Mark your calendars for Sunday, August 6th as national touring act The Brother Brothers, accompanied by local singer-songwriter Clayton Burke, are set to perform at Rose Bowl Tavern. This intimate concert, presented by RightHereMusic, aims to bring more touring singer-songwriters to stages in Champaign-Urbana, fostering a magical connection between the songwriter and the audience. Born and raised in Peoria, Illinois, The Brother Brothers is fronted by identical twins Adam and David Moss. Having spent their formative years in Brooklyn, the pair are well known for their storytelling through music and their unique sound, which has been influenced by their experiences and the places they’ve been. These down-to-earth individuals, known to spin a captivating tale, have been touring their album “Cover to Cover,” a compilation of influential covers, and are now gearing up to release their third original album, “The January Album.”

The Brother Brothers have been acclaimed for their performances and music, their warm harmonies and silky melodies often compared to the folk tunes that once filled the bars of 60’s-era Greenwich Village. Their music career includes not only international headlining but also collaborations with prominent artists like Keb Mo, I’m With Her, Big Thief, Lake Street Dive, and Shakey Graves. Beyond individual performances, the duo has graced various music festivals, including NPR’s Mountain Stage, Fresh Grass Festival, Folk Alliance, and more. As quoted by American Songwriter, “no matter what musical context Adam and David Moss may come to put themselves in, what the duo wants to say through music will always come to show the beauty that exists—even in the deepest cracks—of human living.”
