“…soulful harmonies as golden and warm as the late-evening sun.” - Jen Zoratti

"James Brown"

Eagles 2.0 - Sound guy at The Cavern Club (No, not THAT Cavern Club, and certainly not THAT James Brown)

"Bruce Ladan"

Put Govt. Mule and Little Feat in a blender, add 2 shots of Patron, and a splash of good ol' leaded gas an' you got some Bros. Landreth. - CBC

"Murray Pulver - Guitar God and Producer Extraordinaire (Doc Walker, Crash Test Dummies, Tara Oram)"

I don't care what anybody says, these guys are alright. - Quote

"Julien Desaulniers - Artistic Producer Festival du Voyageur"

The Bros. Landreth are a compelling package. Undeniable musicianship, slick harmonies, and an ear for beautiful melodies were what initially attracted me to their music. Their sincere approach to songwriting and their knack for story telling are what have kept me listening. However, what draws me in the most is their rare ability to turn melancholy into something beautiful and filled with hope. - Quote


Let it Lie - Released 09/03/13



After spending the last decade supporting some of Canadas most talented artists from Doc Walker to Imaginary Cities and developing a reputation across Canada and various parts of the world for their exceptional musicianship, Joey and David Landreth have at long last taken the plunge into a project that is uniquely their own, The Bros. Landreth.

Born to a musical family, both sons took to the craft early and quickly. Joey played the guitar before he could speak and Dave experimented with every instrument in the house before eventually settling comfortably on his Dads old Fender P-Bass. Their father, much respected songwriter and side-man, Wally Landreth, was an institution in his own right in the Winnipeg music scene where the boys were raised and began to pay their own dues. Wally toured the continent as a musician and developed a wealth of experience that he would pass on to his two young sons. Almost prophetically, in his early teenage years, Joey followed in his fathers footsteps as a working freelance musician. He was touring across the country and playing nightclubs while he was still finishing high school. In no time Joey quickly amassed a star-studded resum. He has since toured and recorded with One More Girl, The Wyrd Sisters, Dallas Smith, Deric Ruttan, Steve Bell, and most recently with Juno and CCMA winners, Doc Walker. Meanwhile, his older brother Dave took a similar approach and set to work developing a reputation for his simple and solid bass playing. Hes extensively toured North America, Europe, and Australia with such Canadian talent as Romi Mayes, Chris Carmichael, and indie-pop group, Imaginary Cities. To complete the band The Bros. have called on drummer and long-time musical cohort: Ryan Rhino Voth (Del Barber, Fred Penner, The New Lightweights). A child-hood friend, hes grown up playing and working with both Landreths, together and separate, in an innumerable combination of musical outings.

All three hail from the sprawling southern Manitoba prairies and they are fiercely proud to call Winnipeg home. Were at the epicenter of this great artistic hub, smack dab in the middle of the coldest place in the known universe. Dave playfully exaggerates. We have to write and play just to stay warm half the year... It becomes a creative incubator a survival technique. The end product of these exercises in self-preservation are The Bros. Landreths songs. They are alt-country road maps that are sometimes auto-biographical hinting at the fallout of a life as a touring musician, and occasionally fictional exploring melancholy themes of love gone bad and love gone worse. They leave the esoteric behind in favor of delivering their stories simply and never letting their road-proven musicality stand in the way of the songs speaking for themselves. The result; an undeniable vulnerability in the plain spoken narratives, songs that weave a heart on your sleeve tale of finding your way through love and heart-ache.

Their debut album, Let it Lie, was recorded through the dead of winter in Southern Manitoba with the guidance of friend and producer Murray Pulver (Doc Walker, Tara Oram, Crash Test Dummies). Their studio time happened to land them directly in the middle of the coldest week in January with the temperature hovering below -30 C. The heat in the loaned van died on the trip out to the country and they had to borrow a heat gun to defrost a pie shaped circle in the windshield. The warmth of the tracks, however, belie the bitter cold they survived in order to capture the sounds that would eventually turn into their first album.

The Bros. Landreth will be out on the road in 2013, investing their own blood and sweat in support of their first release.
