Australian sisters Sharon and Christine Muscat sing together in perfect pop harmony. They also write their own music. Sharon plays the piano and guitar, while Chris adds her skills with the piano and drums.
The young gifted duo grew up listening to tunes by distinguished female artists like Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Madonna, Janet Jackson, and Paula Abdul. Later the sisters added groups such as TLC, the Backstreet Boys, and fellow Australians Savage Garden to their favorite list.
Still in their teens, Sharon (the youngest at 15) and Chris (19) released a debut single, "Sister," in 1999. It started out right up on the Top 20 charts in the United Kingdom. The hit "Sister" was followed by a remix, and then in 2000 by a second single, "What's a Girl to Do." During that same year Sister 2 Sister completed a debut full-length album, One. The story on the album's title is that the young sisters sound so much alike, that they earned the nickname "One." It seemed perfect for their first album. That album went gold, and earned the duo three more hit singles.
In between recording sessions, and making videos, the sisters travel a lot, performing in the United States, France, Spain, Italy, Sweden, and Germany, as well as their homeland, Australia. They have appeared with groups like Five, B*witched, Blaque, Innocence, and BBMak. Sister 2 Sister has also completed a Disney radio tour, a Disney World tour, a Nickelodeon tour, and toured as one of the opening acts for Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Savage Garden, and others.
It's easy to see how these young sisters ended up being voted Best Newcomer at the Disney Music Awards in 2000. ~ Charlotte Dillon
