The Indigo Girls meets John Mayer (seriously, two girls and a guy), this trio of siblings have rich sonorous harmonies weaving in and out of their catchy, melodic, heartfelt tunes.
Sibling Revelry first gained popularity as an acoustic college band in the 90's, traveling back and forth from their home town (Portland, Oregon) to their college town (BYU, Utah) to perform and record together.
Sibling Revelry, comprised of two sisters (Skye and Courtney Pixton) and a brother (Clayton Pixton), had a sense of humor and rapport with their audience that drew fans of all types to see what was practically a variety show: filled with stories, jokes, skits, and (of course) songs.
They advertised live performances with fliers bearing plucky college-student-targeted statements such as:
"Modern Acoustic Jam (leave earplugs at home)"
"Come treat your ears to the sweet strains of the only set of siblings in the world that never fights! We don't! Really! We swear!"
"When's the last time you heard REAL music? We don't mean that styrofoam stuff that seems to fill you up but makes your stomach sore. We don't mean that stuff that leaves you with a lame faceless smile and a green brain. We don't mean that stuff pumped with ethoxylated monoglycerides and pyridoxine hydrochloride and FD&C Yellow #5. We mean real music -- good old wholesome, hearty, 7-grain stuff. Don't you owe it to yourself during finals? Make your mama proud!"
"enjoying READING DAYS? It has been clinically proven that spending two reading days in a row without seeing a concert causes severe, spontaneous, and unpredictable spasms of the carpii radialis longus (Believe me, you don't want to know what it is). Don't become a statistic."
"SPRING FEVER? --Recent polls indicate that over 90% of Sibling Revelry concert Go-ers are young, vibrant, attractive, single people. Don't doom yourself to single-ness this spring! Come find a significant other before the season passes you by! Now is your chance! Don't be left behind to tiptoe through the tulips... ALONE... "
"Sibling Revelry is so awesome! I could listen to them all day! Their new CD is the coolest! You have to buy it!" ~Clayton's roommate
"I go to every concert! Of course, I have to because I do their sound." ~ Courtney's husband and soundman, Jason
"I certainly don't have anything bad to say about them. Why do you want to know?" ~ a random guy we interviewed
WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
