Fayetteville’s own Witchsister just opened its spring performances March 16 with stepmom and Modeling at George’s Majestic Lounge. The family foursome is comprised of three sisters — Stevie, Stephanie and Skylar — and a cousin, Kelsey, who all share the last name Petet. Vocalist Stephanie says that being related has its benefits and deficits when making music together.

“It makes it easier at times, because we all share similar flows, or processing. But then also difficult at times, because we are so comfortable, there is no filter,” she shares. The group weaves together several influences to create their heavy rock-punk, metals “with a wee bit prog” sound. Drummer Kelsey is a fan of pop punk drumming, bassist Stevie likes electronic and dance music, guitarist Skylar favors both pop and industrial music while vocalist Stephanie draws influence from soul and blues. “The morning after a Witchsister show will leave you with the most massive bangover you’ve ever had,” their website reads.

Stephanie adds that this summer they “are working on an all-female fems and thems showcase,” and have “a new album in the mix.” In the meantime they will melt faces at Doomsday at Prairie Street Live on April 23 and are planning a show at Smoke and Barrel sometime in the summer. Check out their music on streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and bandcamp. More information about the band is at witchsistermusic.com.
