The Brothers Burn Mountain are an intense, eclectic all original acoustic / electric guitar and drum duo that have been playing together for the past 6 Years.  The brothers have not only experienced life as a band but as family.

"The [Brothers Burn Mountain] are a duo of electric guitar and drums playing blues-infused music, like The Black Keys but different. Swirling harmonies are set atop fast rhythms, drums are synced up or pulled perfectly away from guitar riffs--it's tight but not stiff, locked but not robotic. Seeing them play is definitely a hypnotic treat.”

- Brad Nelson from The Duluth Brews Tribune, drummer of The Black-eyed Snakes and The Boomchucks.

Their music has been described at times as roots, bluesy rock folk americana style with sounds of Neil Young, Arcade Fire, Old Moody Blues, Led Zeppelin, John Denver, Big Hard Sun, and even Elvis.

The Brothers have been on the road full time for the last four years,  extensively touring throughout the midwest, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Nebraska and Colorado. In 2010 and 2011 they played nearly 200 shows. They submerge their lives in music 100%.

Finding The Band Name, The Brothers Burn Mountain:

In a diary entry dated May 23, 1895, Joseph MacDiarmad, a farmer, wrote of two brothers who wandered on a hilly country road near his land in Monches, Wisconsin. One of the brothers carried a guitar in its black case hanging from his shoulder with a rope. The other carried a small tom drum hanging similarly from his shoulder. MacDiarmad wrote: 

 “They call themselves The Brothers Burn Mountain, and seem to be unknown but to themselves, and I think they come from Wisconsin, but they have strange accents, almost Irish, almost Canadian, but mostly neither; and there's something about them that makes them look like goodly thieves, that wherever they go and whatever they do, they claim their lives back as their own, and they put that bounty into their sounds....”
