Sheryl and Kerry grew up in San Francisco and started singing together at an early age performing in glee clubs, choirs and musical theater. Daughters of film and theater performer Eileen Christy, their summers were spent on the road learning from the best. They were also discovering guitars and folk music. They started performing in their teens as a duo playing country rock, folk and standards. Sheryl and Kerry put performing aside for a few years to raise their families and then started playing rock and blues with the Blue Tuesday Band in the San Francisco Bay area.
They are now back hitting the stage as “The Keller Sisters” performing original music, combining storytelling, warmth and humor. Their music has been called “American Folk Pop.” They have played at the San Francisco Free Folk Fest, Women in the Redwoods, the Cypress Meadows Acoustic series as well as local Bay Area venues.
Several of their songs have become award-winners, including Best Song by the West Coast Songwriters, and in 2012 they received an honorable mention in the International West Coast Songwriters song contest, Americana category, for their song, “Can’t Believe My Luck.” Their first album, Shine, was released November 2012, and a second album is slated for release later this year.
Recently KC Cafe Radio Music Director Kathy Forste visited via phone with Sheryl and Kerry. They talked about their musical upbringing, songwriting styles, and progress on their forthcoming album.
