BIOGRAPHY
Sisters Sheena and Sheila found their love of music through the ever-present strum of their father's guitar throughout their childhood. His generous introduction to country classics from the stage of the local tavern made music magical and inspired the girls to pursue performing.

As young adults, Sheena and Sheila relocated from rural Missouri to Nashville. First Sheila made the move, connecting with a select group of music row executives. Encouragement from this group of experts solidified Sheila's belief that she had the talent to launch her songwriting career. Sheena joined her older sister a few years later and together the girls formed Missouri Mile.

In 2008, the duo gained a lot of attention during an ASCAP workshop with their life- inspired lyrics and their unique, yet traditionally rooted sound. It was the beginning of great things for the soulful pair. In 2010, Missouri Mile debuted their first EP "That's What I Do" followed by their sophomore album "Exit 214" in 2013.

Missouri Mile has performed their road-tested, unforgettable music across Midwest and look forward to touring soon! Influenced by legends like George Strait, Lee Ann Womack, Alison Krauss and The Judds, the duo is a welcome chord in the Americana market.

News:
Missouri Mile's Exit 214 EP was selected as a finalist in the Indie Acoustic Project’s Best CDs of 2013 awards.

REVIEW - MISSOURI MILE Exit 214
by Robert K. Oermann, MUSIC ROW MAGAZINE
For me, it’s a good day when most of the new music I hear is as good as this stack of platters is....The DisCovery Award goes to the surprisingly accomplished newcomers of Missouri Mile. Songwriters Sheena and Sheila are sisters who comprise the duo Missouri Mile. They harmonize as only siblings can. The lilting title tune to their seven-song EP reveals them to be simply audio awesome. The song is completely captivating as both a melody and a lyric, and Byron Hill’s production frames their vocals with a lovely, luscious mix of mandolin, bass and acoustic guitar. In a word, enchanting. Producers and A&R folks take note: All of these songs are worth cutting, pronto.
