6/25/2012 - Sister Duo POEMA Hit the Road All Summer; Full-length Debut Releasing Sept 11
Tooth & Nail Records’ stunning sister duo Poema is currently on the road this summer for their headline “Summer Heat and Fresh Beats” tour. This tour will feature special guests Theatre Breaks Loose and Almost Legendary (dates below). Following this tour, Poema will continue on the road with Jake Germany and the Cardboard Kids on tour presented by Substream Music Press. Hitting more than 40 dates across the country, Poema will be introducing fans to new music from their upcoming full-length debut, Remembering You, which will release September 11.
"We love being on the road,” share Poema sisters Shealeen and Elle. “We get to travel, meet some of the coolest people, and we always end up with the craziest stories - all the while doing what we love. It's an adventure 100% of the time."
Tooth & Nail Records introduced the world to the lovely Poema with their debut EP “Sing It Now” in 2010, which is available for free now at Noisetrade here as a New & Notable download. Two sisters from Albuquerque, NM, Shealeen and Elle, grew up in a close-knit family where music was an integral part of their life. Shealeen has been classically trained in piano, and Elle taught herself to play guitar. Poema’s musical influences include pop, folk, country and alternative music, and they strive to write songs that speak to people.
Since the debut of their EP, Poema was named as one of AP’s “Top 100 Bands You Need to Know,” and the sisters toured the entire Vans Warped Tour in the Girlz Garage last summer. They also released a Christmas EP Once A Year in 2010.
10/26/2010 - Tis The Season For Holiday Sounds with Sister Duo Poema
Following a packed summer of touring with the Vans Warped Tour in the Girlz Garage, sister duo Poema is thrilled to announce their digital holiday release, “Once A Year,” on November 16th. This five-song digital release features two original tracks and three classics (track listing below). It will be available digitally for $4.99. Following the holidays, Poema will continue to work on their full-length debut for 2011.
"We're so thankful to have been able to record this Christmas EP,” shares Poema. “Our earliest studio experiences were recording Christmas songs in our dad's studio, so recording this EP was almost like going back to our roots. It was really an incredible time. Also, being able to work with Aaron Marsh was marvelous! The collaboration turned into something wonderfully unanticipated, and we are extremely proud of it. We love the EP and hope the feeling is mutual for the listeners! Hopefully this is one of many to come!"
Tooth & Nail Records introduced the world to Poema with their debut EP, “Sing It Now,” earlier this year to rave reviews saying: “(Poema is) refreshing, introspective, and very ‘chill’” and “it's an undeniably attractive release, and Poema's future looks bright as a result.” Two sisters from Albuquerque, NM, Shealeen and Elle, grew up in a close-knit family where music was an integral part of their life. Shaeleen has been classically trained in piano for over 11 years, and Elle basically taught herself to play guitar. Poema describes their sound as “happy, acoustic-pop.”
