“The harmonies, the attitude, the musicianship. These 3 young ladies absolutely KILL it and do so without breaking a sweat… This trio is probably my personal favorite new act of the year.” -Red Line Roots (http://redlineroots.com/)
“…An impressive, multi-talented, all-female bluegrass group featuring tight soaring harmonies, clever songwriting, and an old timey vibe.” -Glide Magazine, http://glidemagazine.com/
Lula Wiles are comprised of two fiddles, two guitars, one doghouse bass, and three intertwining voices. Their repertoire reaches across the breadth of American roots music, from centuries-old Appalachian ballads to classic country to contemporary Americana songwriting. At a fiddle camp in the woods of Maine, their shared home state, Ellie and Isa met as kids and began playing songs and traditional fiddle tunes together. As both young women found their way to Boston’s vibrant acoustic music scene, their electrifying musical chemistry seemed to demand an audience, and they began performing together in early 2013. Lula Wiles were born when upright bassist Mali Obomsawin– a fellow Mainer and fiddle camper schooled in folk, jazz, and pop– joined the band a year later. They bring soul, energy, depth, and effervescent vocal harmonies to honest songs that blend the old and the new. Lula Wiles have performed at One Longfellow Square, Club Passim, Fresh Grass Festival, and Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival. They were recently named the Red Line Roots “Favorite Find of 2014,” and they were awarded a grant from the Iguana Music Fund to make their debut album.
