When you can hear the breeze blowing through the leaves and feel the sunshine warming your soul, that is one of the many feelings Brother Jerome embodies. Founded by singer-songwriter Ryan Bria, Brother Jerome was created as homage to his late brother Jerome “Drew” Bria, a peace loving man who stood for righteousness and love. These characteristics are but a foundation of what the band has grown to be. After being a side-man for a litany of local acts, Ryan was set on creating a project of his own, one that would cultivate positivity and unity amongst a divided world. He then linked up with long time friend and multi-instrumentalist Dan Chetnik (Saxophone and Vocals), alongside Bassist Stephan Lemos. Lastly, Andy Davis (Drums) joined the group, bringing with him the back-beat that’s at the heart of Brother Jerome’s sound. The group then hit the studio to record their debut self-titled demo “Brother Jerome,” all the while writing and perfecting a mélange of additional songs and sounds that are sure to make dance. Most recently the group hit the studio to record their full-length album "Progress," all the while supporting numerous national acts such as Michael Franti and Spearhead, Dark Star Orchestra, Mike Love, Passafire, and Ballyhoo.
