He's My Brother, She's My Sister
He's My Brother, She's My Sister
He’s My Brother She’s My Sister seem to invite a broad range of colorful words to describe their music and performances: “flamboyant folk,” “psych-acoustic,” “estranged and glamorous” and “vaudeville-y.” No doubt this is due to their mélange of musical styles, both modern and antique; their eccentric attire and sense of expression, both sincere and theatrical; and, their unique instrumentation, which includes a rhythm section bolstered by a tap dancer.

Brother and sister Robert Kolar and Rachel Kolar split vocal duties, with Robert on guitar and kick drum and Rachel on tambourine. Their voices range from boisterous to introspective, from breezy to emotive. Lauren Brown adds full-body percussion with her fluid tap-dancing and drumming. Oliver Newell adds stand up bass with joyous flair. Aaron Robinson plays lead guitar on a lap slide, veering from nuanced psychedelica to American roots riffs.

He's My Brother She's My Sister played 150+ shows in 2011 and the band will hit that mark again in 2012. These have included capacity and sold out shows in NYC, Brooklyn, Austin, Miami, Nashville, DC, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and San Francisco. The band has performed at the Sundance, High Sierra, Lowdown Hudson River Blues and SXSW festivals plus they will appear at this year's famed Austin City Limits festival. He's My Brother She's My Sister has shared the stage with Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Neko Case, The Knitters, The Growlers, Alexander & Friends, Devil Makes Three, Fitz & The Tantrums, Local Natives and Charles Bradley.
Copper & Glass
Copper & Glass
What if everything that glitters isn’t gold? What if nothing is? What if, as the French philosopherRené Descartes famously pondered, we are destined to look back at all the shiny things we’ve piled into a massive heap in the corner of our tidy little lives only to find that all we’ve ever really had was a little copper and glass?
This is the question the five men from California's agricultural Central Valley have set out to answer with an organic, uncomprisingly authentic musical approach. The hard questions, they believe, are always best asked in a song. And the best songs move us ever-closer to the answers.
Copper & Glass is adept at churning out soft ballads and heavy groove-driven rockers alike - hearkening back to the straight-ahead rock 'n' roll of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Neil Young, while keeping a firm grasp on the twenty-first century sensibilities of more cerebral modern Americana/Roots artists like Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne, and Mumford and Sons. Heavy on pedal steel, mandolin, organ, rhodes piano, and electric guitar; Copper & Glass provides an always interesting combination of sounds against a finely woven tapestry of sentiment.
The band is currently planning a worldwide media campaign to support a self-titled release and Spring 2013 tour of the Southeastern U.S. Members have performed at notable Los Angeles area venues such as the legendary Whisky-a-Go-Go, a host of established venues in the San Francisco Bay Area, and countless stops across the West Coast and beyond. C&G has shared the stage with highly established bands such as widely popular Militia Group recording artists "Lakes" and the Central Valley's own "Poor Mans Poison," who hold the distinction of being the only independent artists to ever sell out the legendary Hanford Fox Theater.
Sioux City Kid
Sioux City Kid
Led by songwriter Jared Griffin, Sioux City Kid came together in 2009 and has since morphed, shifted, and evolved into a commanding 7-headed beast of a band. Sioux City Kid quickly gained notoriety in San Francisco for their whiskey-fueled performances and anthemic melodies like “Little Hell” and “Wishin' Well”. Within a year of the bands formation, they had won Live 105's Battle of the Bands, played Twitter's inagural Twestival, and performed at BFD alongside such heavy hitters as Spoon, Hole, Temper Trap and the Limousines at the Shoreline Amphitheatre. The release of their first LP, 2011's Speak of the Devil, But Softly, was greeted with a sold out evening at San Francisco's legendary Great American Music Hall. Sioux City Kid quickly became a mainstay of the SF rock scene. They have headlined sold out evenings at prestigious venues throughout San Francisco including Cafe du Nord, Bottom of the Hill, and the Independent. In 2012, the band was honored to open for Emmylou Harris at Lagunitas. The band is headed back into the studio this winter and their next album, Minutes, Miles, Troubles & Trials, is set for release in 2013.
