Indie Inside: Sister Says

Sister Says is a soulful genre-bending pop duo/band based out of Vancouver fronted by siblings Gillian and Robert Thomson. Not your typical soulful jam or singer-songwriter duo, their music pulses with the soul, telling heartbreak tales and stories about the wonderful and ever-changing conundrum that is life. Throughout the years Sister Says has had the opportunity to perform diverse shows that include: The TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival, The Islands Folk Fest in Duncan, The Talking Stick Festival in Vancouver, and at Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto opening for Stars and Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. Gillian and Robert also collaborate on Meet the Collective Podcast where they talk with artists of all disciplines about life and art. Currently the band just released their second album “Heart Placement.” The album is a departure from their first album and features songs that are sure to rouse the spirit.

“Their sound is smooth, their lyrics intelligent and their creative chemistry produces a new take on songs redolent to Annie Lennox and The Eurhythmics and the 1980s group Everything But the Girl.” – BC Musician Magazine, Janet Rogers.
