I am so proud of these young ladies, and everything they have accomplished in the past year after winning the 2018 Michigan State Fair Superstar Competition. Jaclyn was in her senior year of high school while Phoebe was finishing up her senior year at Michigan State, but despite their hectic schedules, they were STILL professional and energetic, eager to learn, and always ready to do their best work! It was an honor to coach, mentor and co-produce their fantastic new EP, Rose Colored Glasses.
I can’t wait to see what new adventures await The Keynote Sisters in the years to come no matter what paths they choose as human beings and as artists. These two powerful women will be able to accomplish ANYTHING and EVERYTHING!
Sisters Phoebe and Jaclyn have been performing together since 2012, playing at festivals, private parties, listening rooms, restaurants and breweries in Michigan. The Keynote Sisters are known for their tight harmonies, accompanied by guitar, keyboard and cajon. Their repertoire consists of an acoustic variety including country, pop, oldies and classics. Their first CD of covers, Come What May, was recorded in 2016 and all proceeds from sales were donated to the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund. The Keynote Sisters are avid songwriters and will be releasing their first EP of all original music, Rose Colored Glasses, on August 23, 2019.
Phoebe is a graduate from Michigan State University with plans of continuing her schooling to become a physician assistant. She is also a certified emergency medical technician, splitting her time between medicine and music. Phoebe began learning classical guitar at age 6 and has been playing ever since.
Jaclyn is working towards her BFA in Musical Theatre with a concentration in dance. She started singing at age 4, adding piano at 8 and cajon at 10. Jaclyn splits her time between Chicago and Detroit, pursuing both her musical and Broadway dreams.
