Sister Speak Band – Alt-Roots/Blues & World
Canadian born Sherri Anne is at the core of Sister Speak. Whether performing an electrifying full band show or a set of heartfelt acoustic arrangements, this Taylor Guitar sponsored artist has connected deeply with a diverse fan-base throughout the globe. In concert Sister Speak combines passionate Alt/Blues and a touch of world music.
Sherri Anne grew up on Vancouver Island, BC and has spent time residing in a variety of cities that have influenced Sister Speak’s sound. From her early days in Victoria, Vancouver, and the Okanagan to University in Chicago IL, consistent touring through Berlin Germany, residences in San Diego CA, Los Angeles CA and Vermont, and a return home to Victoria BC, her musical pallet has been inspired by a variety of cultures and styles.
Sister Speak’s moving live show has landed them festivals and events world-wide, European tours, concerts at iconic music clubs, and support act slots for Air Supply, The Doobie Brothers, Mike Love and Xavier Rudd among others. Throughout her travels Sister Speak was named “Best Pop” at the San Diego Music Awards, “Top 10 rhythm guitarists” by NBC and recognized as “Breakout BC Artist” on Juice FM in British Columbia. Sister Speak’s music has been featured on CBC, Canadian First Nations Radio, BBC, NPR, select commercial stations like 88.5FM Los Angeles and 91X San Diego, Spotify “Canada’s Top 50” and “California Roots Presents” playlists as well as various college and community radio stations throughout North America, Europe, and Costa Rica.
Sister Speak has 4 albums to date – each of them a result of moments of extreme vulnerability transformed into music. Fourth record, Love For All (L’Amour Pour Tous, Liebe Für Alle), features all-star musicianship and captures a festive “Alt-Blues/World” sound. The album releases to radio April 2022. The record is as high energy as it is vulnerable.
This summer Sister Speak tours Europe and North America in support of the new album. Catch the full band in Germany, Vermont and British Columbia August 2022!
Whether performing solo or as a band, Sister Speak aims to share message-driven music and support the authentic expression of the woman’s voice.
