Jason Kloess and James Mason, two brothers in song - not blood, though maybe beards - have cultivated a sound that’s a little bit bluesy, a little bit folky and a little bit rock ‘n’ roll. When forced to give it a name, the boys will tell you it’s “harmony-driven American rock with a ‘70s sensibility.” Other tastemakers are describing their sound as “warm, rootsy pop.” Ultimately, you may have to decide for yourself. They’ve skimmed inspiration from each and created a sound that feels uniquely their own with poignant tunes that scale the depth of their personality and communicate their story with remarkable power. As to how they acquired their name, Mason recalls, “It was Presidents’ Day. It was our first day in the studio. We had the songs, but we didn’t have a name. There were two of them and two of us. I like to think they would have been fans of our music.” Their April 2017 release, “The Greatest Thing You’ll Ever Learn,” reached #5 on iTunes singer/songwriter charts, placing them among some of their earliest childhood heroes, including Simon and Garfunkel, Carole King and James Taylor. Sure there’s some mandolin in there, but their music, at its core, is heartfelt, genuine music that belongs to them alone and not any genre.
