The Jacob Jolliff Band
The Jacob Jolliff Band
Jacob started his own band in the Fall of 2015. While instrumentation-wise it's a traditional bluegrass ensemble, they call on a huge number of outside influences to create a unique take on roots music.

The group features Jacob's long-time partner-in-crime, Alex Hargreaves, on fiddle. The two of them have been playing together since middle school, both growing up in the Oregon bluegrass scene. Alex is widely considered one of best improvising violinists in the world and has won several national fiddle competitions, including The Grand Masters Fiddle Championship and The National Oldtime Fiddlers' Contest. Hargreaves is also a member of the Turtle Island String Quartet.

For the guitar slot, Jacob called one of his all-time favorite picking buddies, Stash Wyslouch. Stash cut his teeth touring with The Deadly Gentleman, a contemporary of Joy Kills Sorrow in the Boston bluegrass scene. In addition to being an incredibly distinctive and shredding guitar player, Stash is also a powerful and versatile singer. He tours with his own project, The Stash! Band, in addition to playing with Molsky's Mountain Drifters.

Ironically, bassist Jeff Picker grew up right down the street from Alex and Jacob in Oregon, but they didn't meet until they were all living in NYC--ten years after leaving the northwest. Jeff created a name for himself tearing up the Portland jazz scene and won multiple national jazz competitions. Though he's quite capable of slaying bebop in thumb position, he also has a true appreciation for the nuances of bluegrass, and is an accomplished guitarist and singer as well. He currently tours with Sarah Jarosz.

"The Brother Brothers’ 2017 EP Tugboats might be one of the best releases of the year." -Saving Country Music

TWIN BROTHERS ADAM AND DAVID MOSS ARE A MUSICAL DUO UNLIKE MOST OTHERS.

THE BROTHER BROTHERS sound is striking and undeniably captivating. Often leaning towards the darker, moody elements of Appalachian folk, klezmer, and bluegrass traditions, their songs are. They tour as an acoustic duo: David on cello and guitar, and Adam on the 5-string fiddle. With individual storied careers in the americana scene under their belts, the brothers are finally teaming up to bring their experiences together.
