Recently receiving two honorable mention awards in BILLBOARD'S World Song
competition THE APPLE BROS. have the songs and sounds to deliver.
Weened on everything from classic rock and Stax soul to outlaw country and The
Ramones, THE APPLE BROS' blend a Replacements-like alternative sound with an
Americana flavor and sentiment. Having recorded with some rock and blues greats
like Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers) and Sonny Landreth, they've
learned to craft emotional yet powerful songs driven by passion, and often times,
Born originally as a NYC duo James and Lou keep expanding their sound as well as their members. Recent additions of Joel Cannon on guitar and Ben Toro on bass, both from fellow New York band The Everyothers, have added a depth and tastefulness to their gritty, guitar driven songs. Their tunes run the gamut from the fist in your face, riff-ridden, rock anthem of "Beautiful World" to twanging, Birds-esque sounds of "Who Have I To Blame".
They have performed with acts such as The Zac Brown Band, Cat Power, The BottleRockets, Marah, Cheap Trick, Noel Redding, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Question Mark and The Mysterians, The Flying Neutrinos, and Junior Brown. Currently the brothers are collaborating with new members Joel and Ben on a fresh set of soon-to-be classics.
THE APPLE BROS. most recent release EXTENDED PLAY features "The Light's Still On" (H.M. Award winner in BILLBOARD'S 2008 World Song competition) and "Long Enough To Pretend" from the motion picture "CLIVE BARKER'S The Plague" Previous releases also available from THE APPLE BROS. are ON AN EMPTY STOMACH and NASHVILLE available on iTunes.
