Gathered around one microphone, Isa Burke, Ellie Buckland, and Mali Obomsawin pass around instruments and frontwoman duties with style and ease. Their effervescent vocal harmonies, deep musical chemistry, and evocative arrangements create a dynamic and spirited live show. Lula Wiles bring diverse influences to original songs that combine tradition with a distinctly modern sensibility. Their repertoire spans from centuries-old Appalachian ballads to classic country to contemporary Americana songwriting.
"With the harmonization of a well-performed experiment in human chemistry, the three young women behind this microphone are a testament to the classic sound of American songwriting." – Otis Mountain Get Down
"A delicate balance between feverous passion and harmonious light and charm and grace... It's organic and raw in a way that is honest and real… It's just plain beauty incarnate." – Red Line Roots
This Ear to the Ground episode was filmed and recorded in June, 2016 in Saranac Lake, NY by Beehive Productions
