Independent artists, The Brummies, made up of vocalists and multi-instrumentalists John Davidson and Jacob Bryant, and drummer Trevor Davis, have been playing together in various incarnations since high school, growing up together outside of Birmingham, AL. The members count the Beatles, Elton John, ELO, Blitzen Trapper and My Morning Jacket among their influences, but also have an affinity for sweeping film soundtracks. Their trademark sound evokes the psych-rock vibe of the Sixties and the soft indie-folk of the Nineties, yet possesses a timeless quality all its own.
Previous album Eternal Reach was recorded at Battle Tapes Recording in Nashville with Grammy award-winning engineer Jeremy Ferguson (Cage The Elephant) and co-producer David Hopkins. The album which Billboard magazine states as “gorgeous,” “lush,” and “…an album to be listened to from start to finish,” includes single “Drive Away” featuring Grammy-winner Kacey Musgraves.
The threesome recently completed their second studio album, Automatic World, co-producing this next body of work with Austin Jenkins (Leon Bridges) and Jarrad K (Ruston Kelly). You will find a natural evolution and maturity with this new music, written or co-written entirely by the band. There are rhythmic guitar riffs straight out the Seventies, hypnotic Moog passages that evoke the electronica of Giorgio Moroder, & even the bright tones of soul music. It exists in those atmospheric notes that soundtrack our subconscious. Automatic World was recently released on November 13, 2020.
The band has toured domestically and internationally playing with St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Kacey Musgraves, the Wild Feathers, NEEDTOBREATHE, and BANNERS among others. They have played festivals such as Electric Picnic, Bonnaroo, Sloss, MOTM, and Hangout and to date have logged over 18 million streams organically as independent artists.
