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.”
