When Sledge Grits Band came into the J-14 office they totally blew us away. The band consists of four young girls, and get this: They're all sisters!
The drummer bo-Pah is 11 years old; the vocalist Mimi is 13 years old; the bass player and backup vocalist Ella is 16 years old; and the lead guitarist and songwriter Keiko is 18 years old.
"We have been through a lot in our short lives," they explain. "Our dad has MS and that has been a hard struggle for us. Music has helped us through so much and we think that's what people see when we perform: our passion."
While the girls have been writing and performing their own music for five years now, they've also been known to do some really awesome covers. Just wait until you watch their take on "Just Give Me A Reason" by Pink, a song that they played exclusively for us. Seriously, it's amazing!
Can you believe that Mimi is only 13? Let us know what you think of the sisters below, and be on the lookout for their first official single this summer!
