Meet the Artists: Emily West Afanador & Mollie Ziegler, Douglas County Daughters
by Luke Fannin
When sisters Emily West Afanador and Mollie Ziegler were teenagers, their family moved from a “cow town” in Douglas County, Nebraska, to the suburbs of Seattle. It was a big change, to say the least. “Our new high school was as big as our entire home town,” recalls Emily. Though they’ve both made their homes in the Pacific Northwest — Mollie in Seattle, Emily here in Eugene — when you hear their music, it’s hard not to imagine that every song they sing is at least in small part a love song for home.
