Pike is known to many as the electric front woman for the seminal Austin jam band Sister Seven which she co-founded when she was barely out of The High School for the performing and visual arts at Booker T. Washington in Dallas Texas. Their first major label album was a rare and unique live recording which at that time was unheard of in the music industry for a new breaking band. Patrice wrote and sang Sister Seven's top 10 Billboard hit 'Know What You Mean'. She was the USA Songwriting Competition Grand Prize Winner overall for the song 'My Three Wishes', co-written with her Sister Seven band members. In this contest she also garnered top prize for Pop category for 'Nobody Knows' written with famed songwriter/producer John Shanks. Over the past decade, she has independently released four acclaimed solo records, showcasing her socially astute, literate lyrics alongside her powerful vocals. Her music is eclectic and dynamic bringing together the best of her roots in rock, soul, folk, and electronic soundscapes. She has toured relentlessly, both in the U.S. and overseas, building an impressive grassroots fan base. The resilient Pike has been able to adapt repeatedly to a rapidly changing music landscape that bears no resemblance to the one she entered as a teenager. Patrice has been recently the youngest inducted into the Austin/Texas Music Hall of Fame when she also won Musician of the Year, Best Female Vocalist, and Song of the year in Austin for her song Beautiful Thing, which she debuted on the CBS primetime Television series 'Rockstar' as she had been invited on the show because of her strong talent as a songwriter and her vocal powerhouse. She has continued to grow and evolve as both a songwriter and a performer, and is currently producing arguably the finest work of her music career entitled, 'The Calling'. She has performed in every possible live scenario from shed tours of traveling festivals like Lilith and HORDE tour to music festival institutions like Austin City Limit's, High Sierra, Strawberry and Kerrville festivals as well as community theaters, clubs and house concerts. Long a respected social and environmental activist, she is also the co-founder and now executive director of the Grace Foundation of Texas, an organization that provides services for young adult survivors of homelessness. The Calling will be released later this year and we are seeking worldwide licensing interest as well as management partners.
