As many of your know CBC in Canada is hunting down new Canadian talent. We haven’t called upon our fans in a while, and if you can take a moment to vote for Sister Speak “Chicago Dream” we would greatly appreciate it! With hundreds of votes so far CBC has been airing the track already! If we can keep the momuntum rolling this could lead to more festival opportunities, extensive radio play in Canada, and some quality music gear.

**Sister Speak’s Okanagan Roots:
We chose Kelowna as our region for this contest as most of the songs on Sister Speak’s Rise Up For Love album were written while Sherri Anne was home in the Okanagan recovering from an injury. The BC landscape and wisdom of the region have been a deeply inspiring influence on the songwriting and metaphorical lyrics of this album.
