(July 8th 2013 – Los Angeles, CA) CALICO the band, the California Country female Americana trio kicks off the summer tour season announcing 18 West Coast shows starting in Los Angeles on Sunday, July 21st at The Grande Ole Echo followed by appearances at notable venues, Sweetwater Music Hall, McMenamins, Moe’s Alley and more.
CALICO the band is a singer-songwriter “supergroup” that formed in late 2012 combining the talents of troubadours Kirsten Proffit, Jaime Wyatt, and Manda Mosher to create a refreshing lush 3-part harmony vocal sound reminiscent of an earthier Dixie Chicks mixed with Crosby, Stills, and Nash.
CALICO represents GRETSCH Guitar’s roots instrument line collectively playing acoustic guitar, resonator, mandolin, banjo and harmonica.
Since forming at the end of 2012, CALICO has quickly become one of the most popularly requested acts in the Southern California and Arizona live music scenes. The girls are putting finishing touches on their first EP while keeping up with an aggressive tour schedule, which has had them playing over 50 shows already this year.

LISTEN TO CALICO MUSIC HERE:
CALICO the band is an all female Americana style guitar-slinging trio. Belting out 3 part harmonies, the ladies can manhandle a guitar, dobro, mandolin, banjo and harmonica. Don't let their good looks fool you, Calico can write a mean hook and perform their sonic gems with total dedication. Manda Mosher, Kirsten Proffit, and Jaime Wyatt have recognized their musical sisterhood by adopting the personas of Perry Rose, Juniper, and Snap Dragon Calico (names chosen to honor their influences or reflect their personalities). All sing (of course), and they’re forging skillful and effective vocal arrangements employing alternating lead vocals and multi-part harmonies. Their voices work well together. Among them, they play banjo, mandolin, guitar, and harmonica.
