(Nashville, Tenn.) Oct.15, 2009 – New music from sister duo Tal & Acacia will be prominently featured tonight during ABC’s hit primetime drama “Private Practice.” The ABC network’s placement of the song “Drifting Away” follows last week’s iTunes spotlight of the duo’s track “ClearView,” as its notable Discovery Download selection. Both songs appear on the duo’s debut album titled Wake Me, released at iTunes on Oct. 6. The album skyrocketed up the iTunes charts hitting Top 5 Christian Albums, Top 20 Pop Albums, and broke into the Top 100 Overall Albums.

The recent iTunes review of the duo’s song “ClearView,” embraces the buzz-worthy track, saying, “The award for ‘song that sounds like it belongs in an iPod Commercial’ goes to the talented sister duo...”.

Tal & Acacia’s music receives further promotion following “Private Practice” this week with a feature on the iTunes Facebook Fan Page, launching on Friday, Oct. 16. The spot includes a digital stream of “Drifting Away” and will reach over 2 million fans.

The duo—sisters Tal & Acacia—grew up in Portland, Maine, and first began songwriting and playing guitar in their teen years, while the family spent an insightful year in Russia with the Salvation Army. Now, in their early twenties, Tal & Acacia aim to create songs that wake listeners and refresh the soul. Musically, Tal & Acacia bear resemblance to such acts as Feist, Norah Jones, Imogen Heap and Sixpence None The Richer, and credit songwriting inspiration from artists like Keith Green and Stevie Wonder.

The quirky pop sound of Tal & Acacia’s debut album, titled Wake Me, is a breath of fresh air—defined by catchy choruses—and girded in joy. Produced by Monroe Jones (Ginny Owens, Chris Rice, Third Day, Caedmon’s Call), Tal & Acacia’s Wake Me is distinctly rich and infectious, and intuitively embraces the clash between the principled, spiritual inner self and a confusing, glittery outer culture.
