Shifty Little Sister is a 4 piece band from Surrey.
Comprising of Christina Al-Wakil (vocals) Moby Pomerence (guitar) David Knowles (bass) and Tony Chick (drums).
They play an eclectic mix of jazz, blues, and fruity Latin grooves.
The first time we saw this band was at the Riverside Club, Staines.
It was an experience that we have not forgotten!
The organizers were very happy that SLS just slotted in at the last moment (for another band) – but they played a wonderful show.
The centre piece of the performance was the curvaceous voice of Christina.
But if that wasn’t enough … she also played some wonderful twisting, yielding trumpet. What a star!
Songs like ‘I Said It’ have tidy rhythms and agile guitars.
These enhance the super-smooth vocal performances of Christina.
Her voice is deeply mysterious. And so damn slinky. It sizzles.
As pure as a black negligee – the vocal hangs around the accompaniment – before temptingly dropping lower – to reveal even more bendsome and voluptuous charms.
You’ve got to check this band out.
