Sissy grew up in near Lawton, Oklahoma in a family full of musicians. She was classically trained, and as a teen went to Europe to sing classical music, but eventually found her own sounds and turned towards her country roots. After high school she moved to Spokane, Washington and joined the Bands The Chart-Toppin’ Hits and Ramblin’ Resonators which were technically more rockabilly but relied heavily on classic country and western swing influences. The Ramblin’ Resonators went on tour in the spring and summer of 2009 but amicably disbanded in August of that year and Sissy moved to Los Angeles. In the 3 years she lived in Los Angeles she focused on her songwriting and played locally.
After her time in Los Angeles she moved on to Austin but stayed only a short time, just under a year, because as the song says “It don’t matter who’s in Austin, Bob Wills is still the king” and she felt that the music in Austin had sadly lost Bob Wills. When she left Austin she returned to Oklahoma for about a year to be closer to family but eventually got restless and now lives in Kansas City, Missouri. Since landing in Kansas City she has formed a band and most recently recorded her current demos with Dead Horse Productions, and is planning a full length album with them coming later this spring. She credits Kansas City as “The happiest place on Earth” and has no current plans to move on, but plans to tour as much as possible while keeping a home in Missouri.
