Feeling a bit camera shy


Former members of the band Pee Shy, guitarist/accordionist Cindy Wheeler, and bassist Mary Guidera, with new drummer Kristin Mueller together are The Caulfield Sisters.
Pee Shy spent 4 years and 2 albums on Mercury Records. Extensive touring, critical acclaim, many weeks over the years as a favorite on the CMJ charts never equaled selling millions of records. Pee Shy and Mercury Records eventually parted ways, shortly there after Pee Shy disbanded. Cindy and Mary formed The Caulfield Sisters in the winter of 2001.
Still present in The Caulfield Sisters are Pee Shy’s signature harmonies but they are a bit more subdued. Ten years of collaboration between Cindy and Mary find The Caulfield Sisters musically more sophisticated and sonically grander. At last they have the firm grip on melancholy’s throat that Pee Shy always reached for. Mary’s solid melodic bass lines and haunting backing vocals, are the perfect cradle for Cindy’s airy vocals, reverb drenched guitar and the occasional beauty that is her trademark, accordion feedback. Think “My Bloody Valentine” the melody behind the noise. The Caulfield Sisters songs will lull you like a Vicodin dream and then inject you with moments of pure pop to keep you upright. Lyrically dark and disturbing this lovely puffy cloud can block out the sun and promises rain.

The Caulfield Sisters were featured recently in TIME OUT NEW YORK as one NYC’s “10 Bands To Watch”.
They were also featured on KEXP from Seattle’s, recent LIVE broadcast from the Museum of Television and Radio in NYC.
If you are familiar with J.D. Salinger’s novel “The Catcher in the Rye” understand this, The Caulfield Sisters are the musical metaphor of Phoebe, little sister of Salinger’s anti-hero Holden Caulfield; Holden’s Phoebe, the little sister as savior, a glimmer of hope in a blue coat, a sonic swirl, a beautiful blur that keeps whirling past you on the Merry-go-round.
