Music: The Bros. Landreth

The Bros Landreth

The love of music for Winnipeg roots band, The Bros. Landreth, began when brothers Joey and Dave Landreth attended their father’s gigs as children. They recently released their first album with band members Ariel Posen and Ryan Voth. Fun fact because I’m from Manitoba and I thought this was cool, their first album was recorded in a straw bale house in southern Manitoba, during one of the coldest winters. I think they are referring to the winter where it was colder here than on Mars…

In 2015 they won the Juno Award for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year – Group. The two most popular songs off of their 2015 album Let It Lie are title track “Let it Lie” and “I Am The Fool“. I say “roots” in the paragraph above only because I feel I have to but I can’t totally put my finger on what genre they are, but I think that’s what I like so much about their music, you get such a variety on one album. The song I am sharing is a sad one, it’s about letting go and I think it’s quite beautiful.

I’m sorry that I left so soon / I left you standing at the gallows / You were all strung out / The hangman waiting for the sign
