Album Notes
After shows, people occasionally come up to the Sometimes Family with a question: “Hey, are you guys really related?” It might seem silly but, watching the group together, they communicate in a way that begs the question. The group shares a musical bond that is reflected both onstage and in how they enjoy performing the music of songwriter Rebecca Sometimes. Sometimes writes with both delicacy and intensity, moving from pretty melodies and simple lines to belted-out soul and blues numbers.

The music of the Sometimes Family ranges from rock to blues, soul to doo-wop, complete with three-part harmony. Coming from varied musical backgrounds, each member brings different influences to the group, creating an eclectic mix that works unexpectedly well. Steve Schuster, originally a guitarist, plays the bass. A sensitive and accurate musician, his subtle suggestions always bear consideration. Rebecca Sometimes has never wanted more than to create good songs. A guitar player since sixth grade, her songs reflect years of dedication to the instrument. Mollie Hayward comes from a classical flute background, and has enjoyed expanding her musical ideas in the brand-new world of “being in a band.” Julius Otto began on guitar and mandolin, then found himself wanting to play more and more types of music. He began to play keyboards and percussion, eventually joining up with the Sometimes Family to add the distinctive organ sound. James Defrain has collaborated with Rebecca and Steve in the past and brings creativity and backbone to the group.

The Sometimes Family can be sweet and delicate or gritty and soulful. Never saccharine, always unexpected, their music is a distinctive and fresh take on soul, blues, and rock.
