Canadian folk/pop collective Sister Speak supports women’s voices through music

June 15, 2017 in news

Canadian native and now San Diego, California-residing Sherri Anne is at the core of the collective Sister Speak, a folk-pop (and rock, blues, and world music) entity that creates warm, uplifting, and thought-provoking acoustic music.  Singer-songwriter Anne (vocals, guitar) is joined by drummer Lisa Viegas and at various points they have collaborated with other artists like Tolan Shaw (lead guitar, harmony vocals), Swift Pony, and Samantha Cathcart.

Sister Speak’s debut album, Rise Up For Love, was released in 2014 and since then, the band has performed over 500 shows and appeared on Canada’s global TV, FM 94.9 San Diego, at National Association of Music Merchants, and at numerous music festivals all over the US and western part of Canada.

The group’s latest single, the lyrically resonant and vocally passionate “The Stand” has arrived with an accompanying video that is a breathtaking montage of footage that Anne compiled with her film crew on an expedition to Peru.  Crisp and vivid shots of panoramic vistas, sacred sites, and up-close perspectives of the daily life of Peruvian natives are on full display in the video.

“The Stand” was produced and recorded by Avli Avliav in Los Angeles, mixed by Alan Sanderson in San Diego, and mastered by Erick Labson in LA at United Mastering.  The track was released at the end of April via RESO Nation.

Sister Speak supports the expression of women’s voices through music.
