SONG FOR TODAY: The Staves - Winter Trees

ARTIST: The Staves

SONG: Winter Trees

ALBUM: 'Dead and Born and Grown'

YEAR: 2012

NOTES: The first time I heard The Staves was whilst watching Tom Jones on telly, playing a great gig at St Luke’s church in London. After providing some fine backing on a few numbers, everything went silent and these three vocally gifted sisters launched into one of the most breathtaking acapellas I have ever heard. They now have a debut album out, and from what I’ve heard of it, it is rather nice indeed. With its tranquil shades of folk, ‘Winter Trees’ is a perfect song for the season and an alluringly introspective soundtrack to snowy days.
