My sister’s voice is the closest on the planet to my own. And even though our voices are very different in some ways, they hold a similarity that can only exist through shared DNA — anyone who’s ever heard us sing together knows it’s sometimes hard to tell who’s doing what. That truth is one of the biggest blessings of my life. The subliminal understanding we share provides us each with a partner, a co-pilot, a comrade in song.
We also share a desire to understand what it is we do beyond our natural instinct to sing, and both like to explore the artistic impetus and look at the work we do as the product of our experience. Sissy has a new website up. Go to it and read what she has to say about her body of work. She has written about each of her records — sixteen of them — in a vulnerable and deep way that sheds light on not just her artistic process but the artistic process in general. I’m delighted that she’s done it. You will be too.
Peace and love and happy Wednesday,
