The Talbott Brothers - January 30th
The Talbott Brothers Kick off 2014 House Concert Series
The Talbott Brothers are blues/rock singer-songwriters based out of Omaha, NE. Brothers Tyler and Nick Talbott found themselves half a country away from home when they spent the better part of last winter touring to promote their debut album, Leaving Home. What came out of the strenuous tour was a record about what happens when being away from home becomes its own lifestyle. Full of raw, organic songs, The Road became their sophomore acoustic album.
Earlier in spring 2013, heading toward what would be a successful crowd-funding process via Kickstarter,the seeds of The Road were already sprouting when Nick — who splits songwriting, singing and guitar duties with Tyler — auditioned a definitive track. In addition to the autobiographical details about the pavement and the highway signs, Tyler says he derives a more metaphorical meaning from the track, as well.
The Talbott Brothers aren’t just singing about The Road with a capital “R,” but one road in particular: the path Robert Frost calls “less traveled by.” In the Talbott songwriting rulebook, identifying a universal message in what might begin as a personal song is as important as crafting the song in the first place. For Tyler, the broader resonance of “The Road” is posing the question of what a listener will do when confronted with his or her own challenging winter tour.
When your bandmates leave to pursue other careers — as the two non-Talbott members of The Talbott Brothers did leading up to the making of The Road — is the reward of the road less traveled worth the strain? (Written by: Chance Solem-Pfeifer of HearNebraska)
They’ve shared the stage with artists such as: Red Wanting Blue, Justin Moore, Caleb Hawley, Darrell Scott, Reed Grimm, Steel Wheels, Brad Collerick, Remedy Drive, Starfield, Me In Motion, The Afters, Girlyman and The Deadly Gentlemen
