Dallas and Travis Good developed their deep fondness and reverence for country, bluegrass and blues naturally as the nephews and sons of the iconic Good Brothers, giving them a rock solid base to launch a career some 22 years and 14 albums ago. Drummer Mike Belitsky and bassist Sean Dean help the brothers weave an intense tapestry built on a jigsaw puzzle of influences that fit together perfectly into sonic snapshots worthy of the cool, moody brilliance of an Alex Colville painting. Like a surfing cowboy wearing a Nehru jacket, they’re versatile, flexible and adventurous, creating an evolving catalogue of work and constantly collecting converts. Blistering instrumentals, country rave-ups, super-human guitar interplay and mind-blowing psychedelic expeditions that can end up anywhere create a live show that exemplifies why they have few peers. Considered a band’s band, their fans and collaborators range from expat British punk rocker Jon Langford, L.A. troubadours X’s John Doe, old timey R&B master Andre Williams, alt-country star Neko Case and indie-rocker Jon Spencer to Canadians Neil Young and Buffy Sainte-Marie, who provided mouth-bow and haunting vocals on their most recent album.
