This year GMBR had hoped to present The Brother Brothers but, due to scheduling conflicts, the band had to back out of the show. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring them to town and offer a preview of what GMBR is all about. Come out to hear the band that was the “most requested” by all the other bands playing GMBR and you’ll begin to understand the spirit of collaboration and pure musicianship that infuses this music scene.
The Brother Brothers are Adam and David Moss, identical twins carrying on the folk tradition for a new generation. Using minimal instrumentation, heartfelt lyricism, and harmonies so natural they seem to blend into one beautiful voice, the siblings draw on the energy and creativity of Brooklyn, New York for their full-length debut album, Some People I Know.
The Brother Brothers’ acoustic project emerges from several years spent traveling the country, both separately and together, playing in varying ensembles and sometimes settling in separate cities. Though each writes his fair share of the discography independently, the brothers’ palpable fraternal bond produces a togetherness in these songs that few bands can offer.
