THE BROTHERS COMATOSE

The Brothers Comatose is a five-piece string band from California who make songs deeply rooted in this country’s past — traditional bluegrass, country and rock ‘n’ roll — with a contemporary spirit of experimentation, and an eye toward expanding Americana’s future.

Founded in 2009 by Petaluma-born brothers Ben and Alex Morrison (vocals, guitar and banjo) and their classically trained friend Philip Brezina (violin), the band has built an international following based on their warm, resonant songwriting, rowdy live shows, and an impressively relentless touring schedule.

When It All Falls Apart, out in the spring of 2022 on Swamp Jam Records, is the sixth full-length from the Brothers Comatose. It finds the band at a crossroads: in the midst of lineup changes, the pandemic shut down the music industry, and the band was forced to find ways to connect with fans that didn’t involve their famously engaging live shows.
The result is a record about unexpected endings and fresh starts. By turns poignant, painful, passionate and joyful — singer Ben Morrison also became a father during the pandemic, and got to spend time at home with his wife and new daughter — these songs also capture the thrill of the band physically reuniting for the first time after months apart.

Following the release of When It All Falls Apart, the band is looking forward to touring and reconnecting with fans in person, as well as introducing new members Steve Height and Greg Fleischut, experimenting with different forms of media and more unexpected collaborators — and continuing to explore the possibilities that come with not playing 120 shows a year.

“We didn’t know what we were going to do moving forward,” says the songwriter, of the pandemic as a reset. “But it turns out, when it all falls apart, you figure your shit out and you find a new path.”

WOLF JETT
The sound of Wolf Jett will make you dance, sing, and possibly even howl! Its roots run deep through the soul and help heal the heaviness of life. Their music is a celebration of perseverance, infusing folk, blues and americana into what can only be described as "Cosmic Mountain Music.” Frontman Chris Jones (Scary Little Friends) was born in the south and raised in CA, His songs combine the best of both worlds to create a vibe that is fresh, yet immediately familiar to a broad audience. He is joined by long-time musical collaborator Jon Payne (Elliott Peck, The Painted Horses) on drums, Jeff Kissell (Marty O’Reilly and the OSO) on bass, Will Fourt (McCoy Tyler Band) on dobro/guitar and debuting Laura T. Lewis on vocals/percussion, while occasionally featuring Alex Jordan (Midnight North) on keys to boot.

    Founded in 2009 by Petaluma-born brothers Ben and Alex Morrison (vocals, guitar and banjo) and their classically trained friend Philip Brezina (violin), the band has built an international following based on their warm, resonant songwriting, rowdy live shows, and an impressively relentless touring schedule—which has taken them to Australia and China, as well as all over North America. Their fan base functions as family, gathering wherever the band plays, whether it’s at a sold-out show at the Fillmore or at their very own music festival, Comatopia, in the Sierra foothills. 
    When It All Falls Apart, out in the spring of 2022 on Swamp Jam Records, is the sixth full-length from the Brothers Comatose. It finds the band at a crossroads: in the midst of lineup changes, the pandemic shut down the music industry, and the band was forced to find ways to connect with fans that didn’t involve their famously engaging live shows.
    The result is a record about unexpected endings and fresh starts. By turns poignant, painful, passionate and joyful — singer Ben Morrison also became a father during the pandemic, and got to spend time at home with his wife and new daughter — these songs also capture the thrill of the band physically reuniting for the first time after months apart.
    Fans got a glimpse of that exhilaration from “Ear Snacks,” the monthly live performance videos the Brothers Comatose released throughout 2021 & 2022, featuring both cover songs and originals. Each one was recorded over a weekend, with guest collaborators ranging from local friends like Rainbow Girls and Sean Hayes to artists like Jiebing Chen, an erhu player the band met through their American Music Abroad tour of China.
    “Finally getting back with the band was just so joyful,” says Morrison of the videos, which proved hugely popular during a time when music fans were hungering for the magic of a live show. “It’s not like we forgot it was fun to play together, but this felt different — it gave us purpose in a time of uncertainty.”
    Following the release of When It All Falls Apart, the band is looking forward to touring and reconnecting with fans in person, as well as introducing new members Steve Height and Greg Fleischut, experimenting with different forms of media and more unexpected collaborators — and continuing to explore the possibilities that come with not playing 120 shows a year.

    Folk-Blues

    The sound of Wolf Jett will make you dance, sing, and possibly even howl! Its roots run deep through the soul and help heal the heaviness of life. Their music is a celebration of perseverance, infusing folk, blues and americana into what can only be described as "Cosmic Mountain Music.” Frontman Chris Jones (Scary Little Friends) was born in the south and raised in CA, His songs combine the best of both worlds to create a vibe that is fresh, yet immediately familiar to a broad audience. He is joined by long-time musical collaborator Jon Payne (Elliott Peck, The Painted Horses) on drums, Jeff Kissell (Marty O’Reilly and the OSO) on bass, Will Fourt (McCoy Tyler Band) on dobro/guitar and debuting Laura T. Lewis on vocals/percussion, while occasionally featuring Alex Jordan (Midnight North) on keys to boot.

    Wolf Jett was conceived in late 2019 with the intent of bringing people together and putting smiles on their faces. Just prior to the release of their debut album (backed by 3 multi-state tours and various festival appearances) the world was brought to a screeching halt by pandemic. To adapt, they constructed an analog studio at Jon’s residence called “House on a Hill" in Boulder Creek California. Unfortunately, the CZU Lightning fires ripped through Big Basin State Park in August 2020, consuming the house and new studio along with it. Their story was featured in SF Chronicle, Oakland Tribune, San Jose Mercury, Santa Cruz Sentinel, Lookout Santa Cruz and Good Times. Seeing an opportunity to help their community heal, they recorded a breathtakingly emotional live video among the ashes and rubble of where House on a Hill once stood with the help of their friends the T Sisters. Their song "Garden of Pain" has since become a local favorite. 

    Despite hardships, the band continued forward with the release of their self-titled debut album in 2021, which features key Bay Area musicians and friends James Deprato (Chuck Prophet), Stelth Ulvang (the Lumineers), Lorenzo Loera (the California Honeydrops), Eric Yates (Hot Buttered Rum), and Jan Purat (AJ Lee & Blue Summit). You can hear them online and on local radio stations KPIG and KBCZ in Santa Cruz.
