Asian Red (8-song CD)
Formerly a cover band, Grab Brothers have released a full length of original music. Far from derivative, this album offers up a fresh slice of Americana, owing a lot to the sound of seventies bands like Pink Floyd and the Eagles, while also delving deep into independent influences like Wilco, Grant Lee Buffalo, Chris Smither, and the Blood Oranges. The result is an easy blend of folk, country and classic rock. This album really succeeds on the easy, laid back flow of melodic ideas. All in all, this CD stands as a cohesive band album and an album that bears repeated listening for those who want a little flavor in their classic rock without sounding trite or cliché.

Grab Brothers mix it up musically on latest CD.

This band of brothers — which, when playing live, also includes non-sibs Jason Wamboldt on drums and Rob Scott on keyboards and guitars — says there is one element of a relationship that can rise above any differences and conflicts: making music. [...]
