Artist Biography by

Brainiacs Daughter is an electro-rock band from sunny Florida. Members are vocalist and keyboardist Kristy "Kjo" Jo Haima, guitarist Christopher Skogen, bassist Eric Glinsboeckel, and drummer Eric "Hugh" Parravani. The group's music mixes pop and techno, and, at times, powerful guitar riffs, into something that has been compared to works by Liz Phair, Portishead, and Offspring.

"Give Myself to You," "Feel It Inside," "Fever," and "Talk It Over" are some of the nine tracks on Brainiacs Daughter's 1998 debut release, Behave. In 1999, one of the numbers, "Love Be Love," from Behave, was featured on the film soundtrack for Olive Juice. Some other artists on the soundtrack are Average Joe and the Backstreet Boys. Music by Brainiacs Daughter has also been used on shows like Disney's Z-Games and MTV's popular series Road Rules.

In 2000, the band was supposedly planning tours and getting ready to release a sophomore album, Versificator. On November ninth of that year, surprising most fans, the band simply put a notice up on the Brainiacs Daughter's official site that said, "this is the end." The group members had called it quits.
