What was once a trickle of ridiculously talented bluegrass-bred youngsters has become a flood of late, and not many are more impressive than Georgias Lovell Sisters. Ranging from 18 to 23 years old, the trio (Jessica plays fiddle; Megan Dobro and Rebecca, the youngest, mandolin and guitar; all sing) have been at it for only a few years, but some serious virtuosityRebecca took second place at the Winfield mandolin competition four years agoand nifty original songs have moved them along quickly. Their 2005 debut When Forever Rolls Around served up a promise that this years Time To Grow fulfills, thanks in part to savvy co-producer Brent Truitt, and also to an insistence on following their own instincts. Blending grass, folk and a myriad of other influences into a lush but lively Americana sound, theyve got not only a bright future but a mighty fine here-and-now.
