The Brother Brothers
The Brother Brothers
The Brother Brothers carry the folk tradition for a new generation. Identical twins David and Adam Moss honor contemporary aches with the nostalgic tenderness of another time on their debut full-length album, SOME PEOPLE I KNOW, out October 19, 2018 on Compass Records. Their stunning songcraft blends masterfully gentle guitar, cello and five-string fiddle with the sublime sort of two-part harmonies only brothers can carry. Their palpably fraternal stage presence and wonderfully familiar heart have earned repute among a modern folk scene; The Brother Brothers have opened for Big Thief, Lake Street Dive, Shakey Graves, and in the fall of 2019, embarked on a 26-date national tour supporting I'm With Her.

Recorded at Mark Ettinger’s Lethe Lounge in New York City with producer Robin Macmillan and engineer Jefferson Hamer, The Brother Brothers capably capture a modern snapshot of their surroundings. Yet, SOME PEOPLE I KNOW retains a timeless feel – something that the brothers were aiming for.

“I just want people to listen to it once and want to listen to it again,” David says of the album. “And every time they listen to it, I want them to find something new and in some way relate it to themselves. Whether they're listening to it today or in 40 years, I hope it will make them feel just the same.”

"Keep an eye out for the Brother Brothers, because they're most certainly what's coming up next". - PopMatters

“Wonderful… fabulous old-time playing and sibling harmony.” - NPR / Folk Alley

“Natural harmonies and evocative lyricism, reflecting a timeless sound and spirit.” - Relix

"a duo that pairs tasteful harmony vocals with two-person musical arrangements that weave together bluegrass and the darker side of folk.” - No Depression

“The closest thing you can find to Simon & Garfunkel in this century.” "The Brother Brothers deserve their own phylum upon an advanced musical strain not yet categorized on the roots music family tree. They are the true sound of roots music evolving. - Saving Country Music
Alan Rose
Alan Rose
Alan Rose is the songwriter over the twelve-string edge. Drawing from that corner of the musical world where rock, pop, country, and folk meet, his set shifts unpredictably from sensitive to funny, from mellow to high-energy, from power pop to waltz, at a moment’s notice. Alan is a prolific songwriter who has been making his mark on the Ithaca music scene since 1997. Prior to that, he spent a decade playing to crowds at colleges, open mics, and biker bars in the Philadelphia area.

In August 2010, Alan released his third CD, American Hands, after an eight-year hiatus from the recording studio. He spent the intervening years writing a collection of story-songs that highlight the American condition and building a seven-piece band to bring them to life. Alan is still just as tuneful and intelligent a songwriter as he was as a solo act, but the band kicks it up several notches.
