THE FIREY STRING SISTAS! - Recording Campaign


FIREY STRING SISTAS! is an independent and self contained ensemble of stellar musicians that celebrate the power, beauty and creativity of women. Our mission is to inspire, uplift and motivate our audiences to participate with us in making the world a more harmonious and humane place. We are committed to doing so through our recordings and memorable performances that endure far beyond the stage.

Firey String Sistas!  consist of cellist and founder Nioka Workman joined by Marlene Rice on violin, vocalist/pianist Mala Waldron, bassist Melissa Slocum and drummer Camille Gainer -Jones.

After the release our debut CD, “That's What She Said” to critical acclaim, we are now ready to enter the studio again with fresh material - a new musical collection that will include commentary on the current political climate in the United States, as well as a variety of personal and collective works, all thought provoking yet immediately enjoyable!

We are proud of what we have been able to accomplish so far, but now need your assistance to continue our mission of spreading inspiration through music. For an independent group the costs of recording a quality CD are daunting! We are asking for your financial support to help us make our next recording. Our goal for this campaign is to raise $8,000.00.

Your participation will help offset the formidable costs of recording, mixing , editing, and mastering, in addition to packaging and manufacturing the physical CD. Please consider making as generous a contribution as you can to our project.

Thank You for taking the time to review our campaign. We hope you will partner with us in birthing a new musical gem to the world.



Press about the Firey String Sistas!

Our very first CD;' That's What She Said' was received with raving reviews from fans and press.  All About Jazz  critic Hrayr Attarian wrote,

" That's What She Said   is a charming and delectable work by five supremely talented musicians. It is simultaneously accessible and sophisticated, poignant and erudite and, as such, should have a wide appeal. It certainly whets the appetite for more to come from this exceptional collective". (February 07, 2017)
