SISTER SAYS

Recap & Upcoming..

Hi world!

Well….long time no blog (we got a little busy 😉 )! We’re happy to say that we’ve been songwriting for our third album and have started to perform new material at recent shows. It’s always great to get a chance to work out new songs live on stage and we’re excited to say that the audience reaction has been great. We’ve been experimenting with a lot soulful sounds. More shows are booked and are in the works (local + travel) . ALSO Rob and I have been collaborating with a diverse performance group called Urban Ink Collective and have been creative writing, songwriting and working on movement for an interdisciplinary piece called  Silenced which will be presented at rEvolver  Festival on May 12th and 15th. It’s the first time that we’ve ever worked on a piece like this to be presented at a festival!  It’s been quite the journey.

Past shows highlights….

This month Sister Says performed in Victoria for the first time as a duo at  Felicita’s Campus Pub. We had a great time sharing the stage with Isobel Trigger & Anneda! Victoria has an awesome music scene and wonderful people. Photo below taken by our good pal Kaihlee Riley.

We performed a duo show at the Talking Stick Festival in February and shared the stage with Niska Napoleon. The lovely Nadya Kwandibens took some rad live shots of us….here’s one below:

Rob and I took part in an amazing music industry retreat called Aboriginal Music Program for the second time in Falcon Trails in Manitoba from January 31st to February 5th. This time around we did our showcase both solo! At the very end Rob and I  had the opportunity to collaborate with some wicked artists/projects including Melody McKiver, Mob Bounce, Bebe Buckskin, Drezus, Arthur Renwick, Jeremy Dutcher and Wolf Saga .

Here’s pic of me singing with Melody McKiver, Arthur Renwick, Drezus, Mob Bounce and Wolf Saga!:

We had an amazing time at our Sofar Sounds show back in January! It was so great to do a collaborative show with singer-songwriter Claire Love Wilson and play with drummer Trevor Ainsworth. The Sofar staff were so great! We can’t wait to share our Sofar Sounds video with you when it’s ready.

Here’s a snap of us that the Sofar team took:

Until next time…..
