Biography

“You don’t know what you’ve been missing…” to borrow a line from one of the Squash Blossom’s original songs, if you haven’t heard phenomenal three-part harmonies of this talented trio, you surely don’t know what you’ve been missing.
The Squash Blossoms are: Ashlee Dillon, Niki Giles and Sarah Saunders, hailing from Johnson City, TN. Their just released cd “Around the Blend” contains ten original songs; each of which were a collaborative effort of the band members. The Squash Blossoms take the only cover, Old Crow Medicine Show’s “Wagon Wheel” and make it their own.
The trio began playing together just over three years ago and since then have developed a dedicated following around Johnson City. They have opened for internationally know singer/songwriter Kimmie Rhodes and played area festivals such as Rhythm and Roots, Blue Plum and Music on the Square. They can frequently be heard at many of Johnson City’s hot spots including Halo, Down Home and Boonedocks.
On the cd, John Gardner joins the Squash Blossoms, adding his unique percussion to the girls’ harmonious sound. John is a seasoned veteran of the music business, having been a session musician in Nashville for as he says “forever”. John’s son, Avery Gardner (also a session musician) lays down the bass to complete the sound. The cd was produced and engineered at John’s studio, Johnny Geez located in Johnson City, TN on Notcho Face records. For booking information, contact:
