If you’re familiar with bluegrass music, then you’re tuned in to some of what Greensky Bluegrass does. They’re also known to throw a great party, rock n roll, and (if the critics are to be believed) they have great songs. They are unquestionably a team of friends that traverse the country making music they enjoy. What makes Greensky different than Bluegrass? Poignant rural ballads about real people? Dobro tone that Jerry (Douglas or Garcia) would love? Distortion Pedals? Grit and attitude from a whiskey soaked card game? Indeed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
The Cerny Brothers:
The Cerny Brothers have been playing music together since they were just young bucks, coming up together in a rural Illinois town. While the music itself has taken on different forms over the years, it has always had one simple and cellular foundation in which it is firmly based: brotherhood. That's right; there are no gimmicks or posturing to be found here. Their kinship is legitimate. It's one that has stood up against the test of time, carrying them from their adolescent and early adult years in the Midwest, to their long journey west to their current base, Los Angeles.
After initially performing as a duo, the brothers were honored to welcome drummer Cody Fontes and upright bassist Gabe Davis to the family. In 2012 the band worked nonstop, playing over sixty shows, embarking on two tours, and returning home to Illinois to record a Daytrotter Session. The band couldn’t be more excited for what lies ahead in 2013, especially the release of their new album.
Recorded in the small farming community of Ojai, CA, The Cerny Brothers teamed-up with producer Matt Linesch (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros hit record "Here") for their second album. On their sophomore effort, The Cerny Brothers embraced a more stripped down and exciting sound that not only reintroduces them as a band, but captures the striking energy that can be found at any Cerny Brothers live show. It's raw, it's driving, and it finds it's home in truths that are unique to each and every listener.
The Cerny Brothers play music that inspires a sincere and genuine connection between them and their fans – a connection that is unique, timeless, and simply cannot be ignored.
"One minute you're pulled into a frenzy that makes you want to jam out and stomp your feet, then you're thrown back into a whimsical reflective state. This band delivers great energy, style and sincerity." -ReallySF Blog
