The BROTHER Story

Chances are you’ve seen BROTHER on NBC’s ‘ER’, maybe heard their music on the classic ‘Baraka’ soundtrack or UPN’s ‘ Twilight Zone.’ The band has shared stages with Joe Walsh, John Entwhistle, Linkin Park, and Alicia Keys and are the only independent band to have played the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. 

Fusing signature vocals and guitar with the deep pulse of the didgeridoo, the soaring highs of the bagpipes, and tribal percussion, BROTHER is wholly original. The band’s powerhouse live performances are an energetic celebration, captivating and engaging the audience from the first song to the last. 

Angus, founding member of BROTHER, arrived in Los Angeles from Australia with his brothers a decade ago as little more than fresh-faced farm boys. In LA, they found themselves busking at Venice Beach, the Hollywood Bowl and Universal Studios to survive. Since those days, BROTHER evolved its trademark sound while touring extensively in the United States and in Canada, Japan, France, Egypt and Australia. 

They did it all free from standard industry trends and pigeon-holes. BROTHER has self-released 12 albums, sold more CDs in the USA than any other independent Australian act and has regularly been cited as a role model within the independent scene. 

 

Brother Angus

Visiting Scotland with the band every Spring for the last six years on the wildly successful BRONACH tours, Angus discovered his Celtic heritage in a way he'd never imagined. Finding a fascinating connection between his own wanderings and the Celtic myths and histories, Angus has created a captivating show like no other.

 Emerging from recent hibernation, founding brother Angus is reimagining the BROTHER sound with his Alaskan mate Alec “Aka” Dickinson. Hypnotic tribal rhythms emanate from Angus’ loop station, interwoven with guitar and his signature bagpipes. Over it all, Angus' soaring vocals and storytelling transport audiences to another world. Alec's soulful lap steel brings much loved songs to life in a whole new way and his harmonies evoke the original vocal blend of Angus' brothers.

Says Angus: “Aka and I have been raising our kids together here in the southern Oregon mountains. That experience and the sensibilities of our native countries – both huge, exciting frontier lands – inspire our music making in a unique and profound way. We're excited to see where this journey leads us.”

... Incarnations of BROTHER can be found in many a place, including NBC'S 'ER', UPN's 'Twilight Zone' and the classic Baraka soundtrack.
