Sarah Command – as one half of the Command Sisters – Sarah and her sister Charlotte wield the power to turn popular culture red, the colour being a signature feature of a finely crafted image. After playing together since childhood, the siblings honed on a distinct sound and style that has brought them to what you get today. Sarah drew on a lifelong love of shred gods, such as Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and Orianthi, as Charlotte nodded to the songcraft of Sia and The Weeknd, cultivating a sharp signature sound steeped in mind-blowing musicality and tight hooks. Their sense of style got just as loud with a crimson take on high fashion. This careful presentation turned heads. Not only did they perform across the United States and Canada, but they attracted partners such as Martin Guitars, PRS Guitars, Marshall Amps, MAC Cosmetics, and Boss/Roland, to name a few. Additionally, they cultivated a fervent social media following through consistently eye-popping posts. Mind you, they impressively did all of this without one official release. Since inking a deal with 21 Entertainment, Universal Music Canada the duo has released a handful of catchy hit singles along with their debut EP Rouge.

A life-long art appreciator, Nicole has pursued the arts her entire life, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from Loyola Marymount.

From there she has had a wild ride at the forefront of figuring out how music and the internet could work together in harmony.
