The Talbott Brothers have earned a large and growing following for their songs consisting of down-to-earth messages that prove to be prevalent in today’s world. Originally from Imperial, Nebraska, they now call Portland, Oregon home. Billboard defines their music as “captivating with haunting brotherly harmonies.” Acoustic Selections from Ghost Talker is an EP of stripped down songs hand selected from Ghost Talker, the duo’s sophomore album. Rolling Stone named their latest single one of the ‘Top 10 Songs to Hear Now,’ defining their music as “cinematic folk-rock for open highways, widescreen skies and the limitless reach of the American Heartland.” Blood harmonies and sibling rivalry are evident in their songwriting with lyrics pulling from the trials of everyday life and the questions we all face. “Everyone has ghosts, whether they talk about them or not. We wanted to take off the mask and be honest with this record, hoping that what we needed to say is what people needed to hear.”
Brograss: With their feet firmly planted in rootsy, mountain bluegrass, this young brother band from a small Pacific Northwest island brings a new energy to the form with their fast-picking style and brotherly harmonies.
Still in their teens, Tashi and Kaj Litch have already “blown the roof off” Seattle’s Benaroya Hall with Brandi Carlile and Mike McCready, and entertained standing – room-only crowds at venues around the Northwest.
Playing and learning with world-class musicians since they were knee-high to their instruments, the brothers have shared the stage with Brandi Carlile, Balsam Range, Darol Anger, Doyle Lawson, Sierra Hull and many others.
The birth and rise of Brograss was the subject of the award-winning film “It Takes an Island,” which was featured at the 2018 Seattle International Film Festival, and in 2015, Tashi and Kaj performed a TEDx Talk on the power of music in rural communities.
Brograss brings their mix of traditional and original bluegrass as a duo with guitar, mandolin, fiddle and voice, and also performs as a quartet adding upright bass and fiddle.
