About the girls..

The sundrenched songs of Australia’s indie pop sibling trio Germein Sisters are making waves globally with their debut single “Da Da Doo” entering the Top 100 Mainstream Radio charts in Germany, and their highly anticipated show at the Isle of Wight Festival UK (feat. Fleetwood Mac & Pharrell Williams) in 2015.
 
Georgia (guitar, keys), Ella (electric cello, bass), and Clara (drums) formed the band in 2012 after spending their childhood jamming together on their family’s bushland property in the Adelaide Hills. Following the girls’ first show as a three piece in their South Australian hometown, it was clear that there was something magical about the trio’s sound. Passionate songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Georgia, together with classically trained sister Ella on electric cello and bass, and self taught drummer Clara blended perfectly with their inseparable sibling harmonies that can only be generated by members of the same family. The intangible closeness of the band and quality of their live show immediately sparked attention within the public eye; leading to their mother Sue, a Community Health Nurse, stepping up to the role as band manager. It wasn’t long before they attracted the attention of Irish producer Billy Farrell, who had worked with chart topping band The Corrs. Together with the assistance of Jealoustown Studios’ Stuart Gray, the girls released their debut album “Because You Breathe”, which entered the Top 100 Album Sales Charts in Switzerland, and single “Da Da Doo” in the Top 100 Mainstream Radio Charts in Germany.
 
Securing a Top 5 nomination for Best Pop Artist, Best Band, and Best Song “Da Da Doo” in the Fowlers Live Music Awards; and First Prize in the prestigious Tamworth Country Music Festival Busking Competition (non-country section) 2014, it was clear that the Germein Sisters’ career would continue to escalate. In 2015 the girls performed on the Coopers Green prior to Sting and Paul Simon in Adelaide, and gave an unforgettable performance at the Isle of Wight Festival UK, and in Germany at the Women of the World Festival, The Steiger Awards, and Friedrichshof Palace for the Prince of Hessen. They also released a song collaboration with Swiss artists for their entry into the competition to represent Switzerland in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016. Germein Sisters have toured Australia, New Zealand, China, Germany, Switzerland, Ireland, London, and Toronto. Compared to the likes of The Corrs, Haim, and Coldplay by popular music critics - their irresistible charm and positive spirit is infectious to their growing fan base.
 
The girls are kind hearted and generous spirits, being keen surfers and lovers of animals. Germein Sisters are also Ambassadors for World Vision Australia with a social conscious unique to individuals at such a young age. Lead vocalist and songwriter Georgia Germein is a carer orphaned kangaroo joeys through Fauna Rescue SA, and is known for her extensive charity work for disadvantaged communities in South Africa and Nepal. Georgia’s songwriting awards include a finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (NY), semifinalist in the International Songwriting Competition (TN), winner of seven ASME Young Composers Awards, finalist in the Australian Songwriting Competition, and National Winner of the Red Cross Radio Competition (Nova). Her song “Take My Hand” was selected for the South Australian Tourism Commission’s International Marketing Campaign.
 
Their debut album ‘Because You Breathe’ is now available worldwide and in stores on iTunes.
