“It is rare that you walk into a recording studio to put a track down with someone and you feel like you have been singing together for your entire life,” shares Wainwright in an Instagram post. “You know instinctively what the other will do and you just give yourself over to the joy of singing which is probably one of the greatest joys in life. I obviously have that feeling with my sister Martha and I guess I will have to call Brandi now a sister: a sister in voice. ❤️”
