Sister Crayon is a Sacramento-based indie rock duo.
Led by vocalist Terra Lopez with Dani Fernandez playing backing tracks, the band was a two member act for approximately one year before keys player Genaro Ulloa and drummer Nicholas Suhr joined the following year. Previously performing under the name Silent and Clemintine, Lopez decided "I didn't want to be shy anymore, and I wanted to have a name that was bolder, and a completely different alter ego."
In September 2010, they contributed a track to Manimal Vinyl's tribute to David Bowie titled We Were So Turned On: A Tribute to David Bowie, covering "The Bewlay Brothers". They also released a limited 7" split with Warpaint.
Sister Crayon recorded their full-length debut Bellow in Spring/Summer 2010 at the famous Hangar Studios in Sacramento, California. Five of the tracks appeared in a rawer form on their limited edition EP, only sold at shows. Bellow was released on Manimal Vinyl on February 22, 2011. Their debut video for the track "(In) Reverse" (directed by New York fashion photographer, Robert Ascroft) was aired several times on MTV's LOGO network in May 2010. They have toured the US and promise dates in the UK and Europe in 2012. In 2013 they toured the U.S. extensively in support of Bosnian Rainbows.
