-Sistersound was born in 1992, when singer-songwriter Eve began writing music on his first guitar, a Stratocaster knock-off that he bought from a college friend for $50, and recording on a 4-track cassette recorder. Over the decades, the band has featured a slew of talented accompanying musicians on bass guitar and drums, including (in order of appearance): David Garrett, Michael Lujan, Jeff McElroy, Robbie, Pete Grothey, Ian Kruske, Chris Gallo, Sean Mou-Keefe, Attiss Ngo, Ronnie Matatquin, and Malcolm Posey. Sistersound, in its various incarnations, has subsequently recorded several albums-worth of material, which has remained in relative obscurity, only known to fellow musician, friends, and fans who have given crucial support to Eve and members of Sistersound for over 20 years.
Eve continues to write and record music, with intentions to master and release the recordings; evidence of the craft and hard work that’s been poured lovingly into the project by all the members of Sistersound.

There is a reason why we, the authors at Lady Obscure, invest our time and passion in rescuing bands from the dark. Back in the day, when the Lady herself founded this webzine, she meant to create a special place where you could come to find your next favorite band, talented artists we were just dying to show you… Obscure artists indeed, yet often owners of much more talent and virtuosity than some notorious few. Arkaen it’s a perfect example of what I’m talking about. This band reminds me once again why I began to write reviews in the first place. Their demo, which includes only 4 tracks, has captivated me deeply. And I can’t help but crave for more.
I mean, don’t you just love when you come across a band and album you know squat of, and by the first minute of the first song you’re hooked and turned already into a die-hard fan of them? That’s my kind of love at first sight, guys. Coming from the bay area as our fellow author RJ Dunn (Who actually introduced me to the band) , Arkaen has delivered us a short yet neat tracklist. The band formed by singer Oriol (Uri) Nieto, bassist Eli Remas, drummer Sean Henson, and guitarists Joey Nunez and Garey Rickher; have achieved to bring up a top notch set, genuinely progressive all around, with some notorious heavy influences, and totally charged with emotion.
