From the barrios of Bilbao to the Windy City (of Chicago), this power trio emerges with a rocking unusual force that only those who have been playing rock music since early teenage hood can exhibit. Its name takes after Gov’t Mule’s famous song ‘Broke down on the Brazos’ with the purpose to capture the flavor of southern rock. The band is led by William Gutierrez, a powerful vocalist and a virtuous guitar player who has not only put this band together, but has also set an example of “a band that plays well together”. Txemi Gándara at the bass guitar and Alberto Chamorro, Koki at the drums do an impeccable job on the rhythm section in which every beat finds its place.
Los Brazos have pleasantly been surprising American college students doing their study abroad stay in Bilbao, where they did not expect to find a band that could render classic rock (especially American rock) in such a genuine way. Indeed, Los Brazos’ live performances are something to write home about. Relevantly, they are primarily a bar band. Even though they have played in a number of well-known rock clubs and open shows for big bands in Spain, it is on the wooden stages of rock bars where they feel like home. They can throw gigs like an American band and play three shows in one weekend since gigging comes as second nature to them.
Los Brazos were born in 2012 from a series of jam sessions in which its members met coincidentally. They soon came up with a musical project which took off like a rocket. The concept behind was to show the audiences where they come from and where they want to go with their music. Hence, they released their first album “Delay, 10 Classic Tracks” in December 2012. The CD is a tribute of 10 covers to their classic influences in blues and rock music that range from “Big Joe” Williams to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
On summer 2013 Los Brazos visited the US, touring around the midwest through 4 states and 7 venues in 10 days. That was the very beginning of a tour to introduce their second album: “Welcome to Los Brazos”, 9 original songs going from classic rock to blues or country music that still receives rave reviews and took their music to the local, national and then global radios and TV.
At the time Los Brazos are still touring, and also preparing a documentary to talk about their experiences on the road. Not satisfied with this, the band has a third album in the owen that will be released in 2015.
Who said rock and roll was dead? Definitely not, as long as bands like Los Brazos keep on gigging.
See ya guys at the next show!
