WHY LENNON AND MAISY?

I discovered Lennon and Maisy on Facebook. One of my friends shared a video of them covering “Call Your Girlfriend” and I loved what I heard. Their video went viral having reached over 8.5 million views within six months, and it has since doubled to nearly 17 million views since October. The girls sound amazing, but for some reason, I was oddly attracted to the rhythm thing they were doing with the plastic cartons in the video. Usually, this would serve as a sort of distraction from the vocals, but their blend is incredible! They don’t need a distraction! In fact, I was semi-glad when they stopped doing the thing with the cartons because it allowed me to hear their amazing voices together. Check out the video!

Lennon and Maisy are daughters to the Country music duo The Stellas. Therefore, it makes sense that these girls are so talented. Both of their parents sing too! Their big break has been them being cast on ABC’s new show “Nashville” as Maddie and Daphne James (the daughters of a falling country music star). Here’s Maddie and Daphne making their debut on the show!

Lennon and Maisy are just getting started, but there is surely a promising future ahead for these girls. Due to their recent success, not much more information is available on them on the Internet. They are not signed to a label yet, but I am sure that is next to come. I wonder who they’ll sign with? Will they sign to a label? They are very young. Are they ready for that kind of pressure to make and sell records? Their parents are signed to EMI Music Canada. Perhaps, they will provide the proper guidance for these ladies’ developing music career. Only time will tell..

Here are more of their acoustic videos. Aren’t they amazing?!
