Music Spotlight: I’m With Her Releases “Little Lies” — Listen Now

I was sent the video below by a team whose name I won’t mention, because I’m not pleased with them. The band, called “I’m With Her” release a new single, entitled, “Little Lies,” and it immediately caught my attention. The harmonies are great, and the folk trio is clearly deserving of praise. But praise isn’t enough. I want their story, their names, their pictures, and their history to write my post, and unfortunately, none of that was sent my way. The solution? I’ve done my own digging, and discovered some interesting data.
The group consists of Sarah Jarosz, Aoife O’ Donovan, and Sara Watkins. As it turns out, Jarosz has released four studio albums, and her most recent entitled ‘Undercurrent’ received two Grammys (Best Folk Album, Best American Roots Performance). I’ve listened to it, and it’s fantastic. Sarah Watkins is a founding member of the band Nikel Creek, whose self-titled breakout album was produced by Alison Krauss and earned two Grammy nominations. They later won a Grammy in 2002 for Best Contemporary Folk Album. Most recently, they were nomination for two Grammys in 2015 for Best American Roots Performance and Best Americana Album (‘A Dotted Line’). Watkins plays the fiddle, and her talent clearly runs in the family, because she played alongside her mandolinist brother in Nikel Creek. She also played percussion while touring with The Decemberists. You can catch her performance at Largo in Los Angeles on August 18th. Aoife O’ Donovan is an Irish-American singer and songwriter who is most known as the lead singer for the band Crooked Still. They have put out five albums.

There you have it folks! Your very own power trio! Listen to “Little Lies” below.
