Poema (musical group)
|Origin||Albuquerque, New Mexico, US|
|Labels||Tooth & Nail|
Elle and Shealeen Puckett, sisters born and raised in the American Southwest, comprise the band Poema. The female duo has been playing music ever since they can remember. At ten and twelve, the equal and opposites would walk to the local gas station to play Elvis covers for anyone filling up that day until they made enough money to buy candy. They were surrounded by music their entire lives, starting with their parents being in bands to playing music since pre-adolescence.[better source needed] The sisters never planned to be professional musicians until an extremely positive reception following a benefit show in 2008 in their hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico. After pondering shortly after the show, the sisters formed Poema, won a "Battle of the Bands" competition and recorded two demos.
In 2009, Poema signed to Tooth & Nail Records. At the time, Elle and Shealeen Puckett were 17 and 19, respectively. The record deal came as a result of a personal call from Brandon Ebel, founder and president of Tooth & Nail Records. The call followed a demo play from a representative whose attention had been caught by one of Poema's performances. Aaron Sprinkle worked with Poema on several projects. In 2014, they announced their separation from Tooth & Nail Records to become an independent band.
