Shows in Kelowna, Vernon and Revelstoke

Sister Speak comes home to the Okanagan to share stories from her travels and her high energy indie-rock/blues/world show.

The last two shows in the area sold out and this year, the Vernon show will see $1 from every ticket will go to North Okanagan Hospice Society.

For the first time ever, Sister Speak is bringing her full band up to the Pacific Northwest from Los Angeles—the same core four-piece from their record release show at San Diego’s legendary Belly Up last fall. And Sister Speak has an accidental new live album coming out in September. They are throwing a record release party in Vancouver Sept. 2 at Guilt and Co. to celebrate, and will also hold band concerts in the Okanagan, Kootenays, Alberta and Powell River area leading up to the release show.

“We recorded the entire show at The Stand EP record release in San Diego last fall. The energy of the night is something that fuels me to this day,” said Sherri Anne (aka Sister Speak), who spent much of her upbringing in the Okanagan. “We sent it off to our team and Alan Sanderson (Fleetwood Mac, Fiona Apple) who was a huge part of the first two records put his magic touch on the mixes for 12 songs, and Brian Lucey (Black Keys) livened it up even more with his mastering expertise.”

Prior to opening for the Doobie Brothers in San Diego Sept. 17, Sister Speak returns to the Okanagan.

Revelstoke residents get a free taste of the trio Aug. 25 at Summer Street Fest at 6 p.m. at Grizzly Plaza (www.revelstokeartscouncil.com/events/summer-street-fest/).

Sister Speak’s new single Crush premiered on CBC’s North By Northwest show Aug. 17 following the captivating full band performance at the CBC Vancouver downtown stage. Sister Speak will be releasing the accidental new record “Sister Speak: live at the Belly Up” on CD in September and on vinyl later this year! Pre-order at all upcoming concerts or www.sisterspeakmusic.com/shop.

“I am so excited to bring what we have been working on home to B.C. this summer. And I am so grateful for how much the project has grown to get to where it is today. It just feels right. I feel a common vision with my bandmates, to connect versus impress, to share something special in this world while we are here on this great journey,” said Sherri Anne.

For Kelowna Aug. 24 at Kerry Park and all dates through Record City Vernon Aug. 29, Sherri Anne will be backed by her drummer Stephen Haaker, also known for his drumming with hip hop artist Azealia Banks, and long-time Canadian guitarist Lonny Eagleton, who has just returned from a world tour with pop artist Andy Black. Bandmates Sarven Manguiat (lead guitar) and bassist Jacob Miranda Jr. will join for all concerts Aug. 30 to Sept. 2.
