The Time Jumpers Remember Dawn Sears With ‘Kid Sister’


The Time Jumpers will honor late band member Dawn Sears with their new project, Kid Sister. Influenced by Western swing and traditional country music, the project is set for release on Rounder Records on Sept. 9.

Sears passed away in 2014 after a battle with lung cancer.

Comprising first-call studio players and touring musicians, The Time Jumpers found a solid fan following when they took up residence on Monday evenings (their usual day off the road) at Nashville club 3rd & Lindsley. Band members include Vince Gill, vocals and guitars; Kenny Sears (Dawn Sears’ husband), fiddle and vocals; Joe Spivey and Larry Franklin, fiddles and vocals; Paul Franklin, steel guitar; “Ranger Doug” Green, guitars and vocals; Billy Thomas, drums and vocals; Jeff Taylor, accordion, piano and vocals; Andy Reiss, guitars; and Brad Albin, bass.

The ensemble’s prior release, 2012’s self-titled album, received two Grammy nominations.

Gill produced Kid Sister with the entire band creating the arrangements.
