SISTERS
SISTERS
SISTERS is an orchestra of two, and their togetherness is infectious. Within their first four shows, the Seattle duo opened for Allen Stone at Chateau Ste Michelle and played the inaugural Fisherman's Village Music Festival; within three months, their lead singles, Back 2 U and Buzzard, were licensed by Starbucks, and within their first year, they were bookeed at Sasquatch! Music Festival, Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival and Capitol Hill Block Party. Their genre-gender-bending brand of indie pop isas endearing as it is virtuosic, as pointed out by Gelatinous Blog's Jared Brannan, who proclaimed, "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." This is the togetherness of SISTERS, and everywhere they go, audiences, musicians, and critics alike are cheering their praise.

Emily and Andrew 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. They make an expansive sound, incorporating an array of instruments and often playing them simultaneously. "It's taking multi-tasking to the extreme," says Westman. "We want the audience to feel like they're watching a magic show." Marked by luscious harmonies, haunting melodies, and layered rhythmic patterns, Emily and Andrew cover more ground than should be possible for two musicians. Radiating the joy of playing music together, Seattle Gay Scene may have said it best: SISTERS is about "making music with your long lost best friend."

With the excitement surrounding SISTERS reaching a fever pitch, their focus remains on building their future together. Amidst industry momentum, collaborations with national artists set for eminent release, and a lockbox full of polished recordings, a new world is unfolding, and they can't wait to share it with you...

Chad Valley
Hugo Manuel has been releasing music under the name Chad Valley since 2010. A longtime signee of the influential Cascine Records, Manuel will release his third full-length album in May 2018, following his sophomore album, Entirely New Blue which saw him traverse the world many times over touring his impressive and mesmerising one-man show.

Young Hunger, Chad Valley’s first full-length album came fully formed in 2012 with an a-list of collaborations from Twin Shadow, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Glasser and caught the attention of Pitchfork, Fader and other mainstream indie media. Hot on the heels on this release came the blockbuster movie Warm Bodies which featured his song Shell Suite and cemented Chad as a enduring favourite and not just a chillwave flash-in-the-pan.

Taking inspiration from his constant touring and nomadic life (the upcoming record was recorded at home in Oxford, UK between tours) the upcoming record is a ode to lost loves, heartbreak and young love... everything that makes pop music pop.

Chad Valley's new album IMAGINARY MUSIC is out May 25th on Cascine/Paper Bag/Rallye
