  • Biography In the words of Bruce Springsteen, “nothing feels better than blood on blood”. The Sumner Brothers know this in the most intimate of ways; they make music together. They are a partnership and they are friends, and they are a band. The trust shared between front-men Brian and Bob Sumner is a trust that is hard to come by. Their first release In The Garage, became an underground sensation charting in the top 10 for Folk/Roots/Blues on Canadian College Radio. With a fired-up fan-base and a sprawling tour schedule, the Sumner Brothers released their Self Titled Debut in 2008. Recorded on Galiano Island, surrounded by wildlife and fueled by BBQ and beer, the brothers created a true alt-country gem. The album placed in The Province Newspaper’s 2008 top ten list and Herohill.com’s top 20. In 2010. The brothers released a follow-up to their popular underground record In The Garage entitled In The Garage II - Your Last Chance. The collection of live cuts and impromptu collaborations was featured in Slowcoustic’s top Canadian records of 2010 and received 4.5 stars from Americanrootsuk.com. The brothers much anticipated sophmore release, 'I Love You, Smile' will soon have a confirmed release date.
