The Vixens of Fall are a family who have been performers all their lives. Three girls who happen to be sisters took a step in 2014 that placed them on the National stage of country music and they haven’t looked back. There stage presence is no different to how they are off stage.. Full of life, energy, and just a little “SASSY” or maybe a lot but what you see is a performance from a hard working group of professional artists like no other. Oh did I tell you they claim they are a bit Sweet, hot and a little crazy! plus a lot more which we call Talented.
Anneliese (Lulu) spoke on 3KND. The family of Sisters are tracing their indigenous family history, Kristina, Adrienne and Anneliese Whitehouse have music and performance in their blood. They have blended their unique brand of country rock, a harmonious, earthy sound, rich in promise and have started to write and share their original material to popular acclaim. Born and raised in the tropical North city of Cairns, the three sisters Kristina (Nina), Adrienne (Wren) and Anneliese (Lulu) established their grasp on the world. Their home was a close one, infused with the songs of their Father, who was a songwriter and poet and would play his guitar every morning before work, combined with the love and encouragement of their Italian descended Mother. With a pot of coffee on the stove and the accompaniment of his daughters harmonies, the scene for the Vixens formative years was set. In 2000 the family moved from Cairns to Brisbane, settling ultimately in the Northern region of Redcliffe by the sea.
Despite there being an eight year age gap between eldest sister Nina (28) and the youngest Lulu (20), the girls nevertheless fostered a sisterly bond that included all the characteristics of children brought up in the safety and security of a well-nurtured, loving family home with firm Country values at its core. Kinship, fanciful role-play, dancing, singing, laughing and of course arguing, were all a part of the Vixens childhood years. As Nina recounts “We’d argue of course, but always get through it. We’d fix issues by apologising and hugging it out… these days however we Vix it with a glass of wine! ”The girls earliest influences came through the music of their home. The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Chuck Berry, Eric Clapton and Creedance Clear Water Revival were all a part of their fathers morning repertoire and began the girls early passion for song. Once old enough to establish their own musical tastes and the inevitable influence of popular culture, the three would meander through a musical role-play in their bedrooms to the tunes of The Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, Nsync, Bewitched and perhaps most notably influential to their end sound, Shania Twain.
