The lyrics by Maureen Ennis from the Song ‘John William’, speak of the lineage into which she and her sister, Karen, were born. Along with their sister, Teresa, the girls learned to sing around the time most people learn how to walk.
And while that may not be a unique thing for many people from Newfoundland and Labrador, the level of success they have attained since then, certainly is.
With a Juno award, a SOCAN award, multiple ECMA and Music NL awards and nominations, Maureen and Karen have performed in Australia, The Middle East, Europe, America and Canada, accumulating 3 gold records along the way and sharing the stage with such widely respected artists as the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Mary Black, Jann Arden and the Chieftains.
Having released 6 CD’s as the Ennis Sisters, ENNIS are poised to release their follow-up to the award winning album, ‘Lessons Learned’.
