Vait’s Seattle-based powerhouse duo, SISTERS, was formed in 2014 and has enjoyed a four-year run of small victories: appearing on the main stages of Sasquatch! Music Festival, Capitol Hill Block Party and NYC Pride; their song, “Buck”, was placed in a national Toyota ad campaign, and they are now signed to Tender Loving Empire - a boutique record label in Portland, OR.
After SISTERS’ first tour of Europe concluded in late 2017, Vait discovered that a surplus of emotions from world travel produced a proportionate surplus of creativity, and, being a student of social justice, Vait began writing songs with a new narrative. Where “joy as an act of revolutionary defiance in the face of oppression” defines SISTERS, with Little Wins, Vait is now carefully considering his complicity in systems of oppression as a white male in the music industry, and he is retracing his own family lines, which includes battles with clinical depression and addiction. Taking major influence from POC artists; namely, Solange, SZA, Chance The Rapper, and Janelle Monáe, Vait seeks to honor and pay tribute to the black artists who have shaped modern music and culture. He stands fittingly among other white artists who have followed in similar footsteps - Francis and the Lights, Bon Iver, James Blake, Steve Winwood, Peter Gabriel, to name a few.
