The Braillettes were a vocal group from Alameda, California, United States. The group consisted of three women (Maggie Liebnitz, Jackie Overalls, and Kay Smith), two of whom (Overalls and Smith) were blind. They released one album, titled Our Hearts Keep Singing, in 1968. The album is now out of print.
The cover photograph was taken by their high school classmate, John Skoglund, who later married Maggie Liebnitz.
"Our Hearts Keep Singing" and (alt-pop blues musician) Captain Beefheart's seminal "Trout Mask Replica" album were both recorded at Whitney Studios in Glendale during the same time period (1968-1969) - musician Frank Zappa's HOT RATS and other Zappa albums (as well as countless independently-produced religious LPs) were also recorded at owner Loren Whitney's classic studio, which was known for its superlative Wurlitzer organ
