Sister Mercy

Blues, R&B
Location: Portland

Sister Mercy possesses a high-energy, blues-driven sound that’s been getting audiences out of their seats and onto the dance floor since 2013. With deep roots in the Oregon music scene, the band is known for soulful, sultry songs that smoothly transition to funky blues rock bolstered by the powerhouse, gospel-tinged vocals of frontwoman April Brown. A 2017 Muddy Award nominee for Best Contemporary Blues Act, Sister Mercy won the Cascade Blues Association’s Journey To Memphis competition in 2016 and 2018, where they were twice semifinalists in the annual International Blues Challenge. For fans of Aretha Franklin, Adele, Etta James and Mavis Staples, their anticipated sophomore record Diamonds is out now on all digital platforms.
