SISTERS is an orchestra of two - Andrew Vait and Emily Westman. Marked by luscious harmonies, haunting melodies, and layered rhythmic patterns, Vait and Westman cover more ground than should be possible for two musicians. Live, their genre-gender-bending brand of indie pop is as endearing as it is virtuosic.
Gelatinous Blog's Jared Brannan, proclaims, “It's honestly hard to fathom that the compositions these two generate can be performed with a sum total of 8 appendages and two voices. The quality of that astonishment [is] not lost upon the crowd, as each rawkus round of shouts and applause between songs [feels] like a celebration of profound technical musicianship.”
Vait and Westman first met while attending the University of Miami's Frost School of Music. A series of fateful decisions, largely made independently of one another, brought them both to the Pacific Northwest, where they danced proverbial circles around one another in various musical projects before ultimately coming together to form SISTERS in the spring of 2014. Quickly garnering attention as the new band to watch, SISTERS’ style is the consummate blend of formal music training and bold creativity. “It's taking multi-tasking to the extreme,” says Westman. “We want the audience to feel like they're watching a magic show.”
