“Singing guitarists Ian and Dustin Meadows prove that roots music is an unending resource, turning influences into an engagingly twangy sibling sound all their own.” - The Boston Globe

Somewhere on the back dusty roads of America the Blues met up with Country and the two went rambling and running like a couple of teenagers in love, set free from home for the first time. They borrowed some clothes and money from their cousins Folk and Bluegrass and what was consummated on those steamy Summer nights became a gaggle of children sucking at mama’s musical teats until well-fed and ready to ride out on their own. Somewhere in this Americana lineage exists a brother duo from Connecticut hell bent on tracing their musical roots as far back as they can, while leaving their own gritty trail for others to follow. Dustin and Ian Meadows subscribe to the ‘less is more’ theory of songwriting. Instead of employing a varied array of hired guns to fill out their sound, The Meadows Brothers rely solely on each other – Dustin on harmonica, both on guitars and vocals – to complete their sonic journey with countrified enthusiasm and blues-tinged aesthetics. Unlike so many other acts before though these Meadows boys are able to create a full and vibrant sound on their debut album, Won’t Be Troubled, by simply laying down sweet harmonies and honest songwriting. Bombast and over-production need not apply. The job of taking you on that aforementioned ride down the back roads of American Roots music is deftly filled already. Chip McCabe - Lonesome Noise
