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.

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: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day.

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
