The Mallett Brothers Band is a band from Maine that plays original music. With a unique style that spans across country, rock and roll, Americana and "alt-country" genres, the band has grown a dedicated fan base across the country since releasing their debut record in 2009. With the upcoming release of their fourth studio album, "Lights Along the River," the band continues its rigorous touring schedule (playing upwards of 150 shows a year across the country), and its mission of sending genuine, heartfelt and independent music out into the world.
Over the last 6 years, The Mallett Brothers Band has proven to be an underground powerhouse, constantly touring and building a die hard fanbase across the nation, while still calling the state of Maine their home. With songs that can range from alt country, to americana, honkytonk, jam or roots rock, theirs is a musical melting pot that's influenced equally by folk and singer/songwriter influences as it is by harder rock, twang and psychedelic sounds. Led by brothers Luke and Will Mallett, the band is rounded out by Brian Higgins on drums, Nick Leen on bass, Wally on dobro and electric guitar, and sometimes filled out by Matt Mills on lead guitar, pedal steel and banjo. It's song-driven music that holds up under the lens of solitary listening, but that's equally apt to crank a room full of rockers into whiskey-fueled high gear.
Since forming in 2009, the band has already released three full length albums and toured the country tirelessly. They have provided support for acts ranging from The Josh Abbot Band, Blackberry Smoke, Charlie Robison, and the Turnpike Troubadours, to legends like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, and 38 Special. Their touring circuit stretches from the Appalachian to the Rocky Mountains, from Maine to Mississippi, and they've appeared in front of many fine people at some of the finest music venues in the country, including the Continental Club in Austin, the legendary Gruene Hall in New Braunfels TX, the Birchmere in Alexandria VA, the Bluebird in Nashville TN, Meadowbrook Pavilion in NH, and more.
Now set to relese their fourth album, “Lights Along The River”, in the beginning of 2015 The Mallett Brothers Band has no intention of slowing down or being quiet. “Lights Along The River” was recorded in a remote, boat access only location in northern Maine. Many of the songs came out of the touring life, gifts of the road, while many also came from the remote and cold places the band calls home. The addition of Matt Mills and his instruments, along with a little of his songwriting, on this new record has taken the sound to a new level.
