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.”


THE SAM CHASE

The Sam Chase & The Untraditional hails from San Francisco, California. This juggernaut of a band blends rock n roll with folk music while maintaining the sensibilities and attitudes that come from growing up on a healthy diet of punk rock. 

​The leader of the band is The Sam Chase himself, a natural storyteller with a voice that sounds as if it has weathered many an epic tale.  With boot-stomping orchestration and lyrics that have been immortalized on the tattooed skin of their fans, The Sam Chase & The Untraditional doesn’t mess around. 

These are the warriors we need in these troubled times.

 . . . . . 

"I love Sam Chase. He’s got mischievous eyes and a booming voice. He’s a clever songsmith and a dazzling performer. He was born in the punk scene and raised on the back of Merle Haggard and John Prine and was given dollops of Woody Guthrie in his oatmeal. He’s sensitive and gruff at the same time in equal doses. I call him sensigruff. His voice is so powerful he could’ve cut through the noise on the floor of The New York Stock Exchange in the height of the 80s. Everyone would’ve just shut their pie-holes and listened to what the man had to say. Sam Chase is an American original and a welcome card carrying member of the united family of songwriting troubadours. God bless you Sam Chase."

THE BROTHERS COMATOSE (Night 2 of 3) with The Sam Chase

    Bluegrass

    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—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.
