The Brother Brothers

The Brother Brothers belong to a tradition of sibling harmony outfits that stretches far beyond the Everly Brothers, a chief influence on the duo of Adam and David Moss. Where most brotherly acts feature members born a few years apart, Adam and David are twins, a hook that as notable as their soft-focus harmony-laden pop, which draws equally from Americana and first-generation rock & roll. It's a sound reminiscent of such contemporary as the Cactus Blossoms, though the Brother Brothers lean toward the gentler side of this spectrum, as their early full-length albums, Some People I Know (2018) and Calla Lily (2021), prove. The Mosses stretch further into the roots with Cover to Cover, a 2022 collection of songs from other artists. Originally from Peoria, Illinois, the Moss brothers began their musical journey as string players, with Adam playing fiddle and David on cello. After receiving his cello performance degree at University of Illinois, David ended up in Austin, Texas, where he played in a band called the Blue Hit, learned to play the guitar, and started playing and recording his own solo material. Meanwhile, Adam continued to explore a wide range of fiddle traditions from klezmer to bluegrass and swing, playing in East Coast bands like Session Americana and the Defibulators. While the two brothers had a lifetime of musical history playing together, it wasn't until they were both based in Brooklyn that they undertook a proper duo project. Singing in close harmony with a minimalist setup, their work as the Brother Brothers incorporated bits of Appalachian, traditional folk, and bluegrass music with their own original songs and approach. After self-releasing their 2017 Tugboats EP, they signed with Compass Records and made their full-length debut with 2018's Some People I Know. A pair of stand-alone singles, "Siren Song" and "Summer Rain," appeared in 2019 as the brothers readied their follow-up album. Expanding on their hushed, warm tones, the Brother Brothers issued their sophomore album, Calla Lily, in 2021. The Brother Brothers recorded songs from Tom T. Hall, Richard Thompson, Judee Sill, James Taylor and Jackson Browne on Cover to Cover, a 2022 salute to their musical heroes.
