About The Alegre Sisters
Caroline Joy Alegre (C.J.) picked up an ukulele in Oahu, Hawaii in late December of 2008, and she hasn't put it down since. Soon after, Lauren Michelle Alegre picked up an uke, & began strumming it with vigor.
While The Alegre Sisters are fairly new to playing their instruments, they've been harmonizing together and making up tunes their whole lives.
The Alegre Sisters are from a small town in northern California, by the name of Susanville. They currently reside in Oakland, CA where they are happily singin' strummin' and adventurin'.
The Alegre Sisters influences include: Dawn Marie Alegre, Sam Cooke, The Everly Brothers, Billie Holiday, Sara Vaughan, Ani DiFranco, Neil Young, Karen Dalton, Marvin Gaye, Israel Kamakawiwo'ole & Stevie Wonder
