It’s a case of “like father, like daughters” for Alison and Marla Solis.

The 20-year-old and 18-year-old Mexican singers, the daughters of legendary singer/songwriter Marco Antonio Solís, are hitting the road with their famous dad.

Alison and Maria, who made their musical debut in 2018 with the release of their version of “Extrañándote” and touring with their father in Chile and Mexico, will now join Solís on his U.S. trek Y La Historia Continúa.

“It’s awesome that our family is our team and to have them around us as we’re becoming the best versions of ourselves,” Alison says.

The North American leg of their tour kicked off March 31 at the Allstate Arenain Chicago where the sisters joined their father onstage to perform “Dónde estará mi primavera.”  

Just hours before going onstage, Billboard caught up with Alison and Marla in a Q&A where they talked about creating their own path in the industry with the advice from the “best teacher” they could have asked for.

What were those years like building up to the very moment you first stepped foot on a stage?

Alison: The first performance I had on my own was in a local theater singing with my piano teacher and ever since then I’ve just loved it more and more. In 2017, I got invited to go on tour with Camila and that was probably the best experience that has helped me to improve myself as an artist and a performer in general.

Marla: Music has always been part of my life. We also loved singing for family and friends who would come over to the house and we’d even fight each other for the mic. I’m so thankful for the opportunity my dad has given us to grow and expand our knowledge every time we step that stage. It’s been amazing journey and we still have a lot to grow so every day we learn. Thankfully, with the best teacher around.

Was going into music the obvious path for you both?

Marla: It wasn’t completely the obvious path. We tried many other things like soccer, cheerleading, tennis, track, we did a lot of other things and our parents wanted us to find our passion, to go and explore all the things the universe has to offer. But, we always ended up back in music. It was that that really set our souls on fire and made us feel something special.

What’s it like being on the road with your dad?

Alison: It’s awesome that our family is our team and to have them around us as we’re becoming the best versions of ourselves. We have such a great dynamic because the way we talk things out is always through eyes of understanding, never through eyes of judgement. We always try to better ourselves in every way as a team.  

Marla: We’ve been able to get some amazing constructive criticism from people that we know have our best interest at heart. It’s the dream life to do what I love with the people I love.

You recently sang at Viña del Mar where you performed with your dad, what was that experience like?

Alison: Viña del Maris one of the most unforgettable experiences because it’s honestly the dream of every artist to be able to perform on that stage, so there’s a lot of pressure and a lot of excitement at the same time. They call that crowd the “monster” and it can either love you or definitely hate you. We gave it our all to be able to connect with every single person there and honestly, it filled our hearts.

Marla: We had so much adrenaline going through our veins right before. Millions of people watching, I mean that really shook my legs, I was terrified. It was scary, but in a good way. Right when I saw Sebastian Yatra, who I think is really hot, in the front row I was like ‘oh my God no.’
