Sister Speak Bio: www.sisterspeakmusic.com/biography
Canadian born Sherri Anne is at the core of Sister Speak. Whether performing an electrifying band show or a set of heartfelt acoustic arrangements, Taylor Guitar’s artist Sister Speak has connected deeply with a diverse fan-base throughout the globe.
With 2 studio albums and one live record, Sister Speak has performed at various festivals, iconic venues and events worldwide and shared the stage with The Doobie Brothers, Xavier Rudd, Mike Love and Air Supply among others. All 3 albums and first singles from new record have aired on radio in North America, Europe and the UK – most notably CBC, NPR, and BBC.
Sister Speak first connected with a global fanbase when debut album Rise Up For Love came to life. While front-woman Sherri Anne was in recovery from a major injury, her experience of extreme vulnerability opened the channels to pursue what truly inspired her; it was during this trying time when the majority of the songs for “Rise Up For Love” came through – imbued with the notion of rising out of whatever hardship is going on, coming back to the people, to the world, with the desire to share compassion, life and love. The album led the way for a ‘Best Pop’ award at the San Diego Music Awards.
After touring the first record relentlessly, folk-electronic experiment The Stand EP was recorded in Los Angeles and born. The title track was written on a rooftop in Mexico in the wake of a tropical storm during Sister Speak’s first international tour. For the video, Sherri Anne traveled to Peru and Bolivia with a film crew. It was a daunting, bold and spiritual journey that reflected the pure conviction of the song. A call to be courageous and vulnerable in this highly complex socio-political atmosphere.
After returning from The Stand EP world tour, Sister Speak released “Live at the Belly Up” on vinyl record with her full band in February 2020 at the same legendary venue it was recorded at in San Diego, CA. “Crush – live”, “Will it Ever – live” and “Lose Control – live (feat The Brothers Burns)” premiered on CBC Vancouver, 88.5FM in Los Angeles, and 91X San Diego respectively.
Sister Speak’s fourth record, Love For All is due out April 1, 2022. The Alt/Indie/Blues/World LP is as high energy as it is vulnerable. The record features Anne’s introspective lyrics, strong vocal and guitar melodies, and the electric talents of her bandmates Stephen Haaker, Sarven Manguiat and Jacob Miranda Jr. Extraordinary guest musicians Bonnie Brooksbank on violin, Jon Deas – keyboardist for Glary Clark Jr, Aaron Durr and The Brother Burns add their magic as well. 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. The band is based in Vancouver BC and Los Angeles CA with some tour breaks spent in Vermont.
