I discovered The Staves on a friend’s Facebook page, and I’m hooked. This is some of the most flawless live harmony I’ve ever heard. I wanna be a Stave! Unfortunately, it’s a group you need to be born into. They are sisters from Watford, Hertfordshire, England, which may be at least part of why their voices fit together so perfectly. It gives me chills!
“Counting the winters
Numb to the cold
Searching the valley
For secrets untold
The mountains are children
To someone so old”
Excerpt from “The Motherlode” by The Staves
These are some of the tightest harmonies I’ve ever heard (and I listen to a LOT of singing!). I find myself moved to tears every time I listen because it is such perfect music. I hope you enjoy them as much as I am.
