ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Emmons Sisters are playing music that will bring a whole new future to bluegrass music. That’s why they play Tomorrow’s Bluegrass, Today!

The audience may be seeing four young sisters, ages 13, 15, 17, and 19, but they’re listening to enthusiastic musicians playing energetic bluegrass music while singing beautiful soaring harmonies to audiences of all ages.

These sisters write their own bluegrass gospel music, weaving in influences of some of their favorite bluegrass artists such as Alison Krauss and Union Station, Nickel Creek, Cherryholmes, and Rhonda Vincent & The Rage, yet still allowing their own distinct sound to stand true.

Hitting the stage in 2002, they’ve performed at hundreds of venues since their first appearance, which was opening the Gospel Night at the 2002 Grants Pass Concerts in the Park. At each bluegrass festival and concert, the audiences are blown away by their professionalism and their stage presence.

Besides entertaining for live audiences, The Emmons Sisters have had the privilege of recording their original songs for over 90 episodes of television shows on three different networks shown worldwide.

The Emmons Sisters have completed four CDs. “Possibilities” was recorded in 2004 (recorded at Log Cabin Studios), “God’s Gift” was recorded in 2003 (recorded at Log Cabin Studios) and “In The Springtime,” their debut album, was recorded at Mountain View Productions in 2002. Their most recent, "Turning Point," was released in August 2006, and was recorded at Log Cabin Studios. It offers fourteen tracks that will amaze their fans while winning over a new audience of listeners.

Their CDs are available at The Emmons Sisters’ live performances, their website (www.TheEmmonsSisters.com), CD Baby (www.cdbaby.com) and at the following Oregon Stores: It’s A Small World, Plaza Sewing, Listen Here, Heaven on Earth, and Evangel.

Go ahead; take a listen to The Emmons Sisters, the princesses of bluegrass. You will hear the sound of tomorrow’s bluegrass music, being played today.

The Emmons Sisters are based in Grants Pass, Oregon.



And Their Fans Say:

"When I first heard The Emmons Sisters, I was amazed beyond words. Their sweet, yet reverberating voices and original songs truly spoke to my soul. They posses innocence that is inspirational and wisdom beyond their years." –CC from Oregon

“I received it (Possibilities) today and it sounds great. It's incredible how you wrote all of those songs by yourselves, you're all extremely talented. Your beautiful harmonies along with the instruments sound tremendous. In a world where God is not usually part of man’s life, it is so terrific to see young people like you praising God so confidently and maturely through your music. Thank you all so much for keeping bluegrass gospel music alive in the way you do and for giving it that unique sound which I feel so blessed to hear! Your CD is fantastic; a real good example of a close knit bluegrass gospel group - many thanks once again.” –ML from England

“Hi girls! We received our CD on Wednesday and have been listening to it since then. We love it! You now have fans in the desert of So. CA. (I have "Possibilities" stuck in my head!! Sounds SO Nickel Creek!!) You girls keep up the good work!!” –MF from California

“I have been searching for a long time for some good Bluegrass gospel music, and would love to buy all of your CD's. I've checked out your website and I know I will love your music. I am very excited, and looking forward to receiving your music soon. I thank you all so much for producing it! Thanks again, and wishing you all the best.” -SH from Canada

“Listen to The Emmons Sisters. After listening to their music, bluegrass will most certainly become your favorite type of music!” -VK from California

“What you ladies are doing is highly encouraging to us. We pray that God will protect and guide you and help you to bear long-lasting, abundant fruit. I thank God for people like you and hope you'll never allow success and the glory of this world to interfere with making serving and glorifying the Author of your talents your number one priority.” –CW from Japan

“You are in the perfect place God has put you in. You are such a blessing to all who hear and see you.” -NM from Oregon

"Their music speaks straight to my heart and it makes me cry with joy!" –LB from California

This album is another tribute to their talent!
My overview of "Turning Point" by The Emmons Sisters is:
YES...YES ..YES!
The arrangements of The Emmons Sisters is ahead of their time, totally above their years!
How can FOUR sisters harmonize AND play instruments at the same time? The Emmons can do it!
What a wonderful CD. It's back to the basics bluegrass music with the new Emmons Sisters.

... and 1/2 ....Talented, mountain songbirds
Playing Time – 40:18 -- Since their 2004 release of “Possibilities,” the Oregon-based Emmons Sisters have gravitated even closer to the bluegrass idiom on their fourth album put out in 2006 called “Turning Point.” The liner notes begin with a strong declaration of “Bluegrass is true music, and we’ve grown to love it!” Their collaborative original, “Here To Stay” includes lyrics like “People ask why we play like we do. So fast, it takes away the blues. Bluegrass music with its lonesome sound. Just like it, we’re here to stay.” The girls only range in age from 14-20, and they exhibit a musical maturity well beyond your normal teenaged siblings today that may be more tuned into television, video games, or sports. The Emmons Sisters didn’t even start performing as a band until about 2001. Their original songs incorporate standard bluegrass instruments, although the banjo is relegated to a minor role. Their energetic style has a typical formula that incorporates all of them singing in a carefully calibrated manner. While Christina did most of the songwriting and lead singing on their last album, “Turning Point” clearly shows the increased role that Victoria is playing in those areas. On two cuts (“Here To Stay” and “Lullaby”), Stephanie sings lead. Some eclectic variety is imparted to this album with two instrumentals, “Dragonflies”’ and “Braeden in the Briar.”

The Emmons Sisters ask thoughtful questions in a number of their songs. All four girls share lead vocals in “Joshua,” about a friend stricken with cancer, and they inquire “would I be as brave as he?” In an arrangement that just has Christina singing, “Scarlet Sins” asks questions of a different nature such as “where were you when He felt pain, abandonment and shame?” The primary uncertainty of “Waiting is All We Have” revolves around knowing that everything is always in His perfect timing. Their title cut provides guidance when you fall down, when you break. The Emmons’ inquisitive nature is one that translates easily to their singer/songwriter approach to acoustic music. They have some heart-tugging tributes like “Tell The Whole World” that could become the signature piece to symbolize their ministry. An a cappella “Glory Land” sings joyously onto the Lord, and the liner notes indicate it was arranged in the back seat of their family’s car while enroute to Bible study each week. These talented, mountain songbirds kick up their heels, have some plain ol’ fun, and reverently assume devout tones on this album that radiates with youthful exuberance, optimism and love of God.
