The Brother Brothers
The Brother Brothers
Their sound is striking and undeniably captivating. Often leaning towards the darker, moody elements of Appalachian folk, and bluegrass traditions, their songs are laden with near perfect sibling harmonies or unison singing, compelling writing, and imaginative arrangements. They tour as an acoustic duo: David on cello and guitar, and Adam on the 5-string fiddle. With individual storied music careers under their belts, the brothers have finally teamed up to bring their experiences together.

They Released their EP Tugboats in January 2017 and are planning to release their follow up full length album in early 2018.

“The Brother Brothers have been in this together for life, and their familial connection comes through in the music, harkening back to some of the greatest family harmonies ever made. They approach their poignant and often charming songs with an almost startling sense of ease, and the tight harmonies are enough to send shivers down anyone’s spine. Their ability to pull the listener into their quietly energetic musical journey is a joy to behold. I can’t wait to be out on the road with Adam & David and hear their heart wrenching songs and spot on harmonies night after night!” -Sarah Jarosz

"They're the real deal. They know old-time two part harmony from the inside, and that fraternal resonance is there to be clearly heard." -Mark Simos (Allison Krauss, Del McCoury)



Adam Moss
Brooklyn based fiddler and songster Adam Moss’ musical career can most easily be characterized by the variance of his influence. Adam loves and plays in the Klezmer, Bluegrass, Old-time and swing traditions which lends itself to a very unique and innovative style in performance setting. He is actively touring with Boston’s Session Americana, Brooklyns The Defibulators, Ana Egge, and has formerly toured with Anais Mitchell’s “Hadestown,” and Texas’ 3 Redneck Tenors.



David Moss
“When David Moss sings you his songs he rips your heart out, throws it on the ground and stomps on it, then picks it up and gently places it back in your chest...then he punches you.”
— The Lula Wiles (2015)
Originally from Peoria, IL, David Moss began his musical journey playing cello and singing in various formats from a very young age. After receiving a degree in cello performance from the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign), he moved to Austin, TX in 2007 where he immediately formed with the trio The Blue Hit. There, David attended the Kerrville Folk Festival, and before long was playing guitar and writing songs. By the summer 2011 he was a finalist in the prestigious New Folk competition and went on to become a winner.

On his album "Bag of Bones" which was released in 2010, David has a gruff voice as a result of a Granuloma on his vocal chords. In November 2012, however he underwent surgery and has rejoined with his old and original vocal timbre. He is currently living in Brooklyn, NY and performing his songs in various formats with his twin brother Adam Moss and continuing his cello career playing and composing with The Blue Hit as well as groups such as the Satellite Ballet, Moishe Circus, The Broken Stares, Ana Egge, Roy Williams and The Human Hands and many others.
