About The Guthrie Brothers
Jeb and Jock Guthrie, the GUTHRIE BROTHERS, knew the first time they played a Simon and Garfunkel song that they had a natural and almost spiritual connection to it. “Our voices blended effortlessly into that S & G signature sound, and the overwhelming audience reaction to our performance confirmed our feelings,” says Jock. “Since that first performance, we have worked to perfect our tribute to these two amazing artists.“
The brothers perform this tribute with startling authenticity in an “unplugged” acoustic style. The two have been singing together for as long as either one of them can remember-–a major reason for the perfect blend of their harmonies. Both Jock and Jeb play acoustic guitar and sing.
“The music that we play is truly an extension of who we are,” Jock says. “Our philosophy is to do songs that we feel directly connected to. We can trace these connections back to shared experiences and feelings from our childhood.”
“We think this is the reason we can be so faithful to the spirit and sound of whatever period or type of music we’re playing–including our own music. We play together as one,” Jeb says.
The Guthries’ original music received national attention with the release of their self-titled, debut album. The album garnered extensive airplay on both Americana and Country radio stations. About the album, Billboard Magazine said, “Many stations will find the well-written, heartfelt lyrics and wonderful harmonies a welcome addition to their airwaves.” The album was re-released last year and can be heard and purchased online at the iTunes Music Store and Rhapsody.
