Sister Says last Thursday at Calabash

Rob and I have been up to all sorts of things lately…

Lately Rob has been traveling to Prince George playing bass with the blues-rock band Bitterly Divine. This week he’ll be traveling more. So far he’s performed at Treasure Cove Casino and Lheidli T’enneh Pavilion. Along with playing bass for different people Rob also writes and performs with indie-singer-songwriter Candace Curr for her music project Candace Curr and Withe. Candace just released a music video for the very catchy Hear me. Check it out below!

Hear Me by Candace Curr and Withe

I’ll be entering festival land for 2 weeks at the Talking Stick Festival, an all Indigenous performing arts festival, running from Feb 17th to March 1st. I assist the festival with marketing and fundraising. This year some of the events/activities I’m looking forward to include: Raven Spirit Dance’s workshops, Tanya Tagaq and Leela Gilday’s concert, Our Generation concert, From Talking Stick to Microphone and theatre such as Children of God and Salt Baby. I’ll also be helping facilitate a workshop that Full Circle and Music BC is hosting called How to plan for an album release.

It’s gonna be busy for Rob and I! During this time we’ll continue adding onto our Ontario tour, building our bookings for the rest of the summer as well as working on our duo set.

See you & talk soon

    Sister Says Performing at Canadian Music Week

    We found out the other day that we will be performing at Canadian Music Week, a large music event in Toronto in May that includes intensives, showcases, awards and a festival.  We’re really happy to have this be part of our Ontario May tour!  Announced Ontario gigs include performing at Musideum, a unique music instrument store and venue, and The Painted Lady, a bar that features rock, funk and soul music as well as burlesque. More dates are coming in…We’re looking at spending much of our time in May performing in Ontario while possibly visiting Quebec to perform. More plans are in the works for performing other BC and Canadian gigs throughout the spring and summer.

    We’re also looking forward to our local Vancouver gigs at Calabash in February and Falconetti’s in March!

    We hope you had a great New Years! We’re really excited to perform more shows and tour our new album Heart Placement. Looks like gigs will pick up again during the spring and summer but we’ve been working on squeezing in a show before that if possible….

    A big thank you again friends for supporting us & for those that came out to our shows in Dec!
