Take my hand, let me stand where no one stands alone
-The Peasall Sisters

Peasall Sisters
If you've been reading this blog a while you know I love the Peasall Sisters. I have their last disc and had the previous one although I gave it to my cousin's daughters because its more their age and style. Their harmonies are wonderful, their voices are beautiful, their personalities seem incredibly sweet and I just wish I could hug 'em all. Heck if I wasn't more than double their age I'd want to take one home and marry her, or someone like her.

Apparently they've given up the music industry, at least as a group. May of this year was the last tour they gave, and now they're not the Peasall Sisters any longer. They're just the Peasall sisters. I understand the reluctance to become another Osmond family, and I do know touring and performing takes a serious bite out of school and personal time. The oldest got married and they're busy with other things.

Its just sad to me because of how wonderful their music was, I feel a loss at never getting another disc. I don't want the wonderful Home To You to be their last effort. Even if they get together again eventually their voices won't be the same and we'll have missed all those years they could have been singing. They are still out there. One of the trailers for the Coen Brothers True Grit remake (which was great, by the way) uses a Peasall Sisters song (warning, annoying ad before trailer starts):

Sarah is now 23, Hannah 20, and Leah 17, and that's a time in your life you don't really want to tie down with a career, so I understand. I just wish they could somehow still sing for us. I suspect that Hannah especially will have a bright career ahead of her if she chooses, she's got a wonderful voice; but then they all do.

It's a shame because it seems like now more than ever it is possible for great bands to develop a fan base that will allow them to make a decent living via touring and independently produced albums.
