About Sista Jean McClain

SISTA JEAN
Sista Jean started out as a background singer in Los Angeles and her career has ranged
from background singer for the likes of Tina Turner, Cher, Mick Jagger, Keb’ Mo’, and
Celine Dion, then transformed into Pepper MaShay “International Dance Diva” (as a
five-time Top 10 Billboard charting artist), and then brought it back home to her Blues
and Acoustic music roots as Sista Jean, Sista Jean & CB, and Sista Jean’s Blues Machine.
Influenced by the West Coast sound, Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Joan Armatrading,
and by Odetta Holmes ("The Voice of the Civil Rights Movement”), Sista Jean has
toured the world with R&B and Jazz artist Bobby Caldwell and Blues and Jazz artist
Hugh Laurie. Either with her acoustic partner Carlyle Barriteau (aka CB) or her backup
four-piece band The Blues Machine, she has been grateful to have won the Southern
California Blues Society “Battle of the Bands” (2012), 3rd Place in The John Lennon
Songwriting Contest with “Love is Callin” (2015), Hollywood Music in Media Awards
(HMMA) Best Blues (2015), and HMMA Best Song (2016).
“If there is one thing in life I could say to people, it would be to never give up on the
dreams and goals you set for yourself in life.”
For 2019, Sista Jean & CB and Sista Jean’s Blues Machine are looking to perform the
various Blues songs from Back To The Root (debut album) and Requiem For A
Heavyweight (Tribute to Odetta) (sophomore album).
