Criss-crossing the country for the past four years from the East Coast to the Rockies, this acoustic trio uses mandolin, guitar, upright bass, and vocal harmonies to captivate audiences with their crafty songwriting, fiery improvisation, and soulful delivery. The band’s versatility spans the range from rootsy folk to gypsy swing to bluegrass and blues, and makes them equally at home whether performing in an intimate club or on a large festival stage.
The Vine Brothers’ first two albums, 2012’s Low Rent and 2013’s The Devil and the Deep Black Sky received considerable airplay on over 100 stations in the US and Canada and charted in six cities. One of the songs from Low Rent, “Three Bottles,” was featured on the Discovery Channel show Vegas Rat Rods.
Recently, the band was a semi-finalist in the Belk Southern Musician Showcase in Nashville, TN and the song “East of Albuquerque” was chosen as a finalist in the 2016 International Songwriting Competition (ISC). The Vine Brothers’ third album No Candy was released in July 2016 and has been nominated for Americana Album of the Year by The International Music and Entertainment Association’s 4th Annual IMEA Awards.
“One of the best and most innovative bluegrass-Americana bands in the U.S. They arguably hold the mantle of Americana music.”
-Phil Westcott, Triple Cities Carousel, Binghamton, NY
“Django meets Tom Waits chauffeured by a gypsy bandwagon.”
-Torin Andersen, F5 Paper, Wichita, KS
“Bright and buttery… flamboyant with a touch of oak… Kick-ass but not too tart.”
