Ennis Sisters

In our fast paced, technologically driven world, today’s audiences have a hunger for music that is direct, honest and real. Ennis provides relief to that hunger with a live performance that is powerful, compelling and, above all, as clean and fresh as the wind and waves that wash over their home shores of Newfoundland.

As the Ennis Sisters, the group released six CDs, toured the Middle East, Norway, the UK, every Canadian Province and 90% of the United States, accumulating their own gold record, plus two compilation gold records along the way. In addition to sharing stages with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Chieftains, Mary Black and Jann Arden, career highlights include a Juno Award, a SOCAN Award, and multiple ECMAs and Music Newfoundland awards and nominations.

As Ennis, sisters Maureen and Karen Ennis (along with music collaborator/ band member, Mark Murphy), released Lessons Learned in 2011, winning the 2011 ECMA for Roots Traditional Recording Of The Year. In July of 2012, Ennis released The Fortunate Ones, which includes Maureen Ennis/Mark Murphy originals, as well as songs by Ron Hynes, Bob Dylan and a rousing pub style song Ladies Lounge (co-written by actor Russell Crowe and Alan Doyle of Great Big Sea).

“I am so proud of all the music we’ve made, both as the Ennis Sisters and now as Ennis”, says Maureen. “ We feel like everything we’ve done in our career has led to this album. We had the privilege of over-seeing every aspect of this CD; from deciding what songs were going on there, to the production and recording, to the final sound and design.”

“It has been a tremendous amount of work, but more gratifying then anything,” explains Karen. “We were surrounded by some of the most talented people we know who raised the bar for us everyday. We felt completely free to see this project through in a way that makes us really satisfied with the final product.”

Music has always been such a big part of our lives,” says Maureen. “As long as we’re able to maintain the passion that we have for playing live, we’ll continue to produce the kind of music that people expect from us at our shows. We feel like this CD is as close as we’ve come to capturing the live performance experience and we couldn’t be happier about that.”
