"A total winner of a back porch record...Completely tasty as it rolls from one song
to the next, this is a folkie dream set that gets it right throughout.  Must hearing for
fans that want a record they could wear out if it was a record instead of a cd."
 - Chris Spector, Midwest Record

The Sweet Potatoes come out of Southern California to dish up their own unique
blend of country, folk and homespun Americana. Featuring acoustic guitars, ukulele, accordion and harmonica, this trio will bring a smile to your face with their sweet harmonies and finely crafted songwriting. Laura and Kelly write original music rooted in the family ties that made them the women they are today; songs about finding and appreciating love, having faith, family and home. Their writing is influenced by strong female singer/songwriters such as Emmylou Harris, Patti Griffin and Linda Ronstadt.  They're often played on playlists with bands like Red Molly, The Wailin' Jennys and Old Crow Medicine Show. Their music has a back porch charm, relaxed as an old easy chair. 

They put out their first cd after only playing a few shows together!  The self titled cd was produced by Nashville favorite, Phil Swann, and features fine guitar & dobro work from Linda Taylor (Laura's band mate from "Whose Line Is It Anyway"), and Buddy Mondlock (an old Chicago friend, and great singer/songwriter himself). David Carpenter plays stand up bass and banjo, Glenn Jost is on drums, and Dennis Caplinger does some excellent fiddle work. 

The Sweet Potatoes second cd, "Faith, Good Neighbors and a Telephone" came out Marh 2014.  Phil Swann produced again, and Linda Taylor, David Carpenter, Steve Borgard and Eric Heinly helped out.  The band's songwriting and sound have become even more focused after playing together for a few years. 

The Sweet Potatoes do concerts around the country, meeting new folks and having a good ole time. They often play live as a trio, but sometimes they're lucky enough to be joined by Steve Borgard on dobro, harmonica and banjo and Daniel Regal on percussion.  They love playing shows and connecting with a live audience, with Rick often adding his funny, freewheeling storytelling.  The Sweet Potatoes have played at coffeehouses, festivals, house concerts, churches, theaters and even an Easter Egg Hunt.

"The Sweet Potatoes diversity in grooves and lyric content is such a refreshing
sound, yet very rootsy in the style of The Trio (Linda Rondstadt, Dolly Parton &
Emmylou Harris)" - Chris Cooke, host of Acoustic Lounge
