Hailing from Athens, Ga, the city most well-known as the home of chart-topping bands like R.E.M. and B-52s, The Tuten Brothers seem to be inspired by the legacy of their town. Known for their epic live show, they've already made a big splash in the Georgia music scene, headlining for packed houses at the iconic Georgia Theatre and opening for acts like The Dirty Guv'nahs and Drake White.
The band's debut single, "Southern Sunrise," which they recorded in a spare bedroom of their cousin's house in Athens, had a 10-week stint on 94.9 the Bull, Atlanta's largest country station. After the song's success, the band took to the studio to record an album in Nashville, TN with Alex Gilson of Gold Cassette Productions. Two of the songs from the EP, "Sarah" and "Why You Gotta," were also featured for 10-weeks on 94.9 the Bull.
Most recently, the brothers released singles "Hallelujah" and "Dancin' Boots." Their newest singles give a nod to Southern Rock and Gospel while staying true to the Brothers' roots in country music. With more music releases, shows, and festivals slated for the near future, 2018 looks to be an exciting time for The Tuten Brothers.
"These boys are bringing back classic country with a twang of rock 'n' roll, reminiscent of the timeless appeal of Hank Williams, Jr., and bringing it back in a big way. These boys are making a statement on the future of country, and I’ll be damned if I’m not excited for it." - The Odyssey
The band is comprised of Andrew Wilson (vocals and strings), Tommy Trautwein (vocals, strings, and keys), Clay Milling (tubs), and Hayden Busch (Fender bass).
Jester’s latest EP, Not Coming Home, is out on all streaming services now. The four song compilation portrays the various colors and influences of the members of Jester. The songs range from fun, high energy to emotionally driven rock. Although the songs show diversity the band still stays true to its alternative roots. Jester has songs that any music lover can enjoy, so throw on some Jester and see for yourself why people can’t get enough of this band.
