feel overwhelmed,” Gracie said. “But our parents help us prioritize what is most important. That would be school. Then we are able to do other things.

“We are very lucky (because) my mom and dad are awesome.”

Julie agreed.

“My Granny and Paw help out too,” Julie said, “especially now that we have a baby brother, lil’ Gus. We do what we can and take it one day at a time!!

“Its all worth it. I wouldn’t change a thing. We live a ‘Bon Vie’, a good life.”
