Oh Harlow jumped into the music world under the name ‘The Dennis Sisters’ four years ago. Passionate about country music, but determined not to box in their creativity, the sister duo have been honing their song-writing craft and refining their sibling harmonies to create their own genre-crossing original music. Their music highlights this with influences from Americana, country, folk and pop in each catchy new song they create.
With Tiana on guitar and Briannah on bass, the Sunshine Coast girls began writing in their early teens after a long period of chronic illness which prevented them from attending school. This health journey in their youth gave them maturity beyond their years, which is showcased in their songs through their storytelling. From softly sung songs about love and loss, to falling for someone for the first time or simply celebrating good times with friends and loved ones. Their debut EP dropped on February 21st and immediately reached no. 1 on the iTunes Country albums chart. They followed the release up with their local launch gig on the 23rd to a packed crowd.
Fresh from performances at festivals including Woodford Folk Festival and the Tamworth Country Music Festival, the duo released their debut single ‘Give It A Miss’ on November 15th 2019 and since has reached no. 3 on the Music Network Australian Country Airplay chart and won Country Work of the Year at the 2020 Queensland Music Awards.
Now young adults, Oh Harlow are building a solid fan base with captivating performances of original songs that deliver catchy melodies and clever lyrics and showcase their musicianship on acoustic and bass guitar and of course, their rich sibling harmonies.
The last 18 months have seen Ti & Bri collaborating with artists as diverse as Brad Butcher, Caitlyn Shadbolt and Jay Bovino of Sheppard.
And the name change from The Dennis Sisters to Oh Harlow? Ti say’s “It’s been a 4 year deliberation picking a name that we both loved. Our family name being Dennis, we quickly got stuck with The Dennis Sisters while we built our act and grew as artists/musicians. We are The Dennis Sisters and will always be, but when we finalised these songs for the EP we realised that we were ready for the next step and felt finally naming our duo would be a perfect entry into our next project- OH HARLOW.”
Bri adds, “There’s a local park where we live called Harlow Park and we resonated with the name immediately. OH HARLOW feels like home for us, we’re connected to it.”
They’ve grown, they’ve learned and Oh Harlow are ready to kick some musical doors down- and it’s exciting.
