"My Stupid Brother serves up a Slurpee-fueled, Green
Day/Ramones-ridden brand of diet punk filled with vocal harmonies,
sudden stops and tricky tempo shifts. The real clincher though, is the
song writing: hooks aplenty and precociously sly lyrics." - Good Times
Weekly of Santa Cruz CA

“My Stupid Brother never fails to entertain, with catchy rock songs,
wise-ass humor and tight, upbeat performances." -Your Music Magazine

Hailing from the tiny mountain town of Ben Lomond just outside of
Santa Cruz, CA, the members of MY STUPID BROTHER have been cutting
their rock star teeth since 2002, before their voices had even
changed. Since then, the pop-punk power trio has matured into a force
to be reckoned with. Charged by the friendly sibling rivalry of
brothers George and Henry Chadwick (ages 20 and 18, respectively),
along with drummer Jesse Wilkinson (age 18), MY STUPID BROTHER cuts
loose on stage, with high-energy, guitar-smashing rock shows that keep
audiences engaged and entertained. Their songs are catchy in the vein
of Green Day, Weezer, The Ramones, and Blink 182, but have an edge
with lyrics that evoke Kurt Cobain and John Lennon.

MY STUPID BROTHER has created a buzz within the Santa Cruz and San
Francisco Bay Area club scene as well as Los Angeles and Orange
County, where the band has turned the heads of top industry
professionals. MY STUPID BROTHER took first place out of over fifty
bands in the Your Music Magazine's 2009 “Your Music Olympicks” Battle
Of The Bands. They were voted the Best Band of Santa Cruz County.

Their second CD, What You Need, features guest producers
Greg Camp (guitarist/songwriter of Smash Mouth) and Tony Sales (bass
guitarist/backing vocals from Iggy Pop's Lust for Life and David
Bowie's Tin Machine.)
This band's drive and motivation is key to their success thus far. As
the sons of multi gold and platinum audio engineer and producer Daren
Chadwick, who worked with recording artists that include Paul
McCartney, Chicago, Motley Crüe and The Dead Kennedys, George
(guitar/vocals) and Henry (bass/lead vocals) were raised in a studio
environment, while prodigy drummer Jesse Wilkinson grew up in a
musical family and has literally been drumming since he could walk.
Both George and Henry acted as producers and engineers on the CD, What
You Need.

MY STUPID BROTHER has maintained a rigorous rehearsal schedule and is
stage-ready for shows of all sizes.
