He’s My Brother She’s My Sister at the Electric Owl Sept 29 2012.
The Los Angeles band has signed to Park the Van Records for the 2013 release of their debut LP, Nobody Dances in this Town. In advance of the release, the group has embarked on a seven-week long tour, including a performance at Austin City Limits.
Featuring sibling vocalists and a tap dancing drummer, the band is a hearty combo of folk, glam rock, blues, cabaret, and rock-a-billy. Brother and sister Robert (guitar/kick drum) and Rachel Kolar (tambourine) split vocal duties, Lauren Brown adds full-body percussion with simultaneous drumming and tap-dancing, Oliver Newell plucks the stand up bass and Aaron Robinson plays lead guitar on a lap slide.
In the past year, He’s My Brother She’s My Sister has played 150+ live performances, with near-capacity crowds in 16 major US cities. They’ve toured extensively, sharing the stage with Neko Case, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Charles Bradley, Local Natives, My Morning Jacket, and many others.
