Brothers In Stereo - 2003

He ain’t heavy. A band of brothers re-group for new project.

Brothers in real life, Chris and Andrew formed Brothers In Stereo (B.I.S.). in 2001. A self-titled full-length CD was released in June 2003 and a video for the single "The Worst Crowd" followed. The band toured extensively and was nominated for two awards at the ECMA that year, also taking home The Rising Star award at Newfoundland's own Music Industry Association award gala in 2003, and were nominated for an EMCA again in 2004 and 2005.

In September 2005, B.I.S. got a surprise call one afternoon to open for Our Lady Peace that night in Mount Pearl (after k-os were a no-show). This concert turned out to be the biggest and best yet for B.I.S, with over 10,000 people in attendance. Lighters were burning for "Your Voice," and the crowd was singing along with the band on familiar radio songs. Chris said, "We had no time to worry about the size of the show, so we were really laid-back and able to enjoy it completely."

B.I.S. enjoyed a raft of attention over those 5 years from new fans south of the border who described the music as reminiscent of the Odds, classic Squeeze or Tom Petty. Brothers In Stereo mad power pop rich and textured with jangly layers of ringing guitar, warm vocals with wistful harmonies, and continued to thrive on writing/performing their own distinctive and magical brand of rock and roll, and triumphant, driven songs.

Then they took a break. Sort of.

Andrew LeDrew would release the solo project “Ladies Lookout” and Chris his solo project “A Stronger Man” and also form The 8 Track Favourites. Both brothers enjoyed critical success but longed to team up again with cousin Barry LeDrew on drums.

Brothers in Stereo launch their refurbished family sound in Spring 2011 with a sophomore project and a host of tour dates.
