The Morrison Brothers Band

The Morrison Brothers Band

The Morrison Brothers Band is an unsigned group whose sound fuses elements of Southern Rock, Blues, Pop and Country Music.

Founded in 2006 by brothers Truman and Willie Morrison, the California-based outfit began composing the groundwork for their debut album by performing regularly in the Los Angeles area. After relocating to their hometown of Washington D.C. in 2008, the Morrison Brothers assembled a new lineup with brothers Matt and Kevin Nolan to build an East Coast following and finish work on their first album, "Midnight in Virginia."

In 2009, the opening track off the album took first place in the Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Competition. A year later, the group was selected as the Gigatone Songwriter and Performer of the Year.

In the summer of 2011, the Morrison Brothers independently released their second album, “Shotgun Silhouette.” Several cuts from the album are still experiencing regular airtime on radio stations across the country such as 98.7 WMZQ.

The band has headlined many prestigious venues in the DC area such as the 9:30 Club, the Birchmere, the State Theatre, the Hamilton and the Mellon Auditorium. The Morrison Brothers have also shared the stage and been featured at music festivals with the likes of Allison Krauss, Steely Dan, Third Eye Blind, Maroon 5, and the Steve Miller Band.

The band is now performing regularly in the Southern and Eastern United States to promote their second recorded offering. They are also writing and finalizing songs for their third album, which they plan to record in the fall of 2012 and release at the beginning of 2013.

Among the group's countless musical influences, the band highlights The Zac Brown Band, The Allman Brothers Band, Little Feat, The Black Crowes, and Sam Cooke as being particularly influential. As one critic from Picket magazine described the group's sound, “It’s as if Van Morrison, O.A.R. and the Eagles had a baby.”
