From internet to international phenoms, Swedish siblings Klara and Johanna Söderberg's rocket ride to fame as First Aid Kit was launched with a cover of Fleet Foxes 'Tiger Mountain Peasant Song' on YouTube.  Their second release, 'The Lion's Roar', firmly established the duo as global folk favorites, with the song 'Emmylou' touted by Rolling Stone Magazine as the number 10 "Single of the Year" for 2012.  'Stay Gold', their third, was added to KAFM's new rack one year ago on June 20th, 2014 with the latest spin coming from KAFM's 'Tied To The Tracks' with The Wolfman on Satuday, May 2nd, 2015.  Honored at Sweden's 2015 Polar Music Prize, Laureate Emmylou Harris was serenaded in a dream come true performance for the sisters. Watch below and shed a tear with Emmylou.

 

Chances are you heard 'Emmylou' first on your community radio station.  KAFM
