“One of the Midwest’s hottest acts” (Shepherd Express), Bascom Hill, is riding a wave of advance acclaim for their self-titled new release (out Sept 7 on Arrival Records) and will debut music from the record at shows with the Bryan Bros Band on July 25 at The Air Conditioned Lounge in Venice and on July 26 at Molly Malone’s. The shows will benefit Save The Schools: http://savesantamonicamalibuschools.org/SOSevents.html. Counting Crows drummer Jim Bogios will be joining the Bryan Bros Band for both shows.
Bascom Hill, who writes “great melodies and memorable songs” (Mark Goodman/Sirius XM Radio), has been known and loved as one of the Midwest’s top songwriters and hottest acts, as demonstrated by their recent Wisconsin Area Music Industry Award for Pop Artist of the Year earlier this year. The Bryan Brothers recently teamed up with Bascom Hill to make a surprise guest appearance in Bascom Hill’s new video “My World (sucks to be you.)” Tennis isn’t the twin’s only passion. Their debut release, “Let It Rip,” was released late last year and features Bob Bryan on bass and keyboards, Mike Bryan on drums, and David Baron as the lead vocalist as well as on piano and guitar.
