87-year old Dorothy Robinson once commented, "Keep up the weird, I think it's your forte," which is the best description of Nashville's interstellar sensation, The Weird Sisters. Comprising the enigmatic duo of Gabrielle Lewis and Izaac Short, The Weird Sisters have carved a celestial path through the cosmos of sound, that truly denies convention or explanation leaving one with no choice but to move and groove to these Dance Commanders.
While their studio recordings are cosmic symphonies in their own right, The Weird Sisters' sonic journey truly comes alive on stage. Best known for their captivating live performances, the duo's shows are a blend of space disco and funky grunge-punk that ignites the dance floor.
2023 marks quite a year for The Weird Sisters. In addition to touring the Northeast and Midwest, they headlined Tomato Art Fest in East Nashville, opened for Nappy Roots at Local Licks Fest in Paducah, KY and burned it down at Muddy Roots Festival in Cookeville, TN.
The duo’s new full-length LP Who Are The Weird Sisters? releases February 3rd 2024. The album will be available digitally and on vinyl, worldwide. Although they are proud to be 100% DIY, they need help keeping up with the demand. If you are a wizard in the realm of booking or management, drop them a line.
Gabrielle and Izaac's musical partnership is a testament to the magic of opposites attracting, breaking math down into the very essence of the sum being greater than its parts. Izaac's funk-infused guitar and heavy hitting vocals harmonizing with Gabrielle's ethereal soul-melting keyboards and saxophone creates a musical synergy that defies convention.
"There’s a mischievous sensibility underlying their work that echoes Frank Zappa and Prince, as well as some outstanding synthesizer work that brings to mind legends like Bernie Worrell and Don Preston"
-The Nashville Scene
Gabrielle Lewis’ hands seeming to keep a Fender Rhodes electric piano oscillating with a synth horn section Moog’ing on the other. Izaac Short’s funky electric rhythm strokes and star-gazing, party lyricism mold a track worthy of soundtracking a Steven Soderbergh or Guy Ritchie bank heist montage.
“A funk rock banger- that merges the duo’s eclectic musical backgrounds. With Izaac Short’s funkiness and Gabrielle Lewis’ classical training, their clashing styles push their imaginations…generating endless possibilities for what groovy tune they will create next.”
“‘LIVE AND I LEARN’ is a fuzz-drenched, funk-fueled, hammer-down hard-charger of an electric mayhem masterpiece…the video captures the group’s radioactive charisma.”
