The very first time I heard The Bros Landreth my heart jumped “those boys were raised on Little Feat (One of the very best bands to ever step onto a stage. Anywhere)
They were led by the late Lowell George. Lead singer, primary writer, singular guitarist.
When I got to interview Joey and brother David, they spun a story of growing up in Winnipeg. Their father was a well-known working musician and the house was filled with Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Poco records but the most popular were the early 70’s albums by Little Feat. (Little Feat. Sailin’ Shoes. Dixie Chicken. Feats don’t fail me now)
It was a true musical education.
This all leads us to this Podcast featuring Joey Landreth and his new solo album All that you dream.
It’s a tribute to Lowell George and Little Feat. A “thank you” if you will.
Turns out, we’re the ones who should be saying thank you. It’s a beautiful table full of the Little Feat Dixie Chicken. One generation saluting another.
The Bros are headed back to Europe for tour dates (listed here)
Remarkably they are even bigger stars in Europe than here but that imbalance will surely change this year when this killer solo album is joined by the next Bros Landreth album, in the Spring!
