The indie rock band Rainer Maria was formed in 1995 in Madison, WI. They're known for their poetic lyrics and resounding metaphors. The trio consisted of Caithlin De Marrais (vocals/bass), Kyle Fischer (vocals/guitars) and William Kuehn (drums). The lineup didn't change during their eleven-year career. The three recorded a 6 track demo tape, and then their first EP, Rainer Maria in 1996, followed by their first studio album Past Worn Searching in 97. Two years later, they released Look Now, Look Again, followed by A Better Version of Me in 2001.
