To PETER MULVEY, there is no such thing as a straight and narrow path. At least, not one that he has any interest in taking.
A live-wire on any stage, Peter is an acoustic singer/songwriter/guitarist who, in fact, defies this categorization. His ferocious guitar playing whisks him through more tunings than he has fingers in the course of an evening, as he winds his way from full-throated rockers to deceptively plain-spoken musings. Whether solo or accompanied, Mulvey is someone who just naturally commands a stage:
“Peter Mulvey is one of the most accomplished guitarists you’re ever likely to hear… utterly original… it is nigh on impossible to explain him to the uninitiated… his intelligent and sometimes complex songs engage both hemispheres of the listener’s brain… one of the finest, most complete entertainers… stunning.” – The Irish Examiner
The Milwaukee-based sister duo SISTASTRINGS combines their classical background with R&B with a touch of gospel influence that culminates in a unique sound. With thick string harmonies between violin (Chauntee Ross) and cello (Monique Ross) and soulful voices, SistaStrings takes you on a journey. The sisters not only write and arrange but find pleasure sitting in with musicians and exploring what sounds come from improvisation and spontaneity.use R&B and classical string arrangements into something entirely new to the Milwaukee music scene.
Outside of playing music venues, SistaStrings goes into schools and conducts assemblies, encouraging young people to pursue the arts and to not be afraid of hard work. Outreach and representation are important to them as African American string players. They are advocates for diversity in the arts and promote social justice in all that they do musically. SistaStrings released their debut EP this summer.

Jeff also plays piano in The Best Westerns, a delightfully danceable six piece, Bob Wills & The Texas Playboys – focused project. When appearing in his solo singer songwriter form, Jeff crafts playful, genre-hopping pop music that reflects an eclectic range of influences.
