“The next generation of Americana heroes.” Uncut Magazine

“Scruffy and scratched Americana that recalls Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark and early Springsteen.” Time Out London

“Right now my favorite drinking buddy is The Felice Brothers. It’s music best described by my friend: It’s three in the morning, sleepy drunk, secretly holding the hand of the one you love.” The Guardian UK

“The Felice Brother’s Catskills Folk is rough around the edges and intoxicating…..Ryan Adams: eat your heart out.” Metroland/Best Of 2007

“Tonight At The Arizona documents the reality of happy endings not being one of life’s guarantees.” Drowned In Sound Magazine

“The Felice Brothers write epic songs with lofty titles and they wield a massive accordion. All that is reason enough to give them a day in court.” Vice Magazine

“The best new music I’ve heard all year.” Jimmy Buff/Radio Woodstock

“Great…that song about the boxer is a classic.” Vin Scelsa

“Backwoods Americana is all the rage, but this band of brothers is a cut above the rest.” 4 Stars The Sun UK

Fresh off their coast-to-coast US headlining tour, the Felice Brothers hook up with Bright Eyes for a November East Coast run. But the boys didn’t spend the summer touring just the states, they WOW-ed ‘em across the pond warming stages for the Waterboys, David Gray and Blanche.

The Felice Brothers travel the world performing homegrown and gritty Americana on city stages as if they were hosting a sing-along on their front porch in the rolling hills of their native Catskill, NY. All are invited to the hootenanny. The sound that emerges from their instruments seeps with authenticity that’s rooted in the tradition of dusty bar rooms. Music that feels like a stolen bottle of red wine shared with friends, and a woozy summer night filled with the promise of love, danger, barbecue and fireworks, all rolled into one.

The Felice Brothers continue to support their internationally acclaimed Loose Records release “Tonight at the Arizona” on US soil. Fans will be able to grab hold of a limited number of their exclusive “tour only” album “Adventures of the Felice Bros Vol.1.”

Dirtbags capturing lightning and spinning it into harvest gold. That’s how the Felice Bros consider themselves. “Dirtbags” because the Felice Brothers (three of them – Ian, Simone and James – brothers of blood, with dice-throwing bassist Christmas adopted in as blood brother) are the type of guys who, no matter how much you wire-brush scrub them, will never clean up entirely. They’re a bunch of slouching Hudson River pirates who’s penchant for panhandling and busking in subways and sidewalks bring backwoods charm to everyone person they touch.
