Biography Austin recording artist Patrice Pike, fresh from her multi-category win ( Musician of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Rock Band, Best Female Vocalist and Induction in the Music Hall of Fame) at this year's Austin Music Awards SXSW 2007; and a standout tour in New Zealand in support of her third full solo release, �Unraveling� tours Central and Mid-Western US immediately after SXSW. The album, released by her own new label TapeSlap Records and distributed by Redeye USA, showcases Pike�s well established substance as a songwriter and dynamic versatility as a performer. In 2006 Patrice Pike finished as a Top 7 finalist in the prime time television show Rock Star which introduced her to a worldwide television audience (10 million national viewers weekly). Pike has long enjoyed a loyal following extending back to her days as the front woman for the band Sister 7. Propelled by Pike�s soaring vocals and highly literate songwriting, Sister 7 spent the �90s flirting with rock stardom. The quartet charted a couple of Billboard hits and toured with the likes of the Dave Matthews Band, John Fogerty, and the Lilith Fair (featuring Sarah McLachlan and Natalie Merchant). After the 1999 Arista shakeup that featured the unceremonious ousting of industry legend Clive Davis, the band found itself without a label and discouraged, and subsequently disbanded. Pike wasted no time plunging into a solo career, founding an indie label with Sister 7 band mate Wayne Sutton. She has toured internationally as a solo artist, including main stage appearances at festivals as prestigious and stylistically diverse as High Sierra, Kerrville, Strawberry, and Austin City Limits. She�s also picked up some hardware, claiming the overall grand prize in the 2004 USA Song-writing Competition. Patrice Pike is a socially aware, spiritually grounded artist on top of her game as both a songwriter and a performer. �Unraveling� features a strong and decidedly eclectic collection of songs ranging from the made-for-radio Beautiful Thing to the socially acute Ridiculous Mess to an absolutely superb trio of R&B tunes.
