The Sweet Potatoes

The Sweet Potatoes come out of Southern California to dish up their own unique blend of country, folk and homespun Americana. Featuring acoustic guitars, ukulele accordion and harmonica, this trio will bring a smile to your face with their sweet harmonies and finely crafted songwriting. Songwriters Laura Hall and Kelly Macleod write original music rooted in the family ties that made them the women they are today; songs about finding and appreciating love, having faith, family and home. Their writing is influenced by strong female singer/songwriters such as Emmylou Harris, Patti Griffin and Linda Ronstadt.

Kelly Macleod (writer, vocals, guitar) cut her teeth on the road after being discovered by Eddie Van Halen while singing at a local bar in Shreveport, La. Eddie brought her band, “Private Life” on a world tour with him, and produced their 2 albums. Laura Hall (writer, vocals, guitar, accordion, ukulele) is best known as the improvisational pianist on the hit TV show, "Whose Line is it Anyway", and came up in the acoustic music scene in Chicago, playing in bands with Michael Smith, Buddy Mondlock and Tim Grimm.

The Sweet Potatoes came together after Kelly and Rick Hall (bass, harmonica, vocals) co-starred in, and Laura did the score for, an indie film Rick wrote. Out of that collaborative process, the women starting writing together, soon making their debut cd. After a few years of playing together every chance they get, they're back with a second cd, with an even more sure voice and sense of who they are as a band. Although they're all old hands at performing, this is the new music from their hearts. These are the songs that really tell their stories, all with sweet harmonies and a touch of twang.
