Brothers in Farms | Band rehearsal

The Brothers in Farms are Sunshine Coast based band that I followed to a rehearsal and a small show. They have a silent and loyal local following, but like the magical secret named the Glass Teepee – their secret rehearsal space tucked away neatly on a wooded property – they don’t seem to be intent on fame. Ironically, it’s probably the best reason to fall in love with them beyond the music.

’bout the bros

The story of The Brothers begins around a crackling fire in the infamous glass teepee, where a small group of musicians and friends would gather and play; the “brothers in farms” they called themselves back then… Aided by musical influences ranging from the Gypsy kings to Panamanian calypso-reggae, with a dash of Beruit and Sufjan Stevens, The Brothers stumbled upon a sound and style that would act as the foundation of their music in the years to come.
