He’s My Brother She’s My Sister‘s unique yet familiar sound exudes the earnestness of folk, the colorfulness of glam rock,  the rawness of blues, the theatrics of cabaret, and the hip shake of rock-a-billy.

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. Oliver Newell plucks the stand up bass with joyous flair. Aaron Robinson plays lead guitar on a lap slide, veering from nuanced psychedelica to American roots riffs. 

The band’s infectious rhythms and high energy make the sounds come alive and cause even uninitiated crowds to erupt in dance.

They have toured the US extensively and  have shared the stage with The Devil Makes ThreeEdward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zero’s, The Blow, Spindrift, Miranda Lee Richards, The Growlers, Local Natives, Frank Fairfield, Tapes N’ Tapes, Alexander, Dawes, Dr. Dog, My Morning Jacket, & many others.

The band has just emerged from the recording studio with producer Thom Monahan 

(Devendra Banhart, The Rosewood Thieves, Vetiver, Fruitbats, Little Joy, Beachwood Sparks), where they have been working on their first full-length album expected to be released in early 2012.
