Supports listeners through the process of overcoming pain and turning that negative energy into strength, love, and wisdom.

Sister Stone is a singer, rapper, songwriter, leadership coach, and nature guide based out of Detroit, Michigan. Her latest release "Still Here" delivers a healthy dose self-affirmation behind a harmony-stacked vocal mix, a Rhodes electric piano, and some spaced-out jazz funk.

With a retro-classic, analog feel that might remind you of Lauren Hill, Sister Stone's new track supports listeners through the process of overcoming pain and turning that negative energy into strength, love, and wisdom. A fluid and muscular bass line matches up with a syncopated groove to deliver a well-timed backdrop for Stone and her waves of vocal flow, while hints of synthesizer and hand percussion add spice to the uplifting beat. Sister Stone is a multitalented artist making a name for herself at the intersection of soul, pop, and hip hop.

The music of Sister Stone weaves prayers together with healing. Visit her on Instagram.
