The Howlin’ Brothers – roots based and genre bending Readymade Recording artists – perform in Goshen tonight at Ignition Music with special guests Wilson’s Reservoir. The Brothers will no doubt be performing many songs from their brand new studio album, “Trouble.” Tickets are $20 for this all ages event. Wilson’s Reservoir begins at 7:30pm, Howlin’ Brothers go on afterwards.
The Howlin’ Brothers had a very good year in 2013, following the release of Howl, their first nationally and internationally released album.
Howl, featuring Warren Haynes on “Big Time,” brought instant success to the band. In one year they graced the cover of Acoustic Guitar magazine’s January 2014 issue, recorded in the legendary Sun Studio, were featured in a national PBS show (The Sun Sessions, which will broadcast throughout 2014 in more than 100 markets), shared the stage with Grammy winner Ricky Skaggs, placed on over 17 end-of-year “best of” lists, and reached number 6 on the Americana Music radio chart.
The trio toured their brand of “old-time string country blues with an indie-rock edge” throughout the U.S. and into Canada. The majority of the 13 original songs that comprise Trouble, released April 29, 2014, were influenced by the people they met and struggles they encountered on the road over the past year.
Trouble was produced and engineered by indie rocker Brendan Benson of The Raconteurs and solo career fame. It will be released on CD and digitally April 29 via Benson’s independent label Readymade Records (in the U.S.), and distributed by Thirty Tigers/RED.
