Brothers and Sons
Transatlantic blues & roots project featuring Mark Cole (Sons of The Delta - UK) and Mike and Stevie Myers (Myers Brothers Band - Canada). Recorded at the Juke Joint Chapel at the Shackup Inn in Clarksdale , Mississippi in April 2016 and additional parts recorded at MCLR in Gloucester, UK and MMOB in Ottawa, Canada.
The Myers Bros and Mark met back in April 2005 at the Juke Joint Festival in Clarksdale, Mississippi, and since then they have performed together many times in Mississippi, Canada and the UK. They have made guest appearances on each other's albums - Mark on the Myers Brothers Band album ‘Drive’ in 2011 and Mike ‘Mossman’ Myers on the Sons of the Delta album ‘Tasty Nuggets’ in 2014.
This new ongoing collaborative project will bring you fresh new music from the collective hearts and minds of Mark Cole, Mike ‘Mossman’ Myers and Stevie Myers. The aim is record the foundation parts of fresh tracks live in the studio whenever and wherever they meet up, take the tracks home to the UK and Canada and then continue to record additional parts. Modern technology allows the guys to communicate and worth together, sending parts to each other to add to the mix where they can work independently while checking back with each other as required to create the finished songs. The favourites of each session will be released as digital EPs, building an ongoing collection.
The first collection of songs from Brothers and Sons, appropriately named 'Volume I', was released at the end of January 2017. Visit the Store page for details.
