The 4 sister act, Redhead Express, debuts their singing talents as they perform God Bless the U.S.A. to their awaiting fans. It was obvious that their hometown roots and commitment to redefining the simple message in country songs, with their own unique sound, brought out the simple elegance of the music for the night. The music that these sisters perform is a taste of down-home, back to your roots country charm that drives that humble overtone down into your boots‒ giving this quartet a sound that is unique and all their own.
Lead singer, songwriter, and eldest sister, Kendra, has been singing since she could talk. She started out singing in church, and from then on she would sing or play where ever she could. Some of her favorites? Eva Cassidy, Ella Fitzgerald, Alison Krauss and Wynonna Judd.
LaRae calls herself the ‘Utility Man’, playing banjo and guitar, and she has created her own, unique playing style- influenced by the likes of Earl Scruggs and Bela Fleck. She loves to organize where everyone and everything goes on stage.
Alisa is the social butterfly with an infectious giggle that will brighten anyone’s day. She plays violin and loves to fiddle, finding it her knack to improvise with the songs they are playing.
Meghan is the baby girl and plays the biggest instrument of all‒ a 1939 S100 Kay bass that seems nearly impossible for the petite girl to hold up. Her soul is deeply rooted in the music that they love.
The music and sound of Redhead Express is, in one word, enchanting. In addition to the talent and evident connection these sisters have with each other, the sound they produce together is purely breathtaking.
This American patriotic song, written by country music artist, Lee Greenwood, was an excellent choice as the Redhead Express put their own signature spin on it. “America is a great country, and we believe that it is important to always remember your roots,” the girls stated. “That is why we love to sing songs that inspire others to feel this love of God, family and country. We can’t think of a better way to pay tribute to those that have sacrificed so much for the freedoms we all enjoy!”. It is obvious that these are the things that matter most to them as they share this deep love of theirs through music.
This iconic quartet is definitely a mainstay for music lovers of any genre. There isn’t a song that they cannot sing without sharing with others that heartfelt affection they have for music and for the people they share it with. This love is unmistakable with every note.
