""Driven Back" review on Absolutepunk"

It can't be easy being the son of legends, be it living or dead. Just ask Jakob Dylan or Lisa Marie Presley. Though not nearly as titanic as Elvis or Dylan, the Bellamy Brothers are household names in the world of country music. Jesse and Noah, are the son of David Bellamy, who formed the now iconic group with his brother Howard. The younger Bellamy brothers started off their careers in Central Florida as members of the band Elston Gunn. After criss-crossing the country and Europe, the brothers finally settled in Nashville. Driven Back, their third LP is the result of their recent move to Music City.

On the whole disc is warm, engaging and shows hints of promise. Whether its the crunchy heartland rock of album opener "Weather Man," or the forlorn tenderness of "True Love Doesn't Beg," there's something promising and engaging about the material on Driven Back. "Lilly Vereen," is an affecting ballad that is poignant and timeless and draws on the contributions of a nyckelharp."Driven Back" is a gritty blues scorcher with ample amounts of guitar mettle and enough sass to knock Robert Cray on his ass. Vocalist Jesse Bellamy sounds his best on the slow-moving country ballad "You Could Have Had It All," and the languid "Bend in the Road," which is lingering and impassioned and arguably the disc's best song. Continuing with the country motif on "You Could Have Had It All" "The Homer Bellamy Centennial Blue Yodel," is a dusty, back-roads cut that is genial and warm. Equal parts biographical and whiskey-soaked, "Homer Bellamy" is also definitely Californian. The steamy sultriness of "Driven Back" is revisited in the blues-inflected "Florida Water" a personal paean to their home state of Florida.

Driven Back ends with the saturnine "Guilty of Myself" a pained portrait of self-defeat and arguably one of the disc's finest songs. The only negative to "Guilty of Myself" is that with a running time of less than three minutes, it is far too ephemeral and one wishes it would be a bit longer. On the whole, Driven Back is a fine effort from a band that now three albums into their career is finally putting the pieces together. Though its not the breakthrough juggernaut they need to catapult their careers, there are armfuls of promise here. But then again, that's not really a surprise. These boys have music in their DNA. - Absolutepunk


"Jesse and Noah Bellamy Join Twisted South Radio"

Jesse focuses on songwriting and singing. Noah engineers the songs and plays lead guitar.

Jesse and Noah eventually relocated to Nashville to develop their craft. After finding the 'Music Row' aesthetic to be restricting, the brothers made the decision to write and produce their own music. The result is “Driven Back,” an eclectic mix of Roots-Rock, Power-Pop, Country, and Americana. As accomplished multi-instrumentalists, they're responsible for the majority of the tracks on “Driven Back,” which was recorded completely in their home studio, just south of Music City.

Watching their father, David Bellamy (Bellamy Brothers), pen hit after hit, Jesse and Noah grew up with a musical heritage that they’ve chosen to embrace and expand upon. Just as other classic “brother” groups (The Louvin Brothers, The Everly Brothers, The Kinks, The Allman Bros. Band, The Bee Gees, etc), forged their own unique sound and identities, Jesse and Noah also are pushing musical boundaries to create their own path. - Twisted South


"Jesse & Noah Still Sailing High With Landfall"

“Waiting On An Echo” may have some big shoes to fill following “First Call After Last Call,” “Dirty With A Southern Drawl” and “Buried In Blue Jeans” from the same album but apparently that is not an issue because once again Jessie and Noah’s genius is at work in this clever video which uses elaborate and progressive illustrations of airwave signals bouncing off satellites to make their point. Even though what appears to be a lot of space junk floating in the background (while Jessie & Noah perform the song) seems to have very little to do with someone saying “I love You” then waiting for those words to be echoed back, you totally get it. A more predictable approach may have been a traditional mini soap with someone agonizing as they await a response. But Jesse and Noah are anything but predictible and the use of hardware and vintage clips to get the message across is both amazing and entertaining.

Highlighting the video and song are the incredible instrumental sequences, a distinguishing attribute of these powerful entertainers, and the soul of what makes this video work and “Waiting On An Echo” a top feature song from the Landfall album. - Neon Universe

"Review: Jesse And Noah "Landfall""

Country and rock mix together better than Jack Daniels and Coca-Cola on the completely self-produced album "Landfall" from country rockers Jesse And Noah.

Brothers Jesse and Noah Bellamy (yes, their dad, David, is one of those Bellamys) were born and bred on a ranch in the South that formed both their work ethic and their love of music. The brothers' craft was more firmly cemented when they converted a hay-barn into a music studio.

The album begins with the rock-infused "Tow Truck" and is followed by the charming country cut "Tryin' To Keep It Real." This song has the potential for radio chart success as does the grittier "Waiting On An Echo."

The song "Buried In Blue Jeans" penned by Jesse Bellamy screams for a new arrangement. With the right instrumentation and vocals, this cut could be a major country chart hit. An artist like Trace Adkins or Blake Shelton could take this song to Number One. However, the musical arrangement of "Crackerjack Heart" is simply perfect and fits the Bellamy boys "to a tee" as the idiom goes.

The title track "Landfall" is a song that offers elements reminiscent of a mixture of traditional and modern country. "Dirty With A Southern Drawl" offers the harder-edge instrumentation and vocal performance that would have benefited "Buried In Blue Jeans." However, Jesse And Noah are most successful on songs that illustrate their melodic brotherly harmony, such as "Sunny Weather With You." This is a radio-ready track that program directors should carefully examine. "Won't Give In" has much of the same charm and slowly builds to a powerful and moving chorus.

"Landfall" is a creative and wonderful representation of the hard work of two intellectually interested artists with considerable talent. Jesse And Noah may not know it yet, but their paring is musical gold when they mix their golden instruments as one. If they manage to warmly embrace this element, Jesse and Noah could easily become a chart-topping and potent musical force of nature. - CountryChart.com


"Tryin' To Keep It Real (Review of "Landfall" album)"

Three years ago when I first spoke to Jesse and Noah Bellamy they were burning up the Texas Country Music charts, on the strength of their third album, Nowhere Revisited, and it now looks like that was just a foretaste of what was to come. Landfall the new album from the Country duo will appeal to both classic Country Music and more contemporary Country Music fans. The album is not twangy, yet the themes are ones easily recognized in Country Music circles, as evidenced in the opening tune “Two Truck,” in which the lead vocalist (Jesse) sings a line as though it is sage wisdom from daddy, “There’s only three things you need to survive / A good woman, a tow truck and a colt 45.”

Jesse and Noah, as the brothers simply bill themselves write good songs and they also have the good sense to identify other good writers with whom to collaborate. Only two of the twelve songs on this album do not have the Bellamy name associated with them, and they serve as bookends to this terrific musical collection. “Tow Truck,” was written by Stephen Lewis Clark and Jimmy Lambert and the last song “Won’t Give In,” was created by Neil Mullane Finn and Brian Timothy Finn.

Listening to the easygoing, smooth vocals of Jesse Bellamy, as he harmonizes with Noah Bellamy, is in some ways reminiscent of another Bellamy duo, their father David and their uncle Howard, The Bellamy Brothers, whose song “Let Your Love Flow,” still resonates with music fans today. Jesse and Noah however are not two young pups merely relying on their father and uncle’s reputations to build their careers and one would hope that music fans would refrain from comparisons, because none are necessary, the new generation of Bellamy brothers are very good and deserve to stand in the spotlight by themselves. Noah Bellamy is very good on lead and rhythm guitars and those are only two of the instruments that he plays on Landfall. Noah bends a few notes on “Tow Truck,” and refrains from using special effects, because his playing is strong enough that he dazzles without them.

For those of us who have or need heroes, and I know I have mine; for those of us who are looking for genuine people, to whom pretense is a word they do not include in their vocabularies, the second song ‘Tryin’ To Keep It Real,” is the one that will hit home. A collaborative effort between Jesse Bellamy and Tim Schumacher, the song begins with Jesse singing, “I’m just trying to keep it real / Striving to be what I feel / While everybody is trying to learn the art of the deal / I’m just trying to keep it real / All my heroes had something to say / Some were made to pay / But they did things their way.” Besides the message, this song is a good dance tune and it had me wishing and hoping for a partner with whom I could sail around the dance floor.

As you listen to “Waiting On An Echo,” roll out, a song written by Jesse Bellamy and William Sherwood, you get the sense that you are listening to a band that is on the cusp of greatness. This is a song that talks about the risk you take, when you realize that you are in love and you say the words I love you, hoping that the other person is going to say those same words back to you. It is about the joy of putting it out there and saying this is how I feel, these are my “expectations and anticipation.” It is about holding your breath, reflected in the words, “Feels like my heart is suspended in air ….looking down, a long way to fall, I throw it out there baby, it’s your call.” These songs are not syrupy, they are not overdone and they are not fanciful. They are real words that describe real feelings, real emotions, real fears and real hopes. The inflection in the vocals suggests these are heartfelt.

The music slows down with the fourth song “Buried In Blue Jeans,” a song about granddad buried in blue jeans and sending him off the way he would have wanted it to be. It is about the desire someday to follow his lead, shun the three-piece suit and being buried in blue jeans.

The beautiful Texas waltz, “First Call After Last Call,” is a love song, for those who have been together for awhile and look at their husband, wife or significant other and say that they are your “first call after my last call, the only arms that I want to fall into every night, for the rest of my life.” If there are favorite wedding songs than “First Call After Last Call,” ought to be the favorite anniversary celebration song. C.J. Udeen’s steel guitar adds to the romantic mood and Luke Herbert’s gentle percussion compliments the vocals and guitars well. This is a song about respect. It is a song about recognizing that in good relationships it takes two people to make it work well, as told through the life of a part-time rocker, who goes straight home to the woman he loves, after he has performed his last song.

"Traditional Country Meets Classic Rock"

Jesse and Noah are brothers and in the three years that this writer has known them, they have surely and steadily turned more and more heads in country music circles, because of their knack for writing good songs and their splendid vocal harmonies. The sons of David Bellamy of the infamous Bellamy Brothers best noted for their number one single “Let Your Love Flow,” and “Spiders and Snakes,” a song penned by David and one which became a # 5 hit for Jim Stafford, have established themselves from the beginning based on their own talent. For their new album Landfall, Jesse served as the primary songwriter and at times it seems as though Noah plays every instrument ever invented by man. At the beginning of December Jesse and Noah Bellamy, who bill themselves simply as Jesse and Noah, sat down with me to talk about their album Landfall.

“I think our favorite stuff to listen to is traditional country and classic rock n roll and stuff like that. I think the stuff that we personally like the best is more in that vein and we listen to modern stuff, mainly to compete,” explains Jesse. “We like to do the traditional stuff and at the same time we want to stay current.”

“The stuff that we ended up with is what we feel (reflects) the best singing and it is what we like to sing and play. We really like the songwriting part of country and then we like the great rock albums of the sixties and the seventies and the things that you could play all the way through,” Noah adds, surmising that his guitar playing draws inspiration from those sources. “When I got more into producing, I started hearing guitar parts a little differently and the kinds of tricks that people would use on albums, like layering different guitars.”

Jesse and Noah grew up in Central Florida, have hit it big on the Texas music charts and they are now living in Nashville. Since arriving in Nashville Jesse hooked up with songwriter Tim Schumacher to write the title track “Landfall.”

“Tim is no longer living in Nashville, so we have not written together in a couple of years and some of the songs that I wrote with Tim and that are on the new album, are a little bit older. If I remember correctly, Tim had the title for that one and the idea was more about the daily grind of life. My girlfriend had recently lost her mother at that point and we were thinking about life and death. That first line “Traveling on a heartbeat,” just sort of came out and the song just wrote itself from there, really. It was actually pretty easy to write,” Jesse explains.

Jesse Bellamy and Tim Schumacher also collaborated on the song “Tryin’ To Keep It Real.” “(The song) “Trying To Keep It Real,” is about trying to keep up in Nashville and trying to write things that are commercial when you really do not want to think about if they are commercial or not and you just want to write the song. “Tryin’ To Keep It Real,” was one of three songs that we wrote that day. It is just about coming to Nashville and how tough it is to do what you feel. We go to a lot of meetings with labels and things like that and we have been told before, ‘You’re too good, maybe you need to dumb it down a little bit.’ After our first album, I went to meetings and they told me, ‘The problem is, you have written your third album fist.’ (He laughs) I don’t want to be put in that box,” says Jesse.

Noah weighs in on the competitive nature of the Nashville music scene and the state of the music industry, “It is pretty tough, especially now it is tough, because they are not sure what is going to happen with the music industry in the next few years. They are not sure about who is really going to be left. We have gotten to (the place) where we are pretty self sufficient. We are going to make music no matter what and we do not have to rely on the industry to create music. We can create music on our own. There are a lot of artists who aren’t like that and they are going to need producers and things. They really don’t know what is going to happen and everybody is trying to guess and to position themselves appropriately, but nobody knows for sure.”

Jesse and Noah realized one of the benefits of producing their own music, during the Christmas season of 2010, “We did a Christmas release “I Want Texas For Christmas,” for Texas radio and the song was written last week, we recorded it and it is on the radio this week. That has not happened in Nashville for a long time. I remember Danny Dill talking about writing “Long Black Veil,” (1959, co-written with Marijohn Wilkin) and it was like that. They wrote it in the morning, pitched it to Lefty Frizzell, they did the session the next day and it was on the radio the next week. That is a pretty amazing thing and I think that for a lot of it, the music is going to have to be able to keep up like that. We didn’t even plan to do a Christmas song and someone called and asked if we had one and we said, ‘Well we will work on it.’ That was pretty spontaneous,” says Jess - Riveting Riffs (Canada)


"Can I get a hell yeah for country duo Jesse and Noah Bellamy? HELL YEAH!"

Props to Jesse and Noah Bellamy for stickin’ it to the Contemporary Country MAN with their naughty new music video, “Dirty With a Southern Drawl.” The video features some lingerie-clad babes doing their part for the war, and man, what these sexy ladies will do for their country!

I stumbled upon this “risqué” video in my Music Row newsletter as a part of their “Video Roundup.” The vid is really no worse than what you would find in a Victoria’s Secret commercial -minus the ass-spanking, that is (oh my!). Since the release, it has appropriately made it’s way to the Top 5 Gone Wild: Country Countdown (not related to Girls Gone Wild, sorry boys) and is making a killing on the polls, ranking at #2 after it’s first week.

According to the article accompanied with the video, Jesse and Noah’s Nashville-based indie-label, Luna Chica Records, doesn’t expect to gain much attention from the likes of big wig traditionalists at CMT and GAC, however this doesn’t mean they’re not absolutely stoked for the new release. The chicks at Luna Chica Records, like COO Brenda Cline, are proud to have innovative risk-takers like Jesse and Noah and the creative originality of director Mike McCarthy representing the label, and they should be! As the video continues racking up viewers on YouTube, and now this page (hehe), this viral sensation is quickly becoming difficult to ignore and will certainly prove to be a risk worth taking. Much applause to all involved, oh, and hell yeah! - Indie Music Nashville

"Jesse and Noah: The New Bellamy Brothers"

Jesse and Noah Bellamy are making their Texas debut with a new record and a fresh sound. The two brothers are the sons of David Bellamy who is the younger brother of the famous country duo “The Bellamy Brothers.” Their debut project with Fort Worth based Smith Music Group titled Nowhere Revisited was released last month with promotion in the Texas market. The record was first released digitally last year and has already enjoyed some wide radio play for a couple of the tracks. The CD contains 14 songs and the brothers are currently conducting a radio tour promoting the current single called “Wild and Willin'." Additionally, early this month the brother’s did some shows with their famous Dad and Uncle in some select Texas venues.

Jesse and Noah are not exactly new to making their own music. The brothers are both in their late twenties and first started with a band called "Elston Gunn" in Florida in the 90s. The name was derived from the credits name that Bob Dylan used on records when he would record keyboard tracks for Bobby V.

The band even had a distribution deal for a record in 2001 but was not in a position to really tour and support the record. The band was more of a four-piece rock band as opposed to the roots based country and Americana sound they currently produce. The experience and skill with music is evident in the production of the current record that was completed with a minimal number of takes on the majority of the tracks.

The brothers self-produced the current project. They cut many of the arrangements in a home studio and would send them to their dad for a listen and advice, and then ensure the band was well versed on the songs before laying down the tracks. They used most of their current touring band as players on the record as well as some talented session players in Nashville. They also were conscience to avoid “over-producing” the project to keep it real and authentic. One listen to “Nowhere Revisited” is confirmation that they did a great job of attaining their goals.

The most reveling and refreshing thing about Jesse and Noah is their humble personality and nature. Even thought they don’t hide or deny their famous name they don’t emphasize it either. They most certainly have their own identity and sound that is refreshing, and their humble attitude is bound to translate well with Texas music fans.

Although the brothers spend their time between the family ranch near Tampa Florida and Fort Worth, they plan to tour and promote the new record almost exclusively in the Texas and Red Dirt music circuit. The current band is mostly located in the Fort Worth area and that is normally their Texas’ home base. They also spend time in Nashville to write songs and network but don’t really call the city home. Their dad and uncle never really called Nashville home either except for business purposes.

Jesse and Noah Bellamy are bound to turn some heads in Texas in the coming months and years as they earn their fans one at a time. They fit the scene so perfectly with a great country rock sound and songs that resonate with everyone that hears or sees them.

They are truly nice guys who are not taking their father’s fame for granted and simply using it to push their way to the top. When they get there, and they are going to get there, it will be the old-fashioned way with great songs, superb performances, hard work, and an appreciation of the fans of their music. The Texas music circuit is lucky to have this extremely talented duo traveling the back roads and by ways. Welcome to the next generation of the “Bellamy Brothers,” they are destined to be just as great as the first. For more information check out www.jesseandnoah.com.

Welcome to Texas guys. We hope you stay a long while!!! - Texas Music Times


"Jesse and Noah Make 'Landfall' in Bellamy Brothers Tradition"

With one listen to the engaging vocals and intriguing lyrics that distinguish the songs on their new album 'Landfall,' it's easy to see Jesse and Noah Bellamy have inherited the musical gifts that have propelled their father's career for more than 35 years. As two of David Bellamy's five sons, Jesse and Noah grew up under the tutelage of their dad and Uncle Howard, as the Bellamy Brothers have enjoyed one of country music's longest and most successful careers.

"I don't know if it was a conscious decision in any way," Jesse tells the Boot of the duo's decision to pursue a career in music. "We just started doing it and we kept doing it. I don't really feel like there was any decision ever made either one way or the other. It's just kind of what we naturally did."

"It was the only thing I was really any good at," adds Noah. "I was really bad at sports when I was a kid and better at music."

Once they began pursuing a career, settling on a name was a challenge, after all, "Bellamy Brothers" was already taken. "Somebody suggested the Bellamy Others," Noah says with a laugh.

'We went through some band names, but ultimately -- even when we were in a band with three other guys -- people would call us Jesse and Noah, so it was that.'

It's a crisp fall day and Jesse and Noah have welcomed The Boot into their Franklin, Tenn., home that boasts really cool retro décor and a state-of-the-art studio. "We tracked it here, we recorded it here and we mixed it here,' says Noah of 'Landfall,' their first release on Luna Chica Records, a Nashville-based indie label headed up by respected Music Row veteran Brenda Cline, who serves as Chief Operations Officer.

"We brought the album to them and they liked it," says Jesse. "We had the album done and already had plans to release the single. We were already moving with that and the Luna Chica deal came about, so we just continued with what we were doing. It's a small label and it's [operated] the same way that our dad has always ran his label."

Jesse and Noah grew up on the family's ranch in Darby, Fla., north of Tampa. "Everybody plays a little guitar and we all love music," Jesse says of siblings Noah, Cole, Dustin and Aaron. "All five of us are obsessed with music. I guess we were just kind of the oldest and started doing it first and the others just wanted to see if they could do something different."

Jesse and Noah hit the road early and began performing their unique brand of modern country in such prestigious venues as Tootsie's Orchid Lounge in Nashville, Billy Bob's in Fort Worth and New York's legendary rock club CBGB. The young siblings have also toured abroad, performing at festivals in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Wales, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

The duo have developed a particularly strong fan base in Texas. Two of the singles from their 2008 album 'Nowhere Revisited' -- 'Daddy's Got a Shotgun' and 'Wild and Willin'' -- hit the Top 20 on the Texas Music Charts, and the brothers tour extensively in the Lone Star state. "Texas people like music to dance to and I think our music lends itself to people dancing," Noah says.

The brothers' new single, 'First Call After Last Call,' is generating strong buzz from Texas to Tennessee. "We thought it would do really well in Texas and knew that we had a pretty good following there," Jesse says. "It just seems like a Texas song. We really thought of it as kind of an 'Urban Cowboy'-era throwback, like retro country music. So Texas was kind of the obvious place to start because of the foothold we had there."

During a recent album-release party at the Luna Chica offices, Jesse and Noah performed songs from 'Landfall' and also debuted their new video for the tune 'Dirty With a Southern Drawl,' an innovative clip that combines a World War II theme with playful images of pin-up girls doing their part to aid the war effort.

The songs on 'Landfall' definitely showcase Jesse and Noah's versatility. "The heart of it is country," Noah says in describing their sound. "There are a lot of other influences. The songs on the album are all pretty different from each other. There are a wide variety. Most of them aren't like anything else. There is everything from 'First Call,' which is traditional sounding to stuff that's kind of out there. There should be something for every one."

When playing 'First Call' a Nashville DJ mistakenly announced the song as the new release from the Bellamy Brothers. Though they are definitely out to make a name for themselves, Jesse and Noah no longer bristle at comparisons to their dad and Uncle Howard.

"I think we used to shy away from it a little or used to try to do a little more rock stuff just to get away from it," Jesse admits. "But you get to a point where you just accept it and really realize that it's not a bad thing at all." - The Boot (AOL)


"Jesse and Noah Make 'Landfall' in Bellamy Brothers Tradition"

With one listen to the engaging vocals and intriguing lyrics that distinguish the songs on their new album 'Landfall,' it's easy to see Jesse and Noah Bellamy have inherited the musical gifts that have propelled their father's career for more than 35 years. As two of David Bellamy's five sons, Jesse and Noah grew up under the tutelage of their dad and Uncle Howard, as the Bellamy Brothers have enjoyed one of country music's longest and most successful careers.

"I don't know if it was a conscious decision in any way," Jesse tells the Boot of the duo's decision to pursue a career in music. "We just started doing it and we kept doing it. I don't really feel like there was any decision ever made either one way or the other. It's just kind of what we naturally did."

"It was the only thing I was really any good at," adds Noah. "I was really bad at sports when I was a kid and better at music."

Once they began pursuing a career, settling on a name was a challenge, after all, "Bellamy Brothers" was already taken. "Somebody suggested the Bellamy Others," Noah says with a laugh.

"Video Roundup: Grascals, Jesse and Noah, Adam Craig Band"

Jesse and Noah Bellamy’s single “Dirty With A Southern Drawl” has been shipped to Texas radio this week by Luna Chica Records, and it is accompanied by a controversial video. Shot in Memphis by director Mike McCarthy, the video incorporates elements of comic book style and WWII iconography to tell the story of a woman’s plan to stop the war through striptease. “Even though this video may raise a few eyebrows along Music Row and will most-likely not be embraced by CMT and GAC, we all feel it maintained the artistic integrity which it was meant to have,” says Brenda Cline, general manager and director of A&R for Luna Chica Records. “We think that viewers are tired of the same old cookie cutter videos. I say ‘bravo’ to Mike McCarthy, and Jesse and Noah’s creative risk taking. As far as the song is concerned, it’s as country radio as it gets and it’s great!” - Music Row Magazine

Bio

Great art is defined by connection. There's a bond – almost like family – working musicians share with fans all over the world. 

That emotional intimacy has made history out of some of the greatest siblings in song. A product of one of country's greatest duos, Jesse and Noah Bellamy follow in this grand tradition made famous by such greats as the Louvin Brothers, and continued by their father and uncle through the Bellamy Brothers prolific career.

As the fourth generation of musicians in their family, Jesse and Noah's shared upbringing saw as much time inside the tour bus and recording studio as it did with their grandparents on the ranch. This exposed them to popular WWII-era tunes and the classic age of country music, which later led to interests in the blues, jazz, sixties rock, and other euphonic influences.

It was early on that the boys decided that they would further the family name through their own careers. Years of practicing, writing, and recording led to a return to roots for the duo, and independent releases helped forge just the right sound. Jesse and Noah are nomadic in style and form, and channel the spirits of the land into an atlas of audioscapes. This was conceived through a broad palette, an engineer's knowledge of music, and the dependability only family can offer.

Jesse and Noah sought to push their artistic limits. Driven Back, their third record, saw the band finally finding its own voice with a mix of roots-rock, power-pop, and Americana into something familiar and fresh. Their latest project, Brethren, explores the importance of sibling harmony through a covers EP that honors the works of Merle Haggard, The BeeGees, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, The Everly Brothers, and The Seldom Scene.

“Our goals here are pretty simple,” says Jesse Bellamy. “We want to honor the musical tradition of the brother act by taking it back from the “bro country” perception. There's this great heritage that many people aren't going to appreciate until we show them the importance of that connection. With our latest album, we're showing the relevance of the old while bridging it to something new that we hope audiences will enjoy.”
