About the EP:
This debut release embodies the intricate musicality, odd-ball instrumentation, and tight vocal harmonies that have become a staple of Cousin Earth's live act. The genre-bending album will take listeners through the many sides of Cousin Earth presenting originals with a multitude of styles including Bluegrass, Hip Hop, Rock, Fusion, Ragtime, and Funk. While the band is known for making big sounds with tiny instruments, this EP will also showcase several songs reminiscent of Mercury Landing, the Progressive Jam band that brought these musicians together (featuring guitars, horns, etc.) Tracks w/ guitar and bass guitar are "Think of All the Things," "Point of No Return," and "Your Alibi." All other tracks feature ukulele and ukulele bass.

Cousin Earth (formerly known as Ukulelien) is a Brooklyn-based Ukulele rock band. With both an original repertoire and a vast array of covers, Cousin Earth brings both a sense of playfulness and technical ability to the music they play. From shredding ukulele solos and 4–part vocal breakdowns to interweaving themed medleys, the band is sure to catch the attention of any music lover. Presenting a multitude of genres, no musical style is off-limits for this up and coming live-act. NYSMusic.com said, "Cousin Earth gets my recommendation for Band You Absolutely Need To Experience."

In a short time, Cousin Earth has earned many achievements including 3 CMJ performances, 170,000+ YouTube views, 1200+ YouTube subscribers, 1700+ Facebook likes, and positive reviews from numerous publications. They've opened for Melvin Seals and the Jerry Garcia Band, they've won an opening slot at the RocknRoll Resort festival, and they booked their own charity tour affiliated with the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life.” Their musical collaborations include performances with Consider the Source, Andy Frasco, Primate Fiasco, and Teddy Midnight. Cousin Earth has also received public recognition by Andy McKee, whose original song “Drifting” was covered by Cousin Earth. “Drifting” remains the most popular YouTube video with over 47,000 views, and it is continuously climbing.

Cousin Earth may not be as loud or as physically large, but they will definitely surprise audiences by finding uncharted musical territory with their tiny instruments, CE can't help but make you smile and sing along.
