Homegrown Folked-Up Countrified Rocknrolled Roots Music, served up sibling style
The Meadows Brothers’ distinct brand of roots music combines folk, blues, country and rock ‘n’ roll into what the Boston Globe calls “An engagingly twangy sibling sound all their own.” Ian and Dustin Meadows are the Meadows Brothers. They share that essential brother-band DNA: a telepathic tightness, the ability to stop and start vocal phrases in lockstep, to fall effortlessly into close harmonies, trade off phrases and navigate together the fresh expression of American roots music they create. Their 2017 release, “TRUTH”, demonstrates the brothers’ keen ability to get to the heart of the matter with simple melodies, blood harmonies, unsweetened songwriting, expressive guitars and blues tinged harp.
“Blending folk and country with a blues edge, the brothers Meadows pack a powerful punch for being just two dudes armed with only a couple acoustic guitars and a harmonica. But their harmonies are the type of stuff only siblings can usually muster and their songs smack of souls much older than their earthly years would let on” – Chip McCabe, LONESOME NOISE
