Brothers N Arms is not just a band. It is a system of thought, an experience, a journey. At the beginning an idea, along the way awesome people, places, and relationships, and at the end….who knows?
BNA is Jesse James on the bass guitar, Hoss on the drums, and Daniel Vines on guitar and vocals. The trio is based in the central Texas cities of Bryan/College Station and Austin and performs across the state.
The music is hard hitting drums and loud guitars, carefully choreographed chaos, and vocals that aim to show a better way. Each member of the BNA team brings their own perspective that has been formed in the fire of trial and triumph. Jesse lays down bass lines that are as powerful as his hulk-like presence would suggest, Hoss pounds the drums with the force that matches the intensity of the engines that power the souped-up cars and motorcycles he prefers, and Vines bends the guitar with intensity as he brings to the front the message of hope and reality that is the reason for BNA.
The guys are looking to visit a town near you soon, so stay tuned for the latest information on upcoming appearances.

Earlier this year the band released a 3-song EP themselves entitled The Good Fight. These guys put together a typical straight-ahead rock sound with mild hooks that are easy on the ears. A quick listen to the lyrics will make it obvious to anyone with an IQ above 50 that the lead vocalist, Daniel Vines, is singing about something he is passionate about. All songs contain strong Christian lyrics that don’t sound like your average praise chorus or hymn, but still contain a message.
My pick for top track between these three songs would have to be the third, entitled “His Words.” A little less “straight-ahead” than the other two, this selection incorporates several different riffs making the song appear a little more technical and have a bit more energy. The guitar solo also evokes plenty of energy and emotion as well.
As stated above, lead vocals are handled by Daniel Vines, who also takes care of all of the guitar work. Jesse James lays down the bass lines with a warm, fat tone. And drums are held together by Joey Vines. These three guys deliver a no-frills performance on basic “rock” songs. To be more specific, I would classify this as a straight-ahead Strat-type rock with a slight bluesy influence played with a metal flair. So how’s that for all-encompassing? Personally, I think it’s sad in this day and age that “rock” is no longer an adequate genre. But if you really wanna make “straight-ahead Strat-type rock with a slight bluesy influence played with a metal flair” a new genre, be my guest. I said it first though…

It was a great night of Home Brewed ROCK in general, awesome show. Brothers N Arms had a great set, very cool dudes....I look forward to seeing them again. Dimitri's Rail was spot on too. Musically, not a weak point in the entire night.
Good friends all around, it was 5 bucks on a Saturday. If you missed it....you either had a very serious prior obligation or your drool bib got knotted behind your head and confused you the entire evening.
No excuses people, support these cool things that go on in YOUR town.

I love 90's alternative/grunge/rock and this puts a little of all of that including a little punk all rolled into one. Plus the music puts out a great message. It has been a long while since I have herd a few songs be so powerful. Thanks Brothers -N- Arms for this great 3 song album.
Love me a power trio!

The single "His Words" is really good, but I actually like the scathing rebuke of abortion in "Breathe" better! "It's your choice! It's your right! It's your body! But it's my life!". All 3 songs RAWK. Only download if you wanna RAWK.

The band members all have chops on their instruments, but they don't hide their very clear message behind fast guitar riffs. The message is front & center. I love the choppy opening to "Breathe", as well as the dabbling in screamo between melodic lines. I actually like the kind of "bare-bones" production as well.

It’s an experience that falls right into line with the saying, “Never judge a book by its cover.” Better yet, “Never judge a gift by its size.” While reviewing “Brothers N Arms” press kit materials, I began listening to “The High Road”. With their band photograph still on the forefront, of my mind, the first verse kicks in. The vocals received were totally unexpected as was their simultaneous release of a sound so powerful. In short, “Brothers N Arms” is a Talented Trio Rock Band that not only sounds “more powerful” than what most people visualize, when they hear the "word" Trio, they also have a Unique Story of how they formed as a group. Some may think, “What are the odds?” I think what a blessing”
