Sister Ray (2019)

Edmonton, AB

If there was any doubt that Sister Ray has become one of the most powerful voices in Western Canada, it was promptly stomped out after a stunning standout set opening for the equally devastating Mount Eerie at Sled Island last year. The stark, reverb-drenched improvisations of Ella Coyes amplify the immensity and intensity of her stream-of-conscious words, ensuring that while no Sister Ray song may be heard twice, they are felt fully and communally by every captivated audience.
