Sister Ray

London Calling oktober 2022, Saturday


Sister Ray is the project of Edmonton-born Métis songwriter Ella Coyes. Conceived out of necessity as a self-designed vehicle built to examine trauma with unflinching honesty. The Canadian’s music is steeped with cultural influences. Gospel bluegrass and 90’s country were a backdrop of their youth, while the traditional Métis music played at home brought them closer to their heritage and taught them a form of storytelling rooted in collective value, resilience and safety. Sister Ray creates an unyielding and intimate form of indie rock that’s rooted in the folk tradition, filled with reflections without blame and toughness.
