“The Carper family impresses me in much the same way that the Riders in the Sky did 30 odd years ago. I was impressed with the way that a small group could deliver such a complete sound. Everyone sang lead and was capable of perfectly blended harmonies, all the while supporting the vocals with instrumental backup, at times flashy and at times subtle, but always appropriate...Their range of material is most impressive for such a young group, reflecting the various influences of the members, but whatever the genre, it is represented authentically and authoritatively. The harmonies are spot on and the instrumentals always fit. I hope that their career trajectory matches that of the Riders. They have what it takes. ”    -Tom Pittman (Austin Lounge Lizards, KUT Folkways host)

The Carper Family has brought together three of Austin's most talented young country and bluegrass singers and pickers... Melissa Carper [vocals, bass], Beth Chrisman [vocals, fiddle], and Jenn Miori [vocals, guitar] each grew up singing and playing music with their families. 

By the time they created their new “family band”, each member had already led her own band and sat in with some of Austin's finest musicians. But this particular collaboration has blended stunning three part harmonies into the finest old country, old-time, bluegrass, and swing tunes. Their boiled-down and intimate presentation highlights the quality of their united and solo voices, as well as drawing out each player’s abilities with her accompanying instrument. In addition to bringing audiences their beautiful renditions of standards, the group also writes original songs that both honor and challenge the solid country traditions at the heart of their heart-felt sound. Already cheered on stages and street corners from Anchorage to New Orleans, the Carper Family looks forward to showing off their singing and playing for fans of good country music everywhere.
