Like an unhinged jazz composer and his ragtime band on a mission to rework Vivaldi into a 90s pop song, The Lonely Brothers bring together warming strings and soulful harmonies into folky, unforgettable, fun music that takes you back to your favourite barefoot shenanigans. With a repertoire of heartfelt, mercurial songs which hop merrily within the margins of folk, jazz, classical, blues and contemporary roots, their music is a hymn to the unpredictability of the everyday.
The Lonely Brothers have been bouncing around WA of late, sharing the stage with the likes of Paul Kelly & The Stormwater Boys, The John Butler Trio, Carus & The True Believers, Paul Greene & Rob Hirst, Loren & The Grow Your Owns, Freya Hanly and Double Entendre. They've also played at Fairbridge Folk Festival, Nannup Music Festival, Perth International Arts Festival, West Coast Blues & Roots Fringe Festival and Albany's Harboursound Festival. Watch out for their debut EP 'Maybe You Can Remember' (2007).
