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.
