You might say that music runs in the family, Lennon and Maisy are the daughters of a Canadian country duo called The Stellas (their last name is Stella). The girls grew up in and around Canada. Lennon is 13-years-old and Maisy is just 9-years-old. The girls have dished about growing up in a musical environment, Maisy told Coup de Main Magazine:
"We've always loved music and our parents obviously, are a duo - it's always been a musical environment. My Mom has seven brothers and sisters - she's one of eight - and her sister Tracy is musical as well as her brothers, it's all a musical environment as far as my Mom's side of the family.
These amazing sisters have always been surrounded by music, but they really turned heads once they started posting their covers of songs on YouTube, in fact their acapella cover of Robyn's "Call Your Girlfriend," where they use a couple of empty butter tins as percussion instruments, spread through the internet like wildfire! Lennon's voice is souldful beyond her years, and both girls are able to play instruments. This cover alone gained them celebrity fans like Harry Styles (of One Direction) and Amy Poehler! Check out the video that started the buzz below!
Despite their rising fame, Lennon and Maisy's parents kept them in school, so when they were asked to perform for designer Marc Jacobs at Fashion Week the girls could only send in a video (needless to say, it was a smash!) They also started booking small gigs and festivals and continued to put their videos online. Their major breakthrough came when they were asked to be a part of the show Nashville! On the show they play characters much like themselves, two young sisters whose talent can't be denied. Check them out on Nashville below!
