America's Got Talent Wiki

In Sterio was a flutist duo from Season 4 of America's Got Talent. It was eliminated in the audition round.


In Sterio consists of Erica Peel and Shivhan Dohse. The duo strives to re-imagine, re-invent and re-define the flute's place in popular instrumental music. Considered pioneers in their field, Shivhan and Erica, Miyazawa Artists, are classically trained, yet stylistically unique. They draw inspiration from rock, jazz, classical, latin, funk, folk, world and electro styles with a sound that has been described as "two flutes - one brain".

Individually, the girls have performed with artists such as Diana Krall, Al Jarreau, Harry Connick Jr., Jeff Goldblum, Olivia Newton John, Chris Botti, Burt Bacharach, Martin Sexton, Jake Shimabukuro, Elvis Costello and Diane Reeves. They have been invited to perform and clinic across the country, holding residencies at Universities such as James Madison University, Texas Tech University, University of Tennessee-Knoxville, University of South Florida and the University of Wisconsin-Madison to name a few. In Sterio has performed at the National Flute Association convention five times, and have been two-time Featured Artists for the Florida Music Educators Association Conventions in Tampa.

In Sterio released their debut album "Frequency" in 2010. They recently released a sophomore album, "Awake", a CD/DVD combo that unifies music and art in an original project inspired solely by the works of abstract artist, Jerry Peel.

In Sterio continues to grow in popularity developing a fan base both within and outside of the flute community. Their diversity contributes to their popularity among classical and mainstream musicians alike, allowing them to feel equally at home in any venue. [1]


In Sterio's audition in Episode 406 consisted of performing a flute arrangement the flutists had written themselves. Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and David Hasselhoff all buzzed the act. All three judges voted "No", eliminating the duo from the competition.
