Canadian Urban Roots Music....
The core members, Allison Russell and Awna Teixeira, joined forces in late 2006 with musician and luthier, Benny Sidelinger. He built several instruments that the
band plays. Po' Girl showcases a variety of instruments, including gutbucket bass (built by Awna), glockenspiel, clarinet, accordion, banjo, dobro, guitar and piano; twelve in all and all members frequently change instruments with each song, playing with a proficiency that can only be achieved by fanatical practice and a gifted ear.
The talented, touring band has two principal singer/songwriters who front the group. Allison Russell from Montreal and Awna Teixeira from Toronto hit the musical road at a tender age and lived to sing their tales. In the last year they have traveled to 13 countries sharing their "echoes of speakeasy jazz, the western lament and the accordion-strapped ghosts of European folk." These musical gypsies recorded their newest album in Austin this past summer and have produced a sound that is better than any previous Po' Girl album to date.
You'll be happy you own this record - it's a gem.
