Biography

This here's a story about two dashingly happy and young minded musical fellas from different parts of the same town in Northwestern Ohio. It turns out that they musically collided into one another creating a very unique and refreshing new take on roots oriented blues music whereas many elements of their musical inspiration poured out like water from a vessel. Influences came from so many different sources that it became a bit overwhelming and humbling to say the least. Eventually a personal sound developed on it's own becoming a testament to their dedication to the pure musical artists that graced their ears over the years. Taking what they got from the past and forging ahead with the inspiration to create something out of their simple acoustic minded future, these guys can literally play their tails off, to say the least. Being the only "two man quartet" within a 500 mile radius makes them a sight to behold. Where other bands imitate, "Lucky Brother" stirs up the musical soup bowl and leaves you with a feeling that, at times, is hard to describe. Playing every musical moment like it's the last song they will play on earth, these guys have more heart and soul than a whole Amish community together on a picnic outing. Once they croon, howl, slap, pluck, stomp and toot their way into your hearts you will never be the same again.
