about the brothers:
Brother Oliver is a South Carolina-based musical project formed by two brothers, Andrew & Stephen Oliver. The brothers deliver high-energy performances through the lens of a folk-rock / psych-rock aesthetic—a genre they've officially coined as "psychedelic folk-rock." The band's explorative approach to music strikes a chord with any audience and has rapidly gained recognition in the Southeast and abroad.
The project was started in 2011 in the small town of Greenville, Michigan — where the brothers were born and raised. Just two years later, they moved to Greenville, South Carolina as a result of 20-year-old angst and longings for change. Upon arrival, Andrew (the eldest of the two) opened a small recording studio where they would write and record their first record, Stubborn Fool, in 2013. The band is currently preparing to release their self-titled full-length record, Brother Oliver, which will be available on August 25th, 2017.
"Their music is wildly expressive and mood-driven, but rocks you at the same time."
"Brother Oliver naturally embodies that sort of Old Soul intrigue and perspective."
"Whether their music and lyrics are straightforward or a bit enigmatic, Brother Oliver wants to be able to reach listeners in a personal way."
- Leena Dbouk, Spartanburg Herald Journal
"[Brother Oliver] showcases both their knack for melody and penchant for blending genres."
"Their music is dark, honest and insightful and certainly will grow to be a powerful force"
