Sister is a fetching collection of originals written by the band members collectively and individually, mixed with loving covers of songs by Tom Petty (“Angel Dream”), Dolly Parton(“The Grass Is Blue”), Paul Westerberg (“It’s a Wonderful Lie”), and Concrete Blonde (“Joey”). Jones, Dobson, and Popper each take turns delivering lead vocals and also pick up multiple instruments throughout the album trading off on guitar, bass, and drums.
“This band has always been a great adventure,” says Jones. “Sasha and Cat’s fearlessness eggs me on to try new things, be it playing guitar, drums, writing a new way or wearing an elf costume on stage. We feed off of each other’s eagerness to jump in, sink or swim. And singing together feels like the most natural thing in the world. It’s a real privilege to have found this space together, try different things and to watch this band grow into what is at this moment. It is ever evolving and so fun.”
“For me this band has always been an incredible and uniquely safe outlet for trying new things,” addsDobson. “For example, I’d been writing all year on bass but was too shy to tell anyone, but when Norah asked me if I had anything new, before I knew it we were covering those tunes and I was playin’ bass in the band!”
“We were rehearsing for something and we took a break,” recalls Popper. “I sat at the drums and started messing around, Norah came back and picked up a guitar and riffed, and Sasha picked up the bass, and in an hour we had "It’s Not Easy". My bandmates just love to make music and it’s been a great learning experience for me about setting my ego aside and taking a chance.”
Puss N Boots first formed in 2008 as a live band performing around Brooklyn. With a repertoire anchored in Americana, country, folk, pop and rock, the band became an outlet for Jones, Dobson and Popper to switch instruments and allowed them to showcase a different side of themselves than on their various solo and side projects.
After years of live performances, the trio decided to make a full-length album which resulted in their 2014 debut No Fools, No Fun. Comprised of originals and covers, studio recordings and live performances, the album was praised by Rolling Stone, Paste, American Songwriter and led to TV performances on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and CBS This Morning.
The group has opened for Neil Young and appeared at numerous festivals including the Clearwater Festival, Green River Festival, and the Newport Folk Festival. In 2019, Puss N Boots performed “The Grass Is Blue” at the GRAMMY MusiCares charity event honoring Person of the Year Award recipient Dolly Parton.
Puss N Boots
grew up in Santa Cruz, CA. Her father Smith Dobson was one of the Bay Area’s most influential and in-demand pianists, her mom a well-known singer and her brother an accomplished drummer. By the time she was 12, Sasha was performing with the entire family at the Monterey Jazz Festival. She moved to Brooklyn at 17 and quickly assimilated into the NYC jazz scene, releasing 2005’s The Darkling Thrush, recorded with The Chris Byars Octet, and Modern Romance (2006). The latter, which won praise from TIME Magazine, was produced by Jesse Harris. She began playing in dive bars with her friend Norah Jones, who invited Sasha to join her on tour. Dobson’s most recent album, Aquarius (2013), was recorded with guitarist/producer Joel Hamilton (Black Keys, Tom Waits, Sparklehorse) and hailed by MAGNET as “raw and compelling.” She and her band performed at Farm Aid 2013 and Dobson opened for Willie Nelson on a series of early 2014 dates.
self-described “moody little record,” Come Away With Me (2002), introduced a singular new voice and grew into a global phenomenon, sweeping the 2003 GRAMMY Awards and going on to become the #10 best-selling album of the Soundscan era. Since then, Jones has released four more critically acclaimed and commercially successful solo albums—Feels Like Home (2004), Not Too Late (2007), The Fall (2009) and Little Broken Hearts (2012). The latter was produced and co-written by Danger Mouse, who had enlisted Jones for his acclaimed 2011 album ROME, a valentine to classic Italian film score music that also featured Jack White. Jones has also released two albums with her country collective The Little Willies and teamed up with Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong to record 2013’s Foreverly. The 2010 compilation …Featuring Norah Jones showed her to possess an incredibly versatile voice by collecting her collaborations with artists as diverse as Willie Nelson, Outkast, Herbie Hancock, and Foo Fighters. Jones is currently producing the solo debut from Adriel Denae of Cory Chisel and The Wandering Sons.
native Catherine Popper has performed and recorded with numerous artists including Hem, Levon Helm, Michael Stipe, Karen Elson, Rhett Miller, Jim Campilongo, Peter Rowan and Tony Rice, Norah Jones, Mark Olson and Kevn Kinney. She played bass, double bass and sang backing vocals for Ryan Adams & the Cardinals from 2004 – 2006, sharing writing credits on numerous songs. Popper joined Grace Potter and the Nocturnals on tour in 2009 and for the band’s self-titled fifth album, which debuted in the Top 20 of The Billboard 200 in 2010. In 2013, she appeared on Joseph Arthur’s The Ballad of Boogie Christ and Mike Doughty’s Circles Super Bon Bon… Popper will appear on Jack White’s 2014 release Lazaretto.
