Little Spear Band To Perform At East End Street Festival

October 25, 2014

Little SpearHouston–If you took Freddy Fender, Bonnie Raitt, and Janis Joplin and mixed them all together, you would get the new up and coming star, Sherita Perez. Her band Little Spear will be performing today at the third annual East End Street Festival. For being so young, Sherita has gotten noticed by music critics and promoters. She was voted one of Houston’s top 10 bands by Houston Press in her genre of Texas Centric Americana. Born into a family of singers, instrument pickers, and preachers it was only natural Sherita would take to composing, singing, and picking a guitar. At age five, she was already composing a song about her friend Ship and she never stopped.

Folk singer Don Williams once described song writing as cutting your veins and letting your story flow out in lyrics and chords. Sherita may not write about the traditional country themes of getting drunk, cheating, jail, momma, or trains but her personal story and her unique world view is woven into her music writing. Sherita has had to overcome poverty and serious health problems to get to where she is. This formative foundation has made her a strong contender to put her heart and soul into her performing.

Sherita is a typical Millennial out to collaborate rather than compete. She and fellow musician Rhonda Roberts teamed up to share the resources, contacts, struggles as well as the stage to make a name for themselves. So far so good. They were able to cut their first music CD at Bubble Studio in Austin , Texas the Nashville of Texas music. Sherita and Rhonda want to foster this collaborative spirit among other Houston musicians to have a positive impact in their field and the community. They want to be a positive force for women, the underprivileged and the sick. Sherita’s message for other Latinas is, “Don’t let others classify you and tell you who you are. Define yourself. Respect yourself and others. Find your own path!”

Head out to The East End Street Fest that runs from 11:00 am till 9:00 pm. Little Spear performs at 1:00 pm at the Bud Light stage. The festival is free to the public with lots of food and fun activities for the family. This year’s music lineup has 10 bands performing with the main head liner David Lee Garza.
