Keynote Sisters – Tiny TOPs
Sisters Phoebe and Jaclyn Holmes have been performing together since 2013, playing festivals, listening rooms, and private parties in Michigan. Accompanied by guitar, keyboard, and cajon, the Keynote Sisters’ sound pulls from influences of pop, folk, and Americana, tied together by their signature knit-tight harmonies.
Their first CD of covers, Come What May, was recorded in 2016 and all proceeds from sales were donated to the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund. The Keynote Sisters are avid songwriters and released their first EP of all original music, Rose Colored Glasses, in 2019. Their debut single, Done and Damned, is set for release summer 2021.
Since spring of 2020, the Keynote Sisters have been hitting the road—literally—with their Driveway Tour, a tour concept created in the early stages of quarantine, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Phoebe and Jaclyn have made it their goal to provide safe, socially-distanced private concerts to people all across Metro Detroit, as they perform out of their tour van to listeners’ front porches, driveways, or open windows. The Driveway Tour made its return in 2021, nearing 100 stops and bringing live music to hundreds of Michiganders in a time when music is needed more than ever.

About Tiny TOPs: Reserve a private performance on your front lawn or share the gift of music with someone you love. Select a musician from the lineup and choose a time for that artist to play at an outdoor location of your choice. Musicians will play a 20-minute set outdoors in front of your residence, and you don’t have to worry about downtown parking.
Tiny TOPs is modeled after Sidewalk Serenades, a program created in March 2020 by Creative Alliance in Baltimore.
