Hearts of Kin is an emerging East Coast Americana band fronted by sisters Danielle MacDonald and Shellie Ann Tobin. The singer songwriters have been capturing audiences with their sweet sibling harmonies and signature slide guitar. Well known for their soulful songwriting, the darling duo's style has been flavored by the early influences of Sheryl Crow, Jewel, The Chicks and the late great John Prine.


Recently reunited in their Cape Breton hometown, the sisters have wasted no time establishing the band as an up-and-coming force.  Already with several songs claiming #1 positions on East Coast radio charts, Hearts of Kin have earned invitations to showcase for the East Coast Music Awards, Nova Scotia Music Week, and the largest outdoor concert in Atlantic Canada, the Cavendish Beach Music Festival.


After sharing stages with names like Serena Ryder, Michelle Wright, and Lennie Gallant, the duo released their first full length album, "Beautiful Burn" on October 27th, 2023.
