With two voices in harmony, a guitar and a banjo, Anne and Pete Sibley sing. Each song is a journey, a joining of music and story. Anne and Pete Sibley seek to convey music more attune to an experience rather than a simple song. Raised in the Northeast, settled in the West, Anne and Pete continue to strive to live an authentic human life.
The Sibleys’ music hit the national spotlight in 2009 with a blue ribbon finish in the “Great American Duet Sing Off” on National Public Radio’s A Prairie Home Companion. They’ve performed live at NYC’s Town Hall, Washington’s DC’s Kennedy Center and on festival stages from North Carolina’s Merlefest to Colorado’s Rockygrass. Honestly, the real credits are the way the music touches each individual they meet, this has been an ongoing gift that they cherish.
In 2011, the couple began their journey to California with their young children and moved by the ocean. While working on their first album they met Cookie Marenco of Blue Coast Records. “I was captivated by their sound”, says Cookie. Together they worked on the couple’s album, Extraordinary Life and a live-in-the-studio album for Blue Coast Records called Sanctuary.
Anne and Pete continue to seek their authentic living through their music and live performance. In deep gratitude they sing their songs and fall in love with audiences night after night. “I’m always impressed and hopeful for good in the world when I see people supporting us in our heart’s passion,” Pete shares. “What if we all believed we’re supported in our heart’s passion, be it music, parenting, dancing, astronomy or whatever? What will the world look like at that moment?”
