Biography

Palenville NY, United States (2006 – present)

The Felice Brothers are a / band from upstate New York founded in 2006. The band comprises five main members: Ian Felice (lead vocals, guitar, piano), David Turbeville (drums, vocals), James Felice (accordion, piano, organ), and Christmas (bass), previously a traveling dice player. They have been joined by Farley, a washboard player and fiddler, and others who at times had a horn section to the band. The brothers are from the Catskill Mountains of New York. They hail from Palenville, NY, twenty minutes from Woodstock.

The brothers began playing together on Sunday afternoons at their father’s barbecues but the band started when they moved to a little apartment in Brooklyn and began to play at the Subway stations near 42nd. Street and Union Square in Greenwich Village.

They released their debut album Through These Reins and Gone in 2006 and in 2007 they got a deal with Loose Music in Europe. Through These Reins and Gone made it onto Radio Woodstock WDST’s top 25 albums of 2006. The Felice Brothers have played at Levon Helm’s Midnight Ramble in Woodstock, NY, toured with Bright Eyes played at the 2008 Clearwater Festival, and Bonnaroo in Manchester, TN.

    Hey I like Celebration Florida! It's definitely different than their other stuff but it's not bad by any means. All bands like to experiment with their sound once in a while.

    Well, the Uncut music magazine never stops lauding them. And all the praise is justified for sure

    These guys have always gotten tepid reviews. I've listened to their music for years, seen them live many times, I've met them. I think they're just too real for the entitled little shits at pitchfork and the like.

    You shouldn't. Even just for the sake of "River Jordan". But yes, glad to hear them doing stuff like this again!

    They have their own label and used to record in their own chicken coop - indie enough for you?
