Even before she had a chance to start building up her country career, Bonnie Raitt was born into prominence, what with having John Raitt, a Broadway musical sensation, as a father and an accomplished pianist as a mother. She developed a unique style of guitar playing from an early age, something that she would later recall as the "bottleneck" style. After graduating from high school, Bonnie started associating with Dick Waterman, a then sexagenarian blues promoter.

Although Bonnie Raitt suffered a setback with her 1986 album Nine Lives, she emerged at the tippy-top of Billboard 200 with Nick of Time in 1989.

Having been in the music business for around a decade, Sarah Siskind has carved a niche for herself as somewhat of a musician, vocalist, and songwriter extraordinaire. Having grown up in a musically inclined family that hails from North Carolina, she displayed her prodigious piano playing at the tender age of four and penned her first song before even breaking into her teens, astonishingly finishing her first album three years later. Upon her turning 21, she had already released her third album and relocated to Nashville at the turn of the millennium. Her 2002 record Covered, despite the tributary title, encapsulated a full range of her soul stirring vocals and established her symphonic fecundity that was later tapped into by the likes of Grammy-winning bluegrass sensation Alison Krauss. Sarah's penned number "Simple Love" was the leading track of Krauss's 2007 compilation album and received a Grammy nod for "Best Female Country Performance". Sarah has also famously collaborated with the up and coming indie act Bon Iver who performed her “Lovin’s For Fools” as the concluding single of each of their concerts during their European Tour in 2008, with Sarah joining them on stage as well later in the Big Apple.
