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: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones – Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time. That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
Concert Review: Fogerty lives up to his past – Woodstock 50 may never have happened, but that original monumental event was certainly in the air at John Fogerty's My 50 Year Trip Tour before, during and after. The before and after was in the choice of songs that came over the speakers including everything from Jefferson Airplane's "Don't You Want Somebody to Love" to The... »»»

Chip Kinman celebrates brother, career on "Sounds Like Music" For a brief moment last summer, the news of Tony Kinman's death was, if not greatly exaggerated, then at least fortuitously premature. The roots rock icon, known for his work in The Dils, Rank and File, Blackbird and Cowboy Nation with his younger brother Chip, had been diagnosed with cancer in March 2018,... »»»
