Jude Brothers is an Arkansas forged and New Mexico molded folksy leaning singer songwriter with a penchant for whimsy and tender heartedness.
Brothers’ distinct writing style is marked by congenial contrasts: passionate & playful, calculated & relaxed, approachable & quirky.
Their lyrics communicate a simultaneous existential dread and intoxicating thrill of living and loving, a practice in raw and shameless vulnerability shared through song. All of this is transmitted through nimble vocal frolicking- a shapeshifter voice crawling, leaping, pirouetting over a landscape of various string instruments.
“Alternating between banjo, harp, and guitar, Brothers’ emotive performance recalled the likes of Gillian Welch, Joanna Newsom and Karen Dalton.”
-Jonny Leather, Mecca Lecca
“-a powerful songwriting force conveying emotive lyricism, freak-folk stylings and sick-ass harp.”
-Alex De Vore, Santa Fe Reporter
Their debut solo album '& the Concrete Dragonfly', released in 2017 under the moniker 'ppoacher ppoacher', is available on bandcamp.
In Spring 2023, they will finally be releasing another;
‘render tender/blunder sunder’.
“It’s a long overdue painting of a painting of a painting of a heartbreak, a mimicry of a mimicry of all the things left unsaid, all splayed out, ready to be heard and healed. So don’t fret, it ain’t really all that sad.” -jb
