What a refreshing change of music genre, seeing the highly engaging, eye and ear pleasing Wolfgramm Sisters, performing their brand of pop, rock, soul and blues at Basement Discs on this hot summer day in Melbourne.
I have grown fond of their debut self titled CD since acquiring it in January, so it was great to hear some it of played live today with a few new covers that are not on the CD - a couple of Pointer Sisters songs; “Shaky Flat Blues” for one, a great little blues number performed with great verve.
All three sisters took turns to lead the singing with Eliza performing, much to my delight, “Come Pick Me Up”, a Ryan Adams composition, Kelly doing the Rolling Stones “Loving Cup” and Talei “River Boulevard”, a Barbara Moritz tune. They also played two of their own compositions “Don’t Stop” and “King”, both fine songs that don’t sound in the least out of place in their repertoire and stand up to the excellent covers on their CD to such an extent that you could swear you’d heard them, or something like them, before.
What a talented threesome of young women they are! All have stunningly good voices and know how to use them expressively. Their harmonies are really spectacular, no doubt born of their sisterhood and practiced since infancy. They come from a musical family, so that’s no surprise.
In fact it was a fantastically good little show which I’d certainly like to see again. The Wolfgramm Sisters are a quality act and are sure to go on to fame and fortune.
