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.

"Nah nah," "la la" and "Wee oh" populated a number of songs from The Head and the Heart.
Yes, the Seattle-based band does pen a good amount of sing-along songs that were clearly designed that way. And while that style can certainly engage and energize a crowd, there was more to that from the sextet.... »»»
Concert Review: Underwood leads a night of women in country
Carrie Underwood may have been off the road for three years, during which time she had two boys and did not release an album until "Cry Pretty" 13 months ago, but the most successful American Idol contestant has lost none of her vocal luster to say the least in her Cry Pretty 360 Tour.
