To mark their tenth year on the road together The Lost Brothers have recorded their 5th album in Tuscon Arizona with legendary indie hero Howe Gelb (PJ Harvey, Calexico ) and Gabriel Sullivan (Giant Sand, M Ward) at the production helm.
The collaboration includes co-writes with Glen Hansard and instrumentation from Steve Wickham (The Waterboys).
Since 2007 The Lost Brothers have collaborated with the likes of Brendan Benson, Bill-Ryder Jones, Richard Hawley, and Mike Coykendall to produce four critically acclaimed albums.
Now on their 5th LP they have crafted a genre that is completely their own – a cinematic view of an unknown landscape. It’s roots music, but not as we know it.
Over the years they have honed an exhilarating live set and have toured with Elvis Costello, Jolie Holland and Billy Bragg to name but a few.
“Halfway Towards A Healing is a hypnotic stunning masterpiece…babies shall be made to this music across the darkened planet…holy fuck this is good.” Howe Gelb 2017
“What I love about The Lost Brothers is how their songs often seem quite placid on the surface. Then one realizes just how depth-charged they truly are.” Paul Muldoon (Paul Simon co-songwriter and Head Of Creative Writing Princeton University 2017)

“With emotionally wrenching and confessional songwriting the Lost Brothers have the remarkable ability of making a large spacious room feel very intimate indeed. Their masterful blend of careful songwriting and tuneful harmonies make a lasting impact.” Live Review- The Huffington Post
“The Lost Brothers are easily one of the best bands of the last ten years. There is a darkness in their music without having to play brutally. If we must have our asses handed to us by a better band, I want that band to be the Lost Brothers.” Dan Sartain (Third Man Records)
