The Backups at The Acorn - Midwest Made

Event published by The Acorn

The Backups are a soulful, harmony-driven lady trio made up of Leslie Sypian, Meredith George, and Morgan Ingle. A love for music and sharing it brought this group together. All hailing from Southwest Michigan, the trio met through running in the same musical circles in the Benton Harbor Arts District. Leslie (The Sypian Family Band) and Morgan (Slim Gypsy Baggage) have had each other's backs for the last 10 years selling out epic Thanksgiving-Eve shows with their bands at The Livery. Meredith met the two after working at The Livery and performing at Open Mic Nights. Before 2017 they had all sung together in some capacity or another by backing each other up on harmonies. After several suggestions from friends and local fans, the three decided to join forces. One back porch summer night the three sang as a trio for the first time, and it was magic. Each voice slid into its part without hesitation. Several goosebumps and giggles later The Backups were forged.

Seven years going strong, the Trio has found its sound without forgetting its harmony-driven roots. The Backups are now joined by Marc Churchill on drums, Nate Edwards on bass & Nate Sypian on lead guitar. The ladies all share the spotlight vocally while highlighting each other's talents.
