In the summer of 2012 in Venice Beach, California, three brothers found themselves living together for the first time since they were kids. Quickly inspired and enthused by each others’ musical talents, they began combining their unique guitar and vocal styles into an original, authentic sound they were driven to create.
Radiant California beaches and the captivating songs of the Walter brothers soon attracted a Dutch blonde named Madelon. Her sparkling piano and soulful voice captured the brothers’ ears and hearts and the wheels of creation continued to advance. On the front porch of an old house in Venice Beach, CA…16 Sparrows was born.
The group’s energetic acoustic guitars, enchanting piano melodies, and expressive harmonies continued to evolve to include percussion, and at times mandolin, banjo, and the occasional accordion, producing upbeat, adventurous, acoustic driven songs.
The band released their self titled EP in March of 2013 followed by a three month European tour as well as a shorter West coast tour. 16 Sparrows is planning a full length album to be available by mid 2014.
