Jolene started piano lessons at 5, quickly graduating to a parade of woodwind instruments. At 15 she won a scholarship to the Monterey Jazz Festival summer camp, and her love of all things jazz was cemented. She continued playing through college, but then left it all behind for more than 20 years; she only stumbled back into the music scene when she moved to Napa 6 years ago.
Jolene is a fanatic about the craft of making music, loves a good duet, and feels lucky to have found such an awesome group of true Sirens. She claims that singing with the Sirens makes all the troubles in the world melt away.
If you try hard, you might sneak a glance of her in a vintage Barry White video, for which she did not receive the $50 promised to the naive college student. She did get to taste real Southern grits, however, for which she is eternally grateful.
Lead Vocals, Keys & Acoustic
Dan is not the youngest of our jet set BUT he probably has the most years of experience. He's a professional guitar player, and even toured with a rock band in the nineties (and has the good stories and street cred to prove it!). And while he's quite a talented guitarist, he has the heart of a drummer.
When he's not beating the drum, pulling strings, or collecting vintage instruments, Dan runs a recording studio, in which he helps others create masterful demos to share with others. He also knows how to drive a mean tractor.
Vocals & Drums
Lauren started her musical journey as a band geek, playing flute and French horn, making the teen years a challenge. Rediscovering her lifelong love of music later in life, and noting that her kids made it look cool, Lauren took up the bass guitar and discovered she should have been playing it all along.
Vocals & Bass
Brodie Cumming is a wine country native and musician extraordinaire on anything with six strings. He has a music composition degree from Sonoma State University, and is a teacher at the Napa School of Music (birthplace of many many Napa music lovers and talented artists).
In addition to being fantastic at flicking the strings (evidenced by his second place take of the 2017 Ibanez Flying Fingers Guitar Competition) Brodie is an uber-talented songwriter. You absolutely must listen to his compositions!
Brodie would like us all to believe he's the unassuming quiet guy, but in reality he's a heavy metal fiend and secretly loves the kind of eighties tunes that you listen to in the car with the windows rolled all the way up; which is why he's the perfect fourth for the Sirens, who love to tweak a cheesy eighties tune into a hard rock fantasy. He's one of those guys you love to hate, because he's so good, but still nice.
