"Sweetback Sisters Emily Miller (who also sings with Starry Mountain Singers, who sang last week at the Church of the Holy City) and Zara Bode may not be blood relations, but their precise, family-style harmonies recall the best of country music from the Everlys to The Judds, as well as the spirited rockabilly energy of Wanda Jackson, one of the band's role models. Like the artists they admire, the Sweetbacks are concerned with the traditional subjects of heartbreak, revenge, remorse and staying strong in the face of relationships gone wrong, albeit with a contemporary sensibility."

"The Sisters have been touring relentlessly since they released Chicken Ain't Chicken in 2009. Their new CD, Looking For A Fight showcases the band's razor sharp musicianship, complex arrangements and growing confidence as songwriters."
