Patrice Pike is an American singer, songwriter, and musician (her date of birth is not known). After performing in Austin, Texas and the surrounding areas for many years as lead singer of Sister 7 (aka Little Sister), Patrice was a contestant on Rock Star: Supernova. She has since continued to perform and record music as a solo artist.

Early life

Patrice grew up in Dallas, Texas, where her stepfather was a musician playing in local clubs. Her introduction to music was a ukelele she received as a child. When she was 15, she began attending the Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (aka the 'Arts Magnet'). Former attendees of the school include Edie Brickell and Zac Baird; among Patrice's classmates were Erykah Badu and Roy Hargrove.

Little Sister

Pike soon met her future guitarist and musical partner Wayne Sutton at a street festival in Dallas. After a brief stint in Austin, Sutton returned to Plano, Texas,a suburb of Dallas, where the two formed a band and began writing and rehearsing. Originally called 'Little Sister', the band began playing in Dallas on stages such as Club Dada, but soon relocated to the thriving musical scene of Austin. They quickly moved from playing the Black Cat as an opening band for local favorites Soul Hat into a headlining role of their own, and remained popular in Austin for many years.

Due to naming conflicts over the name 'Little Sister', a very popular bar-band moniker, the band eventually decided to change the name to 'Sister 7'; however, the change was not well-received by fans, who generally continued to use the original name.
