Meet The Upsides, a mid-Missouri trio born from the shared songwriting talents of Audra Sergel, Holley Pering, ​and Robin Anderson. With rich three-part harmonies that sometimes become the melody itself, The Upsides craft a ​sound that is as textured as it is melodic. With each member taking turns on lead vocals, their sound is a ​harmonious mix of diverse musical influences, including elements of jazz, folk, blues, and even classical music, ​paying homage to the trio's extensive backgrounds in music education, teaching, and music therapy. Each song ​showcases a unique blend of ukuleles, piano, guitar, and upright bass; the addition of Jonathan Kies on upright bass ​adds depth to their modern Americana mix.


From the beginning, they’ve woven their music with unique textures and intricate vocal layers, creating a rich and ​evolving soundscape. Over the past eight years, The Upsides have honed their craft through live performances at ​festivals, intimate listening rooms, and dedicated studio sessions.


The Upsides pour their heart and soul into every original tune. Their lyrics are heartfelt, often evoking a sense of ​nostalgia, bittersweet memories, and tender reflections on shared human experiences—joy, loss, love, heartache, ​grief, presence, and life itself. Through it all, they maintain an unwavering optimism, always looking on the upside.
