“The Abrams Brothers are way too young to be playing that good” – Arlo Guthrie
“The Abrams certainly know how to build a song…it’s in [their] blood, natural, to just get in front of people and play…just brilliant! – Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2, London UK”
“Released last year, their major-label debut is a self-titled EP that features a down-to-earth blend of fiddle, acoustic guitar, banjo and sweet brotherly harmonies. At the same time, it gets a big rhythmic boost with elements of pop and rock. The first single, Fine, is an irresistible nugget with a pure pop chorus, while the second, Champion, has the backbone of an arena-rock anthem anchoring a poignant story about everyday heroes.” – Ottawa Citizen
“Each of the six tracks on their debut EP truly demonstrates and defines their musical roots blended with the sound of their generation. This blend makes for the perfect car drive with the windows open and the sun beaming down.” – Lithium Magazine
It’s hard for John and James Abrams to recall a time in their young lives where they weren’t creating and playing music together. As fourth-generation musicians, the Abrams have already taken the “family business” to a whole new level with their recent signing with Warner Music, and the release of their debut self-titled album under a major label. Still only in their mid-twenties, they have been taking their distinct Americana/Country sound on worldwide tours for over sixteen years, and have been featured on major United States networks like CMT, NBC, FOX, and NPR. Additionally, the Abrams are among the youngest performers to ever play the world-famous Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. Last year, their debut single, “Fine,” charted in the Top 40 on Country Radio.
With deep family roots in Bluegrass and Gospel music, their live performances feature a virtuosic blend of new original songs produced by Grammy Award-nominated producer Gavin Brown (Three Days Grace, Lady Gaga/The Midway State, The Tragically Hip). Performances also feature their own versions of classic Americana and Country songs that have influenced their sound over the years. You will certainly find yourself entertained by this world-class act that Arlo Guthrie calls “way too young to be playing that good”.
