Poema is an American acoustic singer-songwriter duo from Albuquerque, New Mexico. The group, was formerly signed with Tooth & Nail Records and has released two EPs and a full-length album with them.


Elle and Shealeen Puckett, sisters born and raised in the American Southwest, comprise the band Poema.[citation needed] The female duo has been playing music ever since they can remember.[citation needed] 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.[1] They were surrounded by music their entire lives, starting with their parents being in bands to playing music since pre-adolescence.[2][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.[citation needed] After pondering shortly after the show, the sisters formed Poema, won a "Battle of the Bands" competition and recorded two demos.[3]

In 2009,[citation needed] Poema signed to Tooth & Nail Records. At the time, Elle and Shealeen Puckett were 17 and 19, respectively.[citation needed] 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.[4] Aaron Sprinkle worked with Poema on several projects. In 2014, they announced their separation from Tooth & Nail Records to become an independent band. [5]

In 2010, Poema was featured on every date of the Warped Tour in the Girlz Garage.[6][7][8]
