Like many sister acts, Casey and Mizzy Wiggins first sang together as children. Professionally, they blossomed in the '90s, as part of the Austin and Greenwich Village music scenes. They had released two albums by the turn of the century, but took 18 years to release their third, Fairfeld County. Life, like Mizzy's decision to go to medical school and the sisters raising six children between them, had a way of getting in the way. Happily, they have the songs and the harmonies.
Joshua Garcia, born and raised in L.A., came East to attend Brown University, where he majored in Ethnic Studies, but found himself drawn to music. After graduation he made his way to New York, where he has been welcomed by the music community, and why not? His well-crafted songs, in the mold of early Dylan and Townes Van Zandt, and his resonant voice signal a talent to be reckoned with.
Garcia and the Wiggins Sisters journeyed to The Bronx for a joint studio session in advance of their performances at the July 10 On Your Radar at Rockwood Music Hall. By the time it was over they had complemented —and complimented — each other nicely.
