Sister Solace Bio:
Founded in the fall of 2015, with direction and arrangements by musician Gabrielle Pietrangelo, Sister Solace features luscious vocal harmonies and retro stylings drawn from the American and Appalachian musical traditions. From ghostly ballads to songs of love, loss, and redemption, this unique ensemble of 13 Tucson voices, a cappella or adorned, with minimal acoustic guitar, bass, or violin, re-invents the past into a dreamy, gorgeous, now.
With an emphasis on community and collaborative effort, Sister Solace performs will perform only one special and not-to-be missed concert event this year. Music that haunts, punctuated with the occasional gospel and sing-along (in the spirit of Woody Guthrie), all of it polished straight up into shine.
Sister Solace released their first title CD in May 2017, which was recorded live at the Scottish Rite Cathedral and mixed & mastered by Jim Waters at Waterworks Recording Studio. The album features Pietrangelo's original harmony arrangements inspired by the American folk tradition. The group's next performance will take place on Friday, April 26, 2019 at the Scottish Rite Cathedral.
