Greg Cornell & The Cornell Brothers

Original roots music from Brooklyn. Songs of redemption and hope.

"Cornell visits the deep, looming sense of longing that's often tied to bluegrass or folksy tracks...and steers clear of any cliches."--Connor Feimster, Mind Equals Blown

CD Release Party Aug. 2 in NYC; 2 Singles Released

The Cornell Brothers will celebrate the release of their new 10-song album, Come On Home, at one of NYC's best-loved venues, Rockwood Music Hall's Stage 2, this Tuesday, August 2, at 10:00 pm. There is no admission but there is a $10 drink minimum.

Produced by the band's fiddle player Adam Moss and engineered and mixed by 3-time Grammy winner Justin Guip, the music ranges from bluegrass, to blues, to country, with the occasional electric guitar and pedal steel adding some weight to the acoustic sound the band has been honing for the past six years.

The album has been getting some attention prior to its release, on the heels of the release of two singles: Broken Wings, which Greg Cornell co-wrote with his girlfriend Sarah Johnson, had an exclusive premiere on Post to Wire and a review on Breathing the Core. The second single, Heavenly Rain, premiered on Mind Equals Blown, where reviewer Connor Feimster has this to say about the song:

As for the song itself, Cornell visits the deep, looming sense of longing that’s often tied to bluegrass or folksy tracks. “Heavenly Rain” takes no prisoners and steers clear of any overused clichés the genre(s) may beg to offer. Cornell’s band The Cornell Brothers may keep his musical boat afloat, but if you listen closely enough, you might begin to hear some new twangs with each listen, making pieces of it stand out amongst the rest of the genre.
