“Chicago Dream” by Sister Speak

Rootsy-alternative outfit led by Canadian singer/songwriter and guitarist Sherri-Anne, Sister Speak, combines captivating vocals and guitar stylings with dynamic beats from drummer Lisa Viegas.

The duo is based in San Diego, CA. Their current line-up features the addition of Tolan Shaw’s soulful vocal harmonies and catchy guitar riffs augmented by Meir Shitrit’s warm Gibson electric and the bass grooves of Jacob Miranda. The sunny city welcomed Sister Speak with a “Best New Artist” nomination at the 2011 San Diego Music Awards, and recently a 2014 nomination for Best Pop Album.

The band released their album Rise Up For Love via The Vinyl District on September 23. The single “Chicago Dream” has been compared to “Mazzy Star doing a futuristic take on Stevie Nicks’ work with The Heartbreakers.”

Having toured nationally, Sister Speak has recently opened for major artists Chris Isaak, Air Supply and Henry Kapono, appeared on various TV and radio stations, and played notable venues such as NAMM, Humphrey’s Mainstage in SanDiego, Belly Up Tavern, Hard Rock Cafe Chicago, headlined at Casbah San Diego and Mayne Stage Chicago, and played various festivals throughout the USA and western Canada.
