"... Sister Cookie takes the early part of the afternoon thanks to a performance of full-throated R&B that marks her as a special talent to keep an eye on. For a band of guitar, bass, drums and brass, this is a huge sound matched by a powerful voice that's in full evidence during the soulful Take Me Home."

Julian Marszalek, The Blues Magazine, 2016

Book tickets for Sister Cookie

Her debut single, a version of Willie Jones' 1962 scorcher, Where's My Money, on which she was accompanied by Turin's Soulful Orchestra, was released on the Italian label, Soulful Torino Records, in August 2014. A limited-edition, vinyl-only release, it sold out almost instantly. However, the demand for Cookie's rendition has so outweighed the supply, that Soulful Torino released a second pressing in December 2015. She has also released singles with London-based bands MFC Chicken [DMAF (Do Me A Favour b/w Tea For Two, FOLC Records, 2015] and and The Future Shape of Sound [Rise Up, Freshly Squeezed Music].
