The Beck Sisters
The Beck Sisters
It’s hard to beat the harmonic intuition of sisters. Amy & Rachel Beck began singing together around the family piano in Montague, PEI. They now share their pop-infused folk with ever-expanding audiences in Canada and beyond. The Beck Sisters are currently working on the follow-up to their multi award-nominated sophomore album with acclaimed producer Daniel Ledwell (Jenn Grant, Fortunate Ones).
