 The Sweet Potatoes come out of Southern California dishing up a fresh blend of country, folk and homespun Americana, sure to bring a smile to your face with their sweet harmonies and finely crafted songwriting.

Laura Hall (songwriter, guitar, accordion, ukulele, vocals) is best known as the pianist on the hit television show "Whose Line is it Anyway". She came up in the acoustic music scene in Chicago, playing with folks like with Michael Smith, Tim Grimm, and Buddy Mondlock. Kelly Macleod (songwriter, guitar, vocals) cut her teeth on the road after being discovered by Eddie Van Halen while singing at a local club in Shreveport, La. Eddie brought her band, “Private Life” on a his world tour, and produced their two albums. Rick Hall (bass, harmonica, vocals), grew up on a farm near Jerseyville, IL, and is also a fine actor and storyteller.

The Sweet Potatoes came together after Kelly and Rick co-starred in, and Laura did the score for, an indie film Rick wrote. Out of that collaborative process, the women starting writing together, soon making their debut cd, then a second,"Faith, Good Neighbors and a Telephone" a few years later.

In 2017, they made their third album, "Headin' Home", a sonic vehicle well suited for a trip down Route 66. From Laura's front porch as a young woman to Kelly's back yard as a little girl their songs will make you smile, but it might be through a few tears. Although they're all old hands at performing, this is the new music from their hearts. These are the songs that really tell their stories, all with sweet harmonies and a touch of twang.
