Wailin’ Wednesday: Brand New Song by The Bros. Landreth

Wailin’ Wednesday: Brand New Song by The Bros. Landreth

The Bros. Landreth have had a good year. After playing the Winnipeg Folk Fest Main Stage for the first time – on opening night, no less – they blew the audience away. That audience included the one and only Bonnie Raitt.

The brothers of The Bros. Landreth were raised on Bonnie Raitt’s records, so imagine the band’s shock when, post-Folk Fest, she said, “I haven’t liked a band as much as The Bros. Landreth in a long time. To hear this kind of funky, Southern-style rock played with such originality and soul will knock you out.”

Their showcases at the Americana Music Fest earned them a feature in Rolling Stone’s article “20 Best Things We Saw at Americana Music Fest 2014.” They came home from Nashville with a record deal with Slate Creek Records and a plan to release their debut record Let It Lie – an album we’ve been enjoying here in Canada for months – in the U.S. in January.

We had the chance to hear a brand new song that they played for us in their kitchen and we thought we’d share it with you! Watch the Winnipeg Folk Festival session featuring “Made Up Mind” by The Bros. Landreth.
