About River Sister:
“Vocal harmonies that’ll make you blush with a rhythm section that adds a moving, colorful crush,” commented EDGE magazine when listing River Sister in one of its best-of-the-year lists. Vocalists Stefanie Guzikowski and Elissa Margolin deliver a sultry, silky blend alongside the addictive grooves of bassist Nate Therrien and drummer PJ Donahue. Indeed, the regional press notes, “the combination of these pieces makes for a fresh, cathartic addition to the indie-folk cannon.”

River Sister has opened for NPR tiny desk favorite, My Bubba, toured the Northeast, and kicked off the National Concert to End Gun Violence. Their single, River Breeze, was recently featured in the film, Merrimack: River at Risk on NH PBS. River Sister was also recently featured on NH Chronicle’s Summer Songfest Series on WMUR. True to their slogan, #harmonyfeelsgood, River Sister’s performances are known for generating palpable joy.
