Biography

The Webb Brothers are Christiaan Webb, Justin and James Webb, sons of songwriter Jimmy Webb. Christiaan and Justin attended Boston University together before moving to Chicago. The band recorded a demo with drummer Neil Ostrovsky in 1998 and shopped it around to labels, but none expressed any interest. The band played a successful show in London, England, and moved there in January 1999 hoping their fortunes would be better there.

The band released a limited edition 7” EP there, which sold out in a week, and significant media attention followed. They inked a deal with Warner Music, releasing a compilation of their demos called ‘Beyond The Bioshpere’ on the major label in the summer of 1999, and followed it with the critically-acclaimed Maroon on Atlantic Records in 2000. James then joined his brothers in 2003 for a self-titled release on 679 Records.

The Webb Brothers are now based in Los Angeles and have recorded several mini-projects, such as ‘Music From The God Helmet’.

In 2009, The Webb Brothers teamed up with their father to form ‘Jimmy Webb & The Webb Brothers’, releasing the album Cottonwood Farm and touring the UK in November. Cornelius Webb plays bass for the band, on drums was Cal Campbell (son of Glen Campbell). Tim Walker provided pedal steel guitar.

    Booked tickets for Christiaan Webb's solo show in my home city. Bristol April 18th at St Bonaventure's. Man! I used to go to mass there and song Christmas Carols as a kid - how weird yet brilliant! :)

    Saw them in Brighton and it was one of the best and most chaotic gigs I've ever seen. Ended with the then not-in-the-band younger brother duckwalking around the stage like Chuck Berry, smashed out of his mind. Maroon is an all-time classic to my ears and it borders on criminal that they were not a LOT more popular.

    this band should have been much, much bigger. I feel like driving through Soho in London with 'liar's club' blasting out of a loud hailer at all the coke-addled media fucktards that hang there.
