The Brother Brothers
The Brother Brothers
TWIN BROTHERS ADAM AND DAVID MOSS ARE A MUSICAL DUO UNLIKE MOST OTHERS.

THE BROTHER BROTHERS sound is striking and undeniably captivating. Often leaning towards the darker, moody elements of Appalachian, klezmer, and bluegrass traditions, their songs are laden with near perfect sibling harmonies or unison singing, compelling writing, and imaginative arrangements. They play as an acoustic duo: David on cello and guitar, and Adam on the 5-string fiddle.

"While they're technically a new band, The Brother Brothers have been in this together for life, and their familial connection comes through in the music, harkening back to some of the greatest family harmonies ever made. They approach their poignant and often charming songs with an almost startling sense of ease, and the tight harmonies are enough to send shivers down anyone's spine. Their ability to pull the listener into their quietly energetic musical journey is a joy to behold. I can't wait to be out on the road with Adam & David and hear their heart wrenching songs and spot on harmonies night after night!" -Sarah Jarosz

"They're the real deal. They know old-time two part harmony from the inside, and that fraternal resonance is there to be clearly heard." -Mark Simos (Allison Krauss, Del McCoury)


"If this album was a twizzler, I would bite off both ends and whistle along through the hole" -Bridget Kearney (Lake Street Dive)

Dietrich Strause’s songs are a mix of timeless melody, literate lyricism, and a "virtuosic command of imagery.” (The Artery, WBUR) In 2016 Strause released How Cruel That Hunger Binds produced by Zachariah Hickman (Ray LaMontage, Josh Ritter), the next benchmark in his steady evolution as one of the most eclectic writers and performers coming out of New England. This latest collection of songs is found somewhere in the shadows of the likes of Randy Newman, Nick Lowe, and Paul Simon. Since it's release, Strause has toured extensively throughout the UK sharing the stage with ​folk luminaries such as ​Sarah Jarosz, Darlingside, and Sara Watkins​. ​
