Fayetteville’s Witchsister just opened its spring performances on March 16 with her mother-in-law and her modeling at George’s Majestic Lounge. The family quartet is made up of three sisters — Stevie, Stephanie, and Skylar — and a cousin, Kelsey, who all share the last name Petet. Singer Stephanie says being bonded has its pros and cons when making music together.
“It sometimes makes it easier because we all share similar flows or treatments. But sometimes also difficult, because we are so comfortable, there is no filter,” she shares. The band weaves together several influences to create their heavy rock-punk, metal “with a tiny bit of prog” sound. Drummer Kelsey is a fan of pop punk drums, bassist Stevie likes electronic and dance music, guitarist Skylar favors both pop and industrial music while singer Stephanie draws her influence from soul and blues. “The day after a Witchsister show will leave you with the most massive bangover you’ve ever had,” reads their website.
Stephanie adds that this summer they’re “working on an all-female showcase for women and others” and have “a new album in the mix.” In the meantime, they’ll be melting faces at Doomsday at Prairie Street Live on April 23 and are planning a show at Smoke and Barrel sometime in the summer. Discover their music on streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and bandcamp. More information about the band is at witchsistermusic.com.
