Tonight’s season 7 summer premiere of Freeform’s Pretty Little Liars will feature a track off of alt. pop band My Brothers And I’s debut full-length, Don’t Dream Alone (Expunged Records). The band also recently released a five-song live digital EP, recorded at Portland, Oregon’s Mississippi Studios, entitled Live At Mississippi Studios. The live EP features five songs, including three off of Don’t Dream Alone (including “Nowhere To Run”), a cover of Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine,” and a new song, “Tell Me,” which the band has been performing live recently.
Chosen by Amazon as “The Next Big Thing” via their The Next Program, My Brothers And I’s Don’t Dream Alone has helped establish the band as one of the West Coast’s premiere alt. pop bands. Comprised of brothers David (lead vocals), Erik (bass/vocals), and Scott Wurgler (drums), as well as childhood friends Jordan Roach (guitar) and Johnny Iliyn (keys/vocals), the quintet brings a wide range of influences to their music, creating sounds that are melodic, soulful, and danceable throughout the eleven-track collection of warm vocal harmonies, luscious grooves, and undeniable hooks.
“You can always expect our songs to sound like they do on the album,” says bassist Erik Wurgler on My Brothers And I’s live show, when discussing Live At Mississippi Studios. “We take pride in our live performance. If you’ve fallen in love with our album, you won’t be disappointed when you hear the songs live. You’ll just get to experience them in a new way. We’ll spice something up here or there but David’s voice really is that good, no studio tricks made that voice!”
“Tell Me,” the new song on Live At Mississippi Studios, is one of the first songs the band ever wrote together.
“It’s got an interesting story behind it,” comments Erik. “It’s one of the first songs we ever wrote, but it’s gone through three total face lifts with the style in which we play it. So, even if you think you’ve heard it before, you haven’t heard it like this.”
