Fami and the Odd Sons is country pop with focus on vocal harmonies, lyrics and string instruments. The band from Gävle, Sweden is great for the larger festival stage but also in a small cozy bar or fancy theater.
They come from hard rock, rockabilly, pop, big band jazz, singer/songwriter and dance band. Making music together is in itself great fun and interesting. Michaela Odby has written the majority of the lyrics while the music is arranged together with the group. Inspiration is found in each others musical differences and favorites like Dixie Chicks, Johnny Cash, Brandi Carlile and Pistol Annies.
The bands debut album was released in 2017 and at the time the band was called “Fami”. In the beginning of 2020 Fami and the Odd Sons will release their second album, Boom Chick. The name Fami and the odd sons is a play on the english word ”family” and french ami. In the band are sisters and cousins, love and friendship. The members are Fanny Bernkert, Amanda Andersson and Michaela Odby(vocals), Markus Odby(guitar), Robin Olsson(guitar), Magnus Svensson(double bass) and Christian Nilsson(drums).
Fun? Heck yea.
