A newly formed independent trio shoots up to the #2 position on Billboard...
Less than a year after forming the group "Tre Principesse", 15 year old Agne G., 18 year old Tatiana Marie, and 20 year old Anastasia Lee became Billboard charting artists this past week.
"It was definitely a surprise," says Anastasia Lee, "We just formed the group in the spring of 2016 and we have had minimal rehearsal time until May and June of this year . Most of the vocals and some of the instrumentals were recorded in Appleton, Wisconsin at Rock Garden Studio. All of the vocals were completed by the end of June and everything was sent to Nashville to be mixed and mastered by the first week of July. After the mixing and mastering process, the finished files were sent to LA and voila... our album was finished less than three days before our debut performance at Festa Italiana Milwaukee 2017 (July 21, 22, & 23). I've been working on this album and the logistics behind it every night until 1AM or 2AM at least, for the past 6 to 7 months so to see this happen is pretty neat."
"We were really surprised and we're glad our hard work paid off. None of this would have been possible without our fan's support as this album was crowd-funded," says Tatiana Marie. "Last June my sister Anastasia and I graduated from Ashwaubenon High School, we're about to start our 2nd year of college at St. Norbert, and now we are Billboard charting artists. It's pretty cool."
Agne G. said she was, "Shocked, absolutely shocked. Out of the three of us I'm not sure who was more surprised, but it's great news."
