“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.”

Recently nominated for a Spotlight award for best folk group, River Sister has opened for national act and NPR tiny desk favorite, My Bubba, toured the Northeast, and kicked off the National Concert to End Gun Violence. They can be found in their hometown of Portsmouth, New Hampshire and nearby venues in Boston and Portland delivering heart-filled, joyous and inspiring performances.
