During one typically long dry Perth Summer, siblings Eliza Rogers and James Rogers decided to finally solidify a lifetime of family jams and annual festive season sing-a-longs, into a band called Patient Little Sister.
An acoustic combination of violin, guitar and two voices genetically predisposed to harmony, it wasn't long before people began to sit up and pay attention.
Since then they have supported the likes of They Might Be Giants, Old Man River and San Cisco and showcased at the 2012 Adelaide Fuse Festival.
First single “Priority Tree” was Drum Perth’s single of the week and along with second single “Into The Sun” has received national airplay on triple j’s Roots And All and community radio.
With the lineup no rounded out with the addition of Jason Bale on bass and Alex Megaw on drums, Patient Little Sister are currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on their second EP due out later in 2014.
"Perhaps better known for their other musical acts, Eliza Rogers (Ruby Boots) and James Rogers (Harlequin League) are no strangers to the live music scene in Perth. Their sibling camaraderie is endearing, so it’s no surprise that their performance is as charming as their playful quips. Eliza has a sultry, husky voice with a strength that precedes her tiny frame, weaving in and out of James’ bluesy vocals. Patient Little Sister demonstrates folk-revivalism at its finest, Eliza’s violin evoking a piercing sadness that’s punctuated by her brother’s Dylan-esque guitar repertoire."- Camilla Peffer (Perth Everguide).
"Eliza’s sweet husky vocal tones and onstage openness are endearing and engaging and, when coupled with brother James’ Dylan-esque vocal phrasing and sensitive guitar playing, make for a gentle and captivating sound." -fasterlouder
