Annika von Grey and Her Sisters Pen and Sing "a Global Experience"

With the way young teen stars are portrayed in the media today, it's easy to envision newbies as headed toward a downward spiral of drug overdoses, dramatic scandals, and mental breakdowns. Indie alternative band von Grey, however, is a pleasant exception.

When interviewing 17-year-old singer-songwriter Annika von Grey of the band, we must admit that we were thoroughly impressed with her maturity and levelheaded M.O. It also doesn't hurt that these four sisters (aged 13 to 18, BTW) are extremely talented, have even performed on Conan O'Brien, and idolize bands like Mumfred and Sons and Fleetwood Mac. We sat with Annika to get the scoop on what it's like touring with family, von Grey's sound, and what she really thought of Conan.
