BROTHER & Bones, the band with Cornwall at its heart, play the Princess Pavilion in Falmouth on Saturday, March 1, as part of a UK headline tour.
These are five men that write songs with the artistry of folk troubadours, the energy of punks, the swagger of rock stars and the self-belief of stadium headliners. A quintet so versatile that they can switch from soul-searching laments to chest-beating triumph with the flick of a wrist and the blink of a steely eye.
The recorded aspect of Brother & Bones is impressive enough as the band have developed a sound that takes in aspects of folk, indie, rock, blues, jazz, funk and soul as will moments of pure tribal rhythms and chanting.
But it’s in the live arena that this beast truly comes to life with their already legendary stage shows having seen them slay venues from small bars to festivals taking in a support tour with Brit Award winner Ben Howard along the way.
Brother & Bones, led by St Ives' Rich Thomas, are not a band that create a barrier between themselves and the audience, for these guys the audience is the show.
The band play with passion, determination, poise and with only one goal in mind; to entertain. Musicians end up in the crowd, the crowd storm the stage and before the end of the night they are one pulsing, throbbing mass of elation and belief in the deity of music.
With growing media interest in the band (including a recent live session on BBC Radio 2’s Dermot O’Leary show) Brother & Bones are on the way to achieving legendary status and they are doing it the right way. The only decision you have to make is whether you get on board now or wait to be swept along in their wake.
