Sibling Unity

They’re a mere 21 years old, but an old-school aura surrounds identical twin sisters Nalani and Sarina Bolton, the singer-songwriter duo billing themselves as Nalani & Sarina.

Growing up in New Jersey’s Hunterdon County, they heard lots of folk and blues around the house, thanks to their parents playing music by the likes ofBob Dylan and Ray Charles, among others. This past spring, Nalani & Sarina met and jammed with one of their favorite singers, soul legend Sam Moore, during a joint appearance on SiriusXM satellite radio, and days later, they performed with Moore and his band at City Winery in New York (and held their own on the Sam & Dave classic “When Something Is Wrong With My Baby”).

Then there’s the pay-your-dues approach the Bolton sisters have taken to building an audience: playing one show at a time (on average, a handful of gigs per month) and focusing for now on New Jersey, where they still live, and its bordering states.

Girl Power

Nalani & Sarina share their Lessons Learned (iTunes) on CD prior to their big-time Sept. 10 Bitter End show in New York City. Harmonizing like angels, composing like Joni, adorable as legality will permit (they’re 21), these twins have that special “it” factor way beyond their obvious gorgeousness. If their Philippine blood makes ‘em look exotic, their blue-eyed soul-folk Lilith approach could make ‘em Hall & Oates with estrogen. The Bitter End show will have guest bassist Will Lee who promises to bring some other NYC heavyweights to the party. Lee is a self-professed “super-fan” of these girls and most likely has a crush on both of ‘em as I already do not even having met ‘em yet. Sam Moore is also a fan, the venerated soul-master having already had them onstage at a recent gig. Considering their musicianship (they play piano and guitar, sing like angels and wrote all 14 songs on Lessons Learned), their sweet swaying rhythmic thrust (the band Will Lee put together for this project is filled with master musicians Tommy Mandel, Leni Stern, Greg Drew, Joe Bonadio and Bones Malone) and their astonishing level of composition, we may be looking at the “next big thing.”
