Band of Lovers, Brother Grand

Band of Lovers:
“It’s a golden road trip,” Kate Bee wrote of the debut album from Band of Lovers. Her words also reflect the band’s lifestyle- born on the road in the fall of 2013 and living and touring full-time in their self-converted 1997 Dodge van, the music they write strongly reflects their way of life.
“Few songs are sweeter than ‘Tennessee’…” says Christian Carvajal of the single off of the band’s full-length independent release ‘the Coast’ (Feb. 2015). The album has sold over two-thousand copies and debuted on local and public radio stations around the country, including NPR affiliates HPPR, KUWR, KXCI, and WRUR.
With a modern take on folk sound and pop structure, their songs draw inspiration from the stories and landscapes of North America. They’re currently touring and preparing for the release of their upcoming sophomore album, recorded in Woodstock, NY and due for release in March 2017.
California based Brother Grand blends Psychedelic-Folk Rock with a twist of Film-score Soul. With an emphasis on engaging live performances, Brother Grand pushes the limits without breaking the ties. Not just a mere duo, Brother Grand expounds their message through the use of live looping, a rhodes piano, chaotic string textures, thunderous drumming, and heartfelt vocal harmonies. Whether stripped down to acoustic guitar & upright bass, or surfing an electric wall of sound, Brother Grand always delivers with passion, honesty and presence.
