Baskery The three sisters can’t recall when or why they started playing, the music’s always just been there. In their late teens, the sisters joined forces with their dad, who for decades was a one man band playing old blues and country tunes for a living.
This foundation of classic “roots music and Americana” settled in their hearts, but also awoke the urge of breaking the rules of traditional music. Baskery is a band built on what three people can do together and it’s all about turning the music on its head, blending the straightforwardness of punk with the subtlety of singer/ songwriting.
The first album, Fall Among Thieves (2008) was recorded in Stockholm, co-produced by Lasse Mårtén (Pink, ‘Peter, Bjorn and John’, Kelly Clarkson, Lykke Li, Primal Scream ). New Friends (2011) the follow up, the band referred to it as the “gypsy album” since it was mainly tracked on the road in various hotel rooms and band apartments, then mixed in
Berlin by Blackpete (Depeche Mode, Joe Jackson, Peter Fox). As a contrast to the first two albums which took several months to make, the third one “Little Wild Life” (2013) was recorded during ten days in an old dance studio converted to a studio in former east Berlin, co-produced by Matt Wignall (Cold War Kids, J. Roddy Walston, Wargirl).
All three albums received great acclaim by the press and are released in numerous countries. The releases in combination with relentless touring have given the band a reputation as one of the music scene’s most noticeable live acts.
In early 2014 the band started working with Kobalt Music Publishing which lead to collaborations with high-profile songwriters such as Billy Steinberg (Madonna, The Bangles, (Cyndi Lauper), Joe Henry (John Denver) and Jimmy Harry (Madonna, Pink, Kelly Clarkson, Britney Spears) and Lincoln Parish (Cage the Elephant).
Since the very beginning of Baskery the sisters have guarded their independence but when approached by Dan McCarroll (President and A&R) at Warner Music , they felt intrigued to break their indie tradition and make their next record on a major label. In August 2014 they signed a world wide recording deal with Warner Bros Music (Los Angeles). Baskery is one of few Swedish acts to get signed directly to a US major record company. The recordings the made under the term came out as a full length album Coyote & Sirens in October 2018, produced and engineered by Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Rolling Stones, f.u.n, The Revivalists).
In 2015 the sisters were invited to join legendary artist Robbie Williams as opener and special guests on his arena-tour throughout Europe. Later the same year they also toured the US with Gary Clark Jr and Brandi Carlile. 2017 and 2018 were both equally busy with multiple international tours, including appearances at Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival, Arroyo Seco, UtopiaFest and Bottlerock alongside artists like Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alabama Shakes, Dr John, Mumford and Sons, The Meters, The Avett Brothers and more.
Achievements:
Mother Tarantula Records, the band’s very own production and publishing company, have since 2012 produced and released albums as well as videos. Their projects are supported by the Swedish art council which aim
is to preserve unique art and music.
In both 2011 and 2013 the sisters received individual awards for their songwriting skills by Swedish composer’s society STIM.
