Einstein's Sister


EINSTEIN’S SISTER - Andrew Brock (bass, backing vocals), Bill Douglas (lead & backing vocals, percussion), Marty Reyhons (drums, backing vocals), Kerry Tucker (lead & backing vocals, guitars, keyboards), Steven Volk (guitars, backing vocals).
Beginning in 1996, EINSTEIN'S SISTER songwriters Bill Douglas and Kerry Tucker chose to write, record and produce a self-titled album independently on compact disc. The duo’s songs attracted the interest of Minneapolis-based OarFin Records, who quickly signed the band and released a second disc, Oceanus in the winter of 1997. The album, featuring "House Of Liars" (which charted #26 at CMJ), ultimately failed to deliver on the promise of the songs, due to creative differences between the producer and the band. Determined to regain complete control over their recordings, the group chose to return to their indie roots and release their next album on their own.
In the spring of ‘99, EINSTEIN’S SISTER released Learning Curves. Featuring "Jealous Time," "My Secret Life," "Destiny Will Ride" and "Mr. Genius," Learning Curves brought the band national attention through internet sales on Amazon.com and Not Lame Records. Music licensing opened another door for the group as songs were used for programming on MTV ("Undressed," "Making The Video," "Road Rules," "Live Through This"), NBC ("Passions") and the Oxygen Network.
Upon the success of Learning Curves, EINSTEIN’S SISTER was invited to submit a track ("Changing Heart") for Full Circle - A Tribute To Gene Clark, as well as perform at the legendary Troubadour for noted L.A. music critic David Bash’s International Pop Overthrow festival.
in 2000, the band released Humble Creatures, their last album, which continued the fine tradition of arresting melodies and insightful lyrics set forth by the Illinois-based group’s critically acclaimed Learning Curves, which gathered praise from Amplifier, Goldmine and Performing Songwriter. Reuniting with co-producer Tom Tatman (Greg Brown, Tripmaster Monkey, House Of Large Sizes), the band recorded the 11 tracks of Humble Creatures at Catamount Recording in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and at Real Trax Studios with Rob Cimmarusti in Davenport, Iowa.
In 2003, the band released Made Easy for Everyone - The Best of Einstein's Sister in Japan, before disbanding the following year.
The band are currently performing a few reunion shows to celebrate the anniversary
re-release of Learning Curves on LP. It is pressed on yellow vinyl and includes a lyric and credits sheet, a download of the original CD with an instrumental version of the album (available for the first time), a 7" single of our version of the ELO classic "Do Ya" (on clear vinyl) and a bonus CD of the instrumental album and several out-takes, covers and live recordings!
