The Brooklyns / Bio

“The Brooklyns may be named after a beer, which in turn is named after a borough….But they are more like a state of mind!” – The Noise Music New England

The Brooklyns, a 5-piece rock band based in Boston, MA, have just released their third CD “Sideways Town.” With the strong influences of classic rock mixed with sounds of country rock running through the grooves, this 12 song collection proves that passion, attitude, and solid songwriting make a great album. From the grit of “Boones Farm," to the heartfelt "Heart Alone,” the band delivers top-notch songwriting and performance from beginning to end.

Founding members and songwriting team, Maureen “Mo” Kavanaugh and Tom Leger (Sweet Cheater, Black Number Nine, The Fighting Cocks) originally formed The Brooklyns in 2005 as a singer/songwriter combo playing and writing “songs about life” with a passion and fire not often heard from an acoustic duo. Wanting to realize their sound as a full band, they recorded their debut CD “The Brooklyns” in 2008, with the single “Richer” now garnering airplay on both commercial and local radio in MA & NH.

In 2009, Jeff Murray (bass), Sean Murray (guitar), both cousins and formerly of Jake and The Jakes, and Rob “Reebo” Tibbs (drums), formerly of Bishop Strike, joined the band, and The Brooklyns “family” was complete. Adding their musical talents to the songwriting team of Kavanaugh/Leger, the band has achieved a sound, paramount in each of their original songs, while paying homage to their love for classic rock, with influences ranging from The Rolling Stones, to Patti Smith, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Tom Petty, to name a few. “It’s like putting on a new pair of jeans and they fit like you’ve been wearing them forever,” says Mo. “It’s only natural for Tom & me to write this way…”

Their new CD, “Sideways Town" is now available on iTunes worldwide, as well as Zune, EMusic, Spotify, Amazon mp3, Google Play, and Rhapsody. The band loves playing live, engaging audiences in numerous venues throughout the New England area. They always dig hanging out with their favorite DJs on the radio, and are now also spending time in the studio writing songs for their 4th CD.
