“I've heard the future of rock n roll and it's name is THE APPLE BROS.” David Huijzer, http://altcountrynl.blogspot.com/.
Recently receiving two honorable mention awards in BILLBOARD'S World Song competition THE APPLE BROS. have the songs and sounds to deliver. With their new release "Be Strong" they mix simple and rich tones into a modern classic with an instrumental outro that harkens back to the early sonics of rock 'n roll with dreamy guitar solos draped over a hypnotic rhythm section.
Weened on everything from classic rock & Stax soul to outlaw country & The Ramones, THE APPLE BROS’ combine thoughtful songwriting with an Americana flavor. Having recorded with some rock & blues greats like Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers), Pete Levin (Blind Boy of AL) & Sonny Landreth, they’ve learned to craft emotional yet powerful songs driven by passion, and often times, desperation.
Born originally as a NYC duo James & Lou (the brothers) keep expanding their sound as well as their members. Recent additions have added a depth & tastefulness to their gritty, guitar driven songs. Their contributors have included The Rev. Vince Anderson, Pete Levin (Blind Boys of AL), Danny Nordhal and Clarence Rivette to name a few. Their tunes run the gamut from the fist in your face, riff-ridden, rock anthem of “Beautiful World” to the twanging, Birds-esque sounds of “Who Have I To Blame.”
They've supported such acts as The Zac Brown Band, Cheap Trick, Junior Brown, Cat Power, The BottleRockets, Marah, Noel Redding, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, The Flying Nuetrinos, and Question Marc.
