{"key":"8184","name":"The Saturdays","bio":"The Saturdays are a pop group formed in the United Kingdom in 2007, comprising Una Healy, Mollie King, Frankie Sandford, Vanessa White and Rochelle Wiseman. Songfacts reports that they decided on calling themselves 'The Saturdays' as it sounded fun and different to the other girl bands. They didn't want the name to reference their gender, like Girls Aloud, The Spice Girls or Sugababes.The Saturdays made their recording debut in 2007 under the record label Fascination Records, a sub-division of Polydor Records. Their debut album, Chasing Lights, produced five UK Top 25 singles. The band embarked on their first headlining UK tour, called 'The Work Tour', in June 2009.Their first single, titled If This Is Love was released on 28th July 2008 and entered the UK chart at #8 where it peaked. It reached #33 on the Eurochart Hot 100 singles. The single's sold around 90,000 copies to date. The second single, Up, was released on 13 October 2008. It debuted on the UK singles chart at #5, where it peaked, #11 on the Irish singles chart and #15 on the Eurochart Hot 100 singles. The single was certified as Silver and sold over 285,000 copies to date. The third single was released on January 4th 2009 and was called Issues. The chorus' lyrics had to be changed as the word \"slap\" sounded too close to the word \"stab\", and the band didn't want to condone violence. It was later changed to \"leave\". The single entered the UK chart at #84 and peaked at #4. It managed to hit #14 in Ireland and #21 in Europe. Their fourth single, Just Can't Get Enough, was the official Comic Relief single in 2009. It was a cover of the Depeche Mode song with the same name. It entered and peaked in the chart at #2, giving The Saturdays their highest charted position to date, and their 4th consecutive top 10 hit in the UK. Their 5th single was called Work. It was released on June 29th 2009 and peaked at #22 on the UK singles chart. Chasing Lights was released on October 27th 2008 and re-released on March 16th 2009 including the Comic Relief single. It entered the UK album chart at #11, peaking at #9 and was certified Platinum, selling over 300,000 copies. It also reached #34 in Ireland and #46 in Europe.The Saturdays' second album, Wordshaker, was released October 12th 2009. The first single from Wordshaker was released on October 5th 2009.

{"key":"8198","name":"Atomic Kitten","bio":"Atomic Kitten were an English girl group, first established in 1997 in Liverpool. The original line-up featured, Liz McClarnon, Kerry Katona and Heidi Range (now in the Sugababes), but Range decided to quit and was replaced by Natasha Hamilton. Jenny Frost (formerly of Precious) replaced Katona in 2001. Hamilton, McClarnon & Frost were the final and most successful line-up of the group.Atomic Kitten had three UK number one singles; Whole Again, the fourth best selling single by a girl group of all time; Eternal Flame and The Tide Is High (Get the Feeling). They also had two UK number one albums, Right Now, a re-issue of their debut album, and Feels So Good, both going double platinum in the UK alone. Atomic Kitten sold over 10 million records worldwide. In terms of sales, Atomic Kitten are the one of the most successful European girl groups of the twenty first century, alongside the Sugababes.The group's first single, Right Now, debuted in December 1999 and reached the UK Top 10. After their initial success, Atomic Kitten performed an Asian tour and scored their first number one hit there with Cradle. The album, also titled Right Now, was first released in Japan on 16 March 2000, and subsequently released in the United Kingdom on 23 October 2000 with a slightly modified track list. In 2000, the group also recorded a cover version of The Locomotion for the movie Thomas and the Magic Railroad.The Right Now album was unsuccessful upon its first release, peaking only at #39 in the UK album chart. Initially, there were no plans to focus on the global market and Atomic Kitten's record label, Innocent Records, was even considering dropping them because of their limited success. However, the record company were persuaded to allow the group to record one more single. The single, Whole Again, became their first no. 1 hit in the UK in 2001, and stayed at the top for four consecutive weeks. Due to this success, \"Whole Again\" was released worldwide, and reached #1 in 18 other countries. The song and video for \"Whole Again\" originally featured Kerry Katona; however, she left the group several days prior to the number-one position because of her pregnancy. The single was remade when Jenny Frost was added to the line-up as Katona's replacement. This led to a decision to partially re-record and re-release the album, which then went to no. 1 in August 2001. The next single, Eternal Flame, a cover version of the 1989 hit by The Bangles, also became a no.1 hit in several countries, and sold a million copies worldwide.Following the success of \"Right Now\", a new album, Feels So Good, was recorded. The songwriting and production agreement with Andy McCluskey was an increasing source of tension within the group, and the girls decided to terminate the contract with McCluskey halfway through the recording of the album.The first single off the album was It's OK!. Even though this song performed well in the charts, securing a No. 3 position in the United Kingdom, and reaching the top 20 in many other countries, it was the next single The Tide Is High (Get the Feeling), a remake of the 1965 song by The Paragons (also made famous by Blondie in 1980), which attained Atomic Kitten their third number-one single in their homeland. The single became the Kitten's second largest hit, getting into the top 10 in over 25 countries. In April 2002, Hamilton announced that she was pregnant, but rather than leave the group, she opted to continue with the scheduled 2002 tour. Hamilton filmed the music video for \"The Tide Is High (Get the Feeling)\", and made an appearance at Party in the Park before finally going on pregnancy leave.In April 2003, the group released the album, Atomic Kitten in the United States. Until that time, the group had not focused on the American market, and the album consisted of tracks from their first two albums, Right Now and Feels So Good. Promotion for the album began with the single, The Tide Is High (Get The Feeling), appearing on the soundtrack for the Disney film, \"The Lizzie McGuire Movie\" starring Hilary Duff, and managed to debut and peak at #42. However, the single plummeted to #88 in it's second week. In addition, after the album only managed to peak at #102 on the US Billboard 200, it was decided the group would focus solely on the European, Oceanian, and Asian markets.Before recording their third album, Kool & The Gang approached the group about a collaboration of their hit Ladies Night and were looking for a girl group to sing the lyrics. Atomic Kitten liked the idea and enquired whether they could use it for their next album which was subsequently named Ladies Night in honour of this collaboration.Their first single of the album, excluding Be with You, was If You Come to Me. It secured a #3 position on the UK top 40. It became Atomic Kitten's 6th best selling single in the United Kingdom for sales of 180,000 copies. Moreover, \"If You Come to Me\" reached the top 30 in every single country it charted, and reached the top 10 in over 10 countries.Atomic Kitten spent late 2002 and early 2003 in the studio recording their third and final studio album. Up until the recording of Ladies Night, the group mainly relied on songwriters, though they had occasionally co-written songs featured on their albums. While recording Ladies Night, they decided to be directly involved in the creation of eight of the fifteen songs. Ladies Night was released on 10 November 2003, and peaked at no.5 in the UK album chart.In early 2004, a tour to support the Ladies Night album and the upcoming release of their Greatest Hits album was planned. Shortly before the tour kicked off, the group announced they would be taking an extended break after the completion of the tour.On 23 January 2004, Natasha Hamilton decided to devote more time to her young son and wanted to take a hiatus from the group. Atomic Kitten released the single Someone Like Me\/Right Now 2004\" as a \"goodbye\" to their fans. The reunited on Valentine's Day 2005 to release the charity single Cradle 2005\", a new version of the original song from their album Right Now which was a no. 1 hit in Asia back in 2000. \"Cradle 2005\" peaked at No. 10, selling 35,000 copies worldwide, with proceeds going to World Vision.In 2005, the group was featured on the soundtrack of Disney's Mulan II with the song (I Wanna Be) Like Other Girls. In 2005, they also performed together in Krakow, Poland on 28 August at the Coca-Cola SoundWave Festival.In 2006, Atomic Kitten recorded a one-off single, All Together Now (Strong Together), in association with Goleo VI, the official mascot of the FIFA World Cup 2006. The track is taken from The Official FIFA World Cup Album and was released for digital download and in CD form on 6 June 2006, in Germany, where the World Cup was held ten days later. The single was listed by the HMV website for physical release in the UK many weeks prior to the competition, but was later withdrawn due to the amount of competing football records that were being released at that time. The proceeds of the single went to SOS Children's Villages.On 4 December 2006, the group reunited again for a one-off performance of \"Whole Again\" and two other songs at a benefit concert for the Michael Shields appeal at the Liverpool Empire Theatre.On 31 December 2006, Atomic Kitten performed at the Ocean Terminal in Hong Kong at Nokia's New Year's Eve celebration. The marked their second international appearance since their extended break in 2004.Atomic Kitten released another charity single, Anyone Who Had A Heart on 27 January 2008, a version of Dionne Warwick's 1963 hit as part of the Liverpool Number One Project.

{"key":"38641","name":"The Crystals","bio":"Two artists exist by this name:1) The Crystals were one of the most successful girl groups of the early 60s, Known for their association with producer Phil Spector, they had several well-remembered hit singles such as \"He's A Rebel\", \"Da Doo Ron Ron\", and \"Then He Kissed Me\". They were also trailblazers for many later African-American pop artists.2) The Crystals was also the name of an obscure doo-wop group organised by the enigmatic Sun Ra in the mid-50s. Little is known about them. However, their tune \"Honey In The Bee Box\" was featured in the compilation album 'Interplanetary Melodies' on Norton Records, an album which has received critical acclaim.3). If you are here for the Italian progressive rock band Crystals, they are not \"The Crystals\". Refer to the Crystals band page for more information and please fix your tags.\u2014\u2014-In the late 50s, Barbara Alston, Mary Thomas, Delores \"Dee Dee\" Kennibrew, Merna Girard and Patricia \"Patsy\" Wright formed a singing project called \"The Crystals\" in high school. Under the leadership of Alston's uncle, Benny Wells, they wanted to aim for the big time. Soon, the quintet signed with Phil Spector's label Philles Records. Spector then chose Alston to be the group's lead singer, which made her very uncomfortable since she had a fear of singing in front of audiences.Their first hit was 1961's \"There's No Other Like My Baby\". This song's B-side \"Oh Yeah, Maybe Baby\" (featuring Wright on lead) and the following single \"Uptown\" were topical and socially-aware pieces about growing up in the ghetto. After the success of \"Uptown\", a pregnant Girard was replaced by Dolores \"LaLa\" Brooks. The next single was 1962's \"He Hit Me (And It Felt Like a Kiss)\", still widely remembered though only rarely played on the radio due to the touchy subject matter of spousal abuse. Sales were sluggish.Soon after \"He Hit Me\" flopped, Phil Spector began recording singer Darlene Love and her backing group The Blossoms under the name \"The Crystals\". Legend has it that the real Crystals were not able to travel from New York to Los Angeles fast enough to suit the LA-based Spector, who wanted to quickly record and release \"He's a Rebel\" (written by Gene Pitney) before anyone else had a chance to cover it and have a hit with it. The Crystals were unavailable, but Love and the Blossoms were also based in LA, so Spector recorded them and put the record out under The Crystals' banner.\"He's A Rebel\" is perhaps the Crystals' most well-remembered and beloved songs, and one of the most enduring of the girl group genre. It was also their only US #1 hit. The follow-up Crystals single, \"He's Sure the Boy I Love\", in actuality also featured Love and The Blossoms.The next single credited to The Crystals is one of the rarest \u2013 and also possibly the strangest \u2013 in rock music history. Reports vary as to the actual motivation behind the recording, but most agree that Phil Spector was looking for a way to annoy former business partner Lester Sill. What he came up with was a nearly six-minute song called \"Let's Dance The Screw - Part I\", which would be unplayable on 1963 radio. The record featured simple instrumentation (very much unlike Spector's famous Wall of Sound production style), repetitive lyrics, and Spector himself intoning the lyric \"Dance The Screw\" numerous times in a deadpan monotone. (The B-side, Part II, was more of the same.) The Crystals sang the song's repetitive verses, though it is unclear if these singers were the 'real' Crystals or The Blossoms.The single was never commercially released, and only a few copies are known to exist (all marked D.J. COPY - NOT FOR SALE). The record was apparently only created to be a bizarre sort of joke at Sill's expense, as a single copy was specially delivered to him in early 1963. Though it's unclear as to the level of their participation in \"Let's Dance The Screw\", the 'real' Crystals definitely began recording again under their own name in 1963. However, Thomas had departed to get married which reduced them to a quartet, and Alston stepped down from the lead spot giving it to Brooks.After \"Let's Dance The Screw\", the group's next release was the classic \"Da Doo Ron Ron.\" According to Darlene Love, the track was originally recorded by The Blossoms, with Love on lead vocal. Prior to release, Spector erased Love's lead vocal and replaced it with a vocal by LaLa Brooks, although he kept the Blossoms' backing vocals in place. The song was a top 10 hit in both the US and the UK, as was the follow-up single \"Then He Kissed Me\" \u2014 the first Crystals single since \"He Hit Me\" to feature all members of the Crystals as a definite group.Both \"Da Doo Ron Ron\" and \"Then He Kissed Me\" were penned by Spector with Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich.Despite the steady flow of hit singles, tensions between Spector and the Crystals mounted. Already unhappy with having been replaced by Love and company on two singles, The Crystals were even more upset when in 1964, Spector began focusing much of his time on rival girl group The Ronettes. Two failed Crystals singles followed, before the band left Spector's Philles Records for Imperial Records later in 1964. 1964 also saw the departure of Wright who was replaced by Frances Collins; toward the end of that year Alston departed leaving the group a trio. They disbanded in 1966. They reunited in 1971 and toured widely in varying incarnations on the oldies circuit; they still occasionally perform today. Kennibrew is the only original Crystal who remained active throughout their touring from the seventies to the present.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/38641_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"34920","name":"Wilson Phillips","bio":"Wilson Phillips was an American pop group made up of Carnie Wilson, Wendy Wilson and Chynna Phillips. Although their success in the early 1990s was brief, they scored four Grammy Award nominations, two American Music Award nominations and a Billboard Music Award, they are also famous for being the offspring of prominent musicians; the Wilsons are the daughters of Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys, while Phillips's parents are John Phillips and Michelle Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas.The Wilson sisters and Phillips were friends from childhood, growing up in southern California in the 1970's and 1980's. The three shared a love of music and songwriting, and developed their own style of vocal harmonies. In 1989, producer Glen Ballard and SBK Records signed the trio to a record deal.Wilson Phillips released their debut album Wilson Phillips in 1990. They shot to fame with their debut single, the # 1 hit \"Hold On\". The album was a hit, producing three number one singles and selling 10 million copies worldwide.They released their follow-up album Shadows and Light in 1992. It was much less successful, producing no top ten singles and selling one million copies. Shortly after, the group decided to split up.During the next decade, the group went their separate ways. Chynna Phillips released a solo album, \"Naked and Sacred\" in 1995, while the Wilson sisters released a Christmas album in 1993 and an album \"The Wilsons\" in 1997. Carnie also went on to host her own television talk show, while Phillips married actor William Baldwin. A \"Greatest Hits\" album was released in 2000, although the group did not officially reunite for this release. Carnie made headlines in 1999 when she underwent gastric bypass surgery live on the internet and lost over 20 dress sizes.Wilson Phillips reunited in 2004 to release California, an album of cover songs. A single, 'Go Your Own Way,' a remake of the original by Fleetwood Mac, peaked at #13 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. The album debuted at #35 on the charts with 31,000 copies sold but due to the lack of promotion the album has yet to reach sales of 100,000 copies. In New Zealand the album was a surprise hit, reaching the top 10 and amassing gold sales following 'Go Your Own Way' topping the adult contemporary radio chart for several weeks.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/34920_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"38584","name":"The Chiffons","bio":"The Chiffons are an all girl group originating from New York, New York in 1960, best known for their hit pop singles such as \"One Fine Day\" and \"Sweet Talkin' Guy\" that are staples of oldies radio. Foreshadowing the later success of many African-American pop and soul artists of the period, the Chiffons' sassy flair made them one of the top girl groups of the early 60s.This all got started when the girls met at James Monroe High School in the Bronx, New York. Lead singer Judy Craig was a mere 14-year-old while Patricia Bennett and Barbara Lee were both only 13, all of them facing a lot of challenges if they wanted to be stars. Yet they felt enough determination to hook up with writer\/manager Ronnie Mack and sign with Big Deal Records. Though still an embryonic group, their version of \"Tonight's the Night\" went up to #76 in September 1960, showing the group's potential. Soon their trademark tight harmonies, coupled with their high-stepping confidence and the production duo Gerry Goffin and Carole King writing for them, earned the Chiffons had popular success in song after song.Made up of the aforementioned Judy Craig, Patricia Bennett, and Barbara Lee at first, Sylvia Peterson of Little Jimmie And The Tops came into the group in 1963. That year, their song \"He's So Fine\" was the #1 record on both the Billboard Pop and R&B charts. The Chiffons' seemed to have completely 'made it', appearing on programs such as 'American Bandstand'.British singer-songwriter George Harrison's 1971 song \"My Sweet Lord\" was musically almost identical, prompting a copyright infringement claim. A judge later found that the ex-Beatle had unintentionally plagiarized the earlier song. The Chiffons went on to record a competing version of \"My Sweet Lord\" in 1975. The case is often cited as one of the most famous and influential legal cases in the music industry.The Chiffons' initial run at success was followed by other notable tunes such as the aforementioned \"One Fine Day\" as well as the songs \"Sweet Talkin' Guy\", \"A Love So Fine\", and \"I Have a Boyfriend\". Although many of their recordings were derivative of the period, fans appreciated their take on the contemporary pop sound. Their Top 40 single \"I Have A Boyfriend\" was notably playing on Dallas station KLIF on November 22, 1963 and was interrupted by the first radio bulletins of the JFK assassination.The group also released material under the title 'The Four Pennies' that explored different musical styles. Though finding some fans, the phantom artist failed to break through commercially. The Chiffons themselves faced changing musical tides with the British invasion and the rise of many different trends, and their run of popular success appeared to have pretty much come to an end when the 70s began.Though Craig left the Chiffons, they continued on as a trio. As the years passed, the group toured in the 'oldies circuit'. In 1992, Lee died from a heart attack the day before her 45th birthday. While that seemed to have put an end to the group, Craig decided to return. Peterson retired shortly thereafter and was replaced by Connie Harvey. Harvey has since left to pursue a solo career with Bennett also retiring. Craig continued on with replacement backup singers. After the turn of the millennium, Craig has still been touring as the Chiffons with her daughter and her niece by her side, performing at select shows throughout the U.S. and internationally.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/38584_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

{"key":"38540","name":"Martika","bio":"Marta Marrero (born May 18, 1969 in Whittier, California, USA), better known as Martika, is a Cuban-American pop singer. As a child she dabbled in acting making her film debut as one of the dancing orphans in the film version of \"Annie\". As a teen she would star as 'Gloria' on the syndicated children's variety show 'Kids Incorporated'. After outgrowing her role, Martika would turn her focus towards her first love, music.Hooking up w\/ producer Michael Jay, Martika landed a deal with Columbia Records. Martika's self-titled debut album was released in the fall of 1988. But it wasn't until 1989 that she broke through in a big way. By January her debut single \"More Than You Know\" was a US Top 20 smash. Her second single, a haunting ballad about addiction, entitled \"Toy Soldiers\" spent 2 weeks at #1 in the US during the summer of 1989. Up next was a dance\/rock version of the Carole King classic \"I Feel The Earth Move\" which would eventually score Martika her 3rd Top 40 US hit. This song as well as her previous singles also became huge hits all over the world by charting high in the UK, Australia, Japan and Spain just to name a few. A fourth single was released in Europe and Australia entitled \"Water\".After the success of her debut, her label compiled a 4 song EP of Spanish language versions of 3 of her hits (\"Water\" was included as well but in it's bilingual original state). It was during this time that Martika would perform throughout many Spanish speaking countries, and was heavily promoted to the US Latino market.During the fall of 1990, Martika returned briefly to acting playing Dahlia Mendez on the CBS drama \"Wiseguy\". Playing a sultry nightclub singer & girlfriend to the then new lead Steven Bauer, Martika turned heads w\/ her sexy outfits & latin jazz standards sprinkled throughout the show. Much like her character's untimely death, the show also was cancelled after failing to catch on with viewers. Luckily for Martika all 4 of her episodes aired.Martika followed up her debut (which eventually went gold in the US) with 1991's \"Martika's Kitchen\". Led by the first single, \"Love\u2026Thy Will Be Done\", a prayer that Martika had written which would later be turned into a song by Prince, Martika would find herself once again on the charts. The song peaked at #10 in the US and was a #1 hit in Australia. Unfortunately a sophmore slump of sorts took its toll on what could have been a huge hit album. The 2nd single, a funky Prince penned and produced tune, failed to set the charts on fire and stalled at #98 in the US. However it did fare better in Europe making it all the way to #1 in Spain. A third single, the C+C Music Factory produced \"Coloured Kisses\", failed to chart in the US but was a modest hit internationally. Two more singles would see the light of day in Europe, a club only release of yet another Prince produced track \"Spirit\" made the rounds as did a 4th single \"Safe In The Arms Of Love\".It was during 1992 that Martika would walk away from her music career. After a headlining stint at the Expo Sevilla in Sevilla, Spain, Martika walked off the stage and began a long hiatus from music. Rumors of her whereabouts would range from the weird to plain ridiculous. During this time Martika wrote songs for several artists (Maria Nyler, Tevin Campbell, etc.) as well as lending her voice to several projects (C+C Music Factory's \"M\u00fasica es mi vida\" and the Conga Club's \"The Happy Song\" to name a few). But it was not until 1999 that Martika would come out of musical obscurity by launching a website (the new defunct martika.net) and talk of a new album brought many fans out of the woodwork so to say. At this time several demos leaked on the internet and she even went as far as to release an internet only single \"The Journey\" available exclusively on mp3.com.This brief return sort of came and went and it wasn't until the beginning of this decade that Martika would again return. This time as 1\/2 of the musical duo Oppera. Along with her musical partner (and husband) Michael Mozart, the duo released their internet only debut \"Violince\". Since they have released a self-titled follow-up, opened for Pat Benatar.In 2010 Martika, under the name Vida Edit, starred in the internet series J8DED along w\/ her hubby Michael Daemon. The show is currently on hiatus.Martika is currently working on her first solo album in 20 years. It will see her return to her dance\/pop roots. Expect a fall 2011 release.Also of note rapper Eminem sampled Martika's \"Toy Soldiers\" in his 2004 hit \"Like Toy Soldiers\", thus resparking some interest in this often ignored pop star. To boot, in 2007 British shoegaze\/alternative rock band My Vitriol covered the song for their A Pyrrhic Victory EP.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/38540_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"please contact"}

20,000 - 50,000
{"key":"5087","name":"SHeDAISY","bio":"It has always been about the songs. SHeDAISY\u2019s place in the music world begins with Kristyn Osborn's songwriting, with her ability to probe her psyche and, by extension, ours. The fact that she and sisters Kelsi and Kassidy are equally adept at placing those songs in intriguing and memorable settings, at making them come alive in the studio and on stage, is the rest of the multi-platinum equation. As their winding career path makes clear, though, nothing important is ever established or sustained without struggle and re-evaluation, without the willingness to adjust course now and then. Theirs has been a journey for which they have drawn strength from both success and misadventure, turning missteps into lessons and challenge into triumph. The result is a hard-won artistic maturity, and the CD that embodies the latest phase of their journey, Fortuneteller's Melody, represents a liberating step forward. The process began, as always, with Kristyn's songwriting. As Kelsi and Kassidy took to the road for a radio tour accompanying the release of Sweet Right Here, a rebound record which went gold and gave the trio renewed momentum, Kristyn spent more than three months turning the stuff of life into art with the help of collaborators that included Don Schlitz and Sheryl Crow. From there, though, everything was new. The trio chose to work with Grammy producer of the year and another Kristyn songwriting collaborator, John Shanks, known for his work with Melissa Etheridge, Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson, Alanis Morissette, Bon Jovi and many others. In working with him, they re-invented the way they make records: instead of the meticulous planning that went into earlier efforts, they worked almost off-the-cuff. \"We would walk into the studio this time not knowing the song,\" says Kristyn. \"John and I would be finishing one in the other room then we\u2019d go straight in and record it. Kassidy might learn it as I was finishing the lyric. We were allowing the songs themselves to take control, rather than our arrangements of the song.\" \"It freaked me out because I love to be prepared,\" says Kassidy. \"With the other records, we would arrange songs for a month and then go into the studio totally ready, but I surprised myself this time. There's freedom in this approach, and there's something great and fresh about that.\" The result was a recording process that echoed the approach of songwriting. \"It forces you to draw from a place that's beyond the surface,\" says Kristyn. \"You find things in yourself that you didn't know were there. For Kassidy, it's her voice. 'Where are those licks going to come from?' 'Where is the soul going to come from in the music?' John just made us find it.\" What held it all together was the consistency of voice in Kristyn's writing, the nuanced look at life, love and redemption that made up the project's songs. \"This is about relationships,\" she says. \"It's about life and love and being on the road and being in a family and what happens when there's drama and trouble and tragedy. You can see the growth of the character and the life experience, and then you see the conclusion. It's also very honest. I don't feel like I'm shielding the truth here.\" She calls it \"a grown-up record with elements of fun and youthfulness.\" The upshot is that Fortuneteller's Melody, recorded in Los Angeles and Nashville, unfolds like no SHeDAISY album before it. \"In our other records,\" says Kristyn, \"we talk about each song being a little snapshot or a mini-movie, but this new record presents an entire story, from song one through twelve, with each bleeding into the next.\" It is a story drawn from experience. \"I was always a little tentative about just throwing everything out there,\" says Kristyn, \"especially when it's really personal. These are all journals for the most part, but that is the blessing and the curse of writing your own material and letting people see what it's like on the inside of you rather than just the outside. I don't feel so restricted this time. I feel like we don't have anything to lose. We have a lot to say and we are in a really liberating place right now, so it was just a different approach. I don't need to mask anything. I have nothing to worry about. It feels good.\" As much of a departure as it is, Fortuneteller's Melody is, given their history, the natural next step in SHeDAISY\u2019s incredible journey. Kristyn, Kelsi and Kassidy Osborn grew up in Magna, Utah, raised, as their father says, \"on the three B's\u2013Beach Boys, Beatles and Beethoven.\" Kelsi and Kassidy sang and performed in local theater, then began singing at retirement homes, churches, and in the neighborhood. Kristyn took part for a while, lost interest during high school, then regained it during a trip to New York to accompany Kelsi on a TV audition. Kristyn then accompanied her father to Nashville for a music business seminar, and a few months later, with Kelsi and Kassidy still in junior high, they moved to Music City. Within a few months they had landed and lost a record deal, recording an unreleased album. They spent five years working in mall department stores and playing clubs at night, honing their craft, while Kristyn and Kelsi began attending classes at a local university to learn every aspect of the business. \"I learned how we had been taken advantage of,\" Kristyn says. \"We recorded a project for RCA that never got released. That album was missing something and it taught me a lesson. We did what we were told. We didn't stand up for ourselves because we were so young. We were told to do a song and we did it. There were only three of our songs on there.\" Gradually, their hard work and Kristyn's education paid off and, in 1997, they signed with Lyric Street Records. Their first album, The Whole Shebang, rode unabashed exuberance, clever writing and aural brilliance to double platinum status, launching SHeDAISY into the mainstream of modern country music. \"We had years to prepare for that record,\" says Kelsi, \"and there was no one saying, 'You can't produce a demo like that.' When we hooked up with Dann Huff, he helped those demos come to life even more. We just put it out and said, 'Here is our music.'\" Fans and radio were all over the record and doors swung open everywhere. \"Little Good-Byes,\" \"This Woman Needs,\" \"I Will\u2026But\" and \"Lucky 4 You (Tonight I'm Just Me)\" all reached the Top 10. Nominations poured in from the Grammys, the CMA, the ACM, the American Music Awards and the Blockbuster Music Awards. The Whole Shebang spent 99 weeks on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. The group released a re-mixed version of the LP and a well-received Christmas album. \"I think we were spoiled in the beginning,\" says Kassidy. \"Once you've had that, you don't want to settle for less. The good thing is that means you'll keep trying to do better.\" \"Knock On The Sky was much more of a science experiment,\" says Kristyn, \"and that was really exciting\u2013'Let's try this' and 'Let's do that' and 'What if we stack these vocals?', but some people couldn't get past the sound to be able to hear the songs themselves. Sometimes when there's too much of a sheen people won't always take the time to hear what you're saying.\" Kristyn calls Sweet Right Here, their third release, \"our trampoline\u2013a bounce-back. We stepped back sonically a little bit, and the record reflected the fact that things were a bit simpler in our lives.\" Hits like \"Passenger Seat,\" the hilariously self-referential \"Don't Worry 'Bout A Thing,\" and \"Come Home Soon,\" a song and video still treasured by the families of servicemen and women, recaptured much of the magic. \"I think we came a long way back,\" says Kassidy. \"We were able to re-establish ourselves with radio and our fans after more than two years without a new radio hit. Going gold was really a goal for us, and I think with this new record we will keep accelerating and reach higher goals.\" Part of that acceleration is taking place on the road. The trio chose not to tour early on, preferring to wait until they had released more hits. \"We had so many opportunities to go on the road,\" says Kristyn. \"If we'd started six years ago developing a live show, we'd be in a different place now, but we are in essence starting from scratch in the last couple of years. But that also means it's as enjoyable as when you're starting brand new. We're back in fresh that place and it's really nice.\" \"We've been working with this band now for two years,\" says Kristyn. \"Our focus is on the live show, convincing people we can pull it off. We don't have any bells and whistles, we don't have any sets that move and we have no flames. We have no explosions. It's just a great show without all that stuff and we're proud of it. Our next step is to get out there in front of a lot more people.\" Theirs is the gift of self-confidence born of the rock-solid foundations of family and faith, and the knowledge that while they continue to learn, they have given their all to their recorded output. It lets them stretch each time they re-enter the studio. \"Each record has got to be a challenge,\" says Kristyn. \"We don't want it to be easy. This time out, we're not afraid of anything. It's a different world that we're all breathing in. I think we feel ready to say it, to tell it like it is, and we're proud of it.\"\t The result is a CD that showcases the best of one of modern country music's most innovative and compelling acts, one that adds an exciting new chapter to their legacy.","featuredImage":"http:\/\/assets.allamericanmusic.com\/images\/5087_h_0.jpg","feeRange":"20,000 - 50,000"}
