Dave and Russell have been making music together for more years than they care to remember, in different bands and in various lineups. Now an acoustic duo, they decided a few years ago to concentrate purely on writing and performing their own songs. Sometimes writing separately and sometimes together, their signature style features beautifully blended harmony vocals and finely crafted guitar arrangements. Their lyrics tend towards the melancholy, but often include wry humour, social observation and even philosophical musing. And they are not averse to playing the odd love song. The duo have recorded two albums - "The Melancholy Brothers" (2015) and "Until The Sun Goes Down" (2018). The Melancholy Brothers appear regularly at folk clubs and acoustic venues in the Midlands and Warwickshire.
