From ages 15 to 21, The KC Sisters consist of 5 members. The all-girl group are fond of music from the 60s and late 70s, as they cover iconic songs from the era such as Please Mr. Postman Originally Performed by The Marvelettes (1961).

The KC Sisters just released a their latest EP, Walk With Me, which features four original compositions and cover renditions such as I'm Diggin It, and Please Mr. Postman.



In 2019, the KC Sisters will be profiled in a one-hour docutainment, “The Girlhood”, paying tribute to the girl groups of the 1960s including The Shangri-Las, The Supremes, The Shirelles, The Ronettes, Martha and the Vandellas, The Chiffons, The Crystals, The Paris Sisters, The Exciters, and The Dixie Cups. A new LP will be released featuring 12 songs from these top Billboard hits.

The KC Sisters burst with potential, the combination of all the girls vocals is simply put , glorious.

I strongly reccomed listning to the Please Mr. Postman cover, to get a small grasp for the girl's immense talent:

"KC Sisters: “Walk With Me” featuring the single “Please Mr. Postman”"

The KC Sisters aren’t old enough to remember when radio programmed pop records next to country, rock, folk, and beyond, but their artistic DNA tells them that’s the way music was meant to be heard. Their sound on the EP, “Walk With Me”, is like a warm embrace from a loved one. It’s sincere, authentic and absolute, taken from a legacy of sound that comes from their fondness for the all-girl groups of the 1960s. The Casey sisters – Deanna, Noelle, Tasha, Elise and Kathleen – highlight their acapella harmonization, as well as their mastery as skilled musicians, playing piano, guitar, violin, bass, cello and drums. Moreover they are ably supported by their parents – their father Chris, a professor of jazz studies, is the music director, songwriter, arranger, composer and pianist. While their mother, Jennifer, manages the group, and contributes her violin talents when needed.

Perhaps the most arresting thing about the EP is the sustained atmosphere throughout — while there are a wide variety of sounds and styles present here, there’s the underlying warmth and confidence that wraps the entire recording up like a blanket. From the minute the KC Sisters kick off the EP with the rocking rhythm “I’m Diggin’ It”, there’s a sense of palpable and unified emotion driving each song.

“Stampede” sees the group launch themselves into an up-tempo fiddle extravaganza of complex call and response melodies that are as captivating as they are invigorating. I can’t think of a single moment, while listening to this song, that I did not tap my feet.

“Empty Promises” forges a luscious ballad featuring rich string lines, a dominating piano rhythm, and a powerful lead vocal. All embellished with resonating harmonies and dynamic chord progressions. The song manages to craft an affecting and interesting tale of what was, what is, and what isn’t meant to be.

“Walk with Me” comes bouncing in on a jangly guitar and swirling organ backdrop, which is followed by some intense and fiery lead guitar interludes supporting the uplifting melody runs. The result is sparkling, exuberant verses and choruses that are nothing short of spectacular in their execution.

“Still Remember” delivers yet another touching ballad that allows the KC Sisters’ considerable vocal gifts to blossom. Melding pop’s lush instrumentals with country’s emotional intensity, the KC Sisters craft a sound that should appeal to a wide cross-section of listeners. By painting in so many vivid lyrical details, one easily gets a crystal-clear picture of the sadness experienced by the singers.

The KC Sisters leave the EP’s final slot for the recording’s centerpiece, “Please Mr. Postman” – a song first brought to the fore in 1961 by The Marvelettes. The track also went on to impact audiences in versions by The Beatles, The Carpenters, and Barry Cowsill among others.

In contrast to their illustrious predecessors, the KC Sisters slow down their version a notch, and concentrate on bringing out the core melody, harmony and meaning of the song. The girls deliver a smooth, lush and engaging cover that sounds equally professional, as it does tuneful and entertaining.

They practically apply a modern sheen to a classic song without abandoning its original nuance and sparkle. The KC Sisters’ everything-in-its-proper-place chemistry is undeniable, and every bit as impacting as the original, and subsequent commercially successful versions of “Please Mr. Postman”. Talented and charming, the KC Sisters can more than hold their own in today’s image-obsessed pop realm.

Keep a lookout for the KC Sisters, who this year will be profiled in a one-hour docutainment, “The Girlhood”, paying tribute to the girl groups of the 1960s. - JamSphere


"The KC Sisters Cover Of “You Can’t Hurry Love”"

The effervescent sounds of the KC Sisters are a marvelous musical phenomenon. I had the blessed opportunity of getting familiar with this siblingship of chorale while reviewing their epic cover of Please Mr. Postman. The KC Sisters have put together another sensational offering in their cover of You Can’t Hurry Love by The Supremes.

The KC Sisters add some youthful vigor to the 1966 classic tune. The group’s refreshing bright sound backed by inventive instrumentation provides a charming variation of the original song’s structure and a whole new experience in pop-soul music that is truly memorable. The KC Sisters have a distinct and pristine brand, yet they are able to courageously cover a song of multi-generational caliber like You Can’t Hurry Love with a brilliance that puts this melody through the fountain of youth called a place in our hearts. https://kcsisters.com/ - Warlock Asylum International News

Bio

Having shared their dynamic, harmony driven vocal and instrumental excitement in hundreds of performances throughout their home state of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, and Tennessee, the multi-talented five-some The KC Sisters are putting a fresh new spin on the term “Sister Act.” Harkening back to the heyday of family groups, with a rootsy, Americana sound that incorporates folk, country, gospel, R&B and jazz, the Casey siblings are now emerging as recording artists with the release of their debut EP featuring the original vocal ballad “Still Remember” and the lively, multiple violin driven instrumental “Stamped”, soulful “Empty Promises” as well as the title track "Walk with Me". 

What sets The KC Sisters apart from any other group of musical siblings or indie bands is their musical diversity, transcendent ease with three and four part harmonies, and the fact that each sister is a multi-talented vocalist and musician skilled in a variety of instruments. Deanna (21) and Noelle (20), who wrote “Still Remember” with their father, the group’s producer and arranger Chris Casey, play violin, piano, drums, guitar and bass. Their younger sisters are 18 year old Tasha (violin, drums, piano, bass) and 15 year olds Elise (violin, cello, guitar, bass, piano, drums) and Kathleen (violin, guitar, bass, drums, piano). Their shows include multi-harmonized vocals, instrumentals, country fiddling, a cappella hymns, pop, jazz, standards and country music.

Over the past few years, The KC Sisters have developed an enthusiastic regional fan base via their numerous appearances. In September 2018, The KC Sisters began working with music producer Pat Holt of Nashville and recorded their latest Ep "Walk With Me". Their newest project will be a tribute the the girl groups of the 1960's and include a documentary as well as an accompanying EP.
