“Wow, I mean what’s not to like about that? That is sensational! How groovy is that?! Mark Radcliffe, BBC 6Music
“The most original sound. Like Little Richard, Mark Ronson, Nina Simone and Nick Cave all got locked in a New Orleans speakeasy” – Record Store Day Unsigned Panel 2020
“Her voice is stunning, powerful and unique, and her stage presence hits the back of the room at any venue she plays” – DJ Anne Frankenstein, Jazz FM
“What a voice!” – Robert Elms, BBC London
From London via Lagos, charismatic chanteuse Sister Cookie will take you on an eclectic excursion into the roots & fruits of black music. Old sounds, new tricks. Sensuous, seductive and moody.
Having scooped the prestigious Record Store Day Unsigned 2020 award, her debut album ‘In The Blue Corner’ is available as a limited edition run on stunning turquoise vinyl, released exclusively to indie record stores this November in partnership with Record Store Day.
As well as possessing a distinctive voice that’s tender and sweet when it needs to be, she’s a composer and self-taught pianist who writes honest and raw songs about pain, heartbreak, suffering – all that bad (meaning-good) stuff.
A mainstay on the vintage Soul & R’n’R circuit since 2015, with slots at Wilderness, Latitude, Red Rooster, Port Elliot and more under her belt and touring across Europe with her band, the last 18 months have seen her pick up plays from Craig Charles at 6Music, Resonance, Jazz FM, Amazing Radio and appear in the ’50 Women in Blues’ book in 2019 and host her own regular Boogalloo Radio show, along with a recent interview with Robert Elms on BBC London.
She’s performed at some of the UK’s most esteemed venues including the 100 Club and Union Chapel, The Round Chapel and has enjoyed a number of stints as a guest vocalist with The Soulful Orchestra, Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind, Future Shape Of Sound & MFC Chicken.
