The Southern Rock (blues infused) Atlanta based band consisting of guitarist-vocalist J.B Brisendine, bassist James Fedigan, keyboardist/organist Nick Johns and drummer JC Bartlebaugh, Is heading to Orlando with their (Original, but surprisingly Classsic) Rock collection.
We caught up with vocalist J.B Brisendine this past week on the history of ‘Brother Hawk’ to their new album.
How long did you work on this new album? In a sense, we’ve been working on it for the past five years, writing and perfecting these songs. But we tracked it all in about 4 days at The Quarry in Kennesaw, GA
Are the Lyrics an individual or collaborative effort? Individual. I write all the lyrics, except for “Big Medicine” which I wrote with my older brother way back in 2007.
In a music world with So many bands/artist what do you think makes ‘Brother Hawk’ stand apart from the rest? That’s hard for me to personally say, but the main thing is us. The music we create can only come from the four of us in a room together.
How would you describe your musical style? Raw and natural. We play whatever comes naturally to us, we try not to force or even over polish anything.
When did you first start working together in this group/band? 2010. James and I had been trying to get a band going for a few years, but Nick was a busy man and it took some convincing. Once we jammed together for the first time we knew we had something special.
Is there anything else you would like to tell our Orlando reader’s? That we love your city! We’ve never had a bad time there and can’t wait to come back!
