The Bros. Landreth sign to Slate Creek

Thursday, June 19, 2014 – Canadian band The Bros. Landreth signed to Slate Creek Records, it was announced today.

The Bros. Landreth will release its debut album, "Let it Lie" this fall. The disc was recorded throughout the winter in Manitoba with the guidance of producer Murray Pulver (Doc Walker, Tara Oram, Crash Test Dummies) on Slate Creek Records this fall.

"As songwriters and musicians, these guys have earned their comparisons to the Eagles and John Mayer, and I knew we had to find a way to support what they were doing in the studio and on the road. Joey, Dave, Ryan and Alex are just in their 20s, but their musicianship and storytelling is beyond their years," said Jim Burnett, Slate Creek's CEO.

Born into a musical family, Joey and David Landreth took to music at a young age. Joey played guitar before he could speak, and Dave experimented with every instrument in the house before settling on his dad's old Fender P-Bass.

The group also incudes Ryan "Rhino" Voth on drums and Alex Campbell on piano and harmonica. All are from southern Manitoba province. "We're at the epicenter of this great artistic hub, smack dab in the middle of the coldest place in the known universe," Dave joked.

Brandy Clark and Angaleena Presley of Pistol Annies also are on the label.

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Rising Appalachia buck the mainsteam, and that's fine with them – Rising Appalachia would not be accused of being in the musical mainstream. Not too many bands who combine folk and Appalachian sounds with new world music could possibly be. And that suits the sister-led duo of Chloe Smith and Leah Song just fine. In fact, at one point, Chloe made it clear she did not embrace radio play as a sign of success... »»»
Concert Review: Bingham plays with something to prove – Ryan Bingham mainly focused on songs from his sixth album "American Love Song," for this lively show. Backed by a supportive band that also included two female backup singers and a fiddler, Bingham's eclectic setlist touched upon country, singer/songwriter folk, rock and blues. Bingham reached for lively country sounds early on, with... »»»
