**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.
