Amy Sherman and Julie Peebles front the compelling musical force known as the Mickeys. Identical twins, this striking twosome blends Americana, Alt-Country and Indie Folk music; creating a unique acoustic sound with powerful harmonies and heartfelt lyrics. Their band boasts two other talented players: Bascom Peebles on guitar and dobro and Tom Rogers on bass.

The Mickeys formed their own record label (RiverBeat Music), co-produced and recorded two CDs - Finding Our Way and Walk Along. They secured nationwide distribution for the first record without any assistance. The sisters co-wrote five of the project's eleven tracks and performed all vocals on Finding Our Way. Moreover, it's the vocals that shine on this freshman offering; bell-like clarity weaves with sibling harmonies, creating a magic that is palpable.

The sequel CD is Walk Along. The sisters co-wrote nine of the eleven tracks and performed all vocals. This CD features the same breathtaking harmonies as their debut, with an added depth to the lyrical content. “This CD says a lot about what we have been through in life and who we are,” says Julie. A jack of all trades, Bascom Peebles also recorded and produced a song on the disc.

The Mickeys have enjoyed global press and radio exposure in support of Finding Our Way and Walk Along - resulting in impressive radio success and two European tours.

The band is writing new music and excited about 2014.  Look for new singles to be available soon.  The whirlwind that is the Mickeys rolls on.
