Based near Duluth, MN, The Brothers Burn Mountain are a soulful duo of real-life brothers, Ryan and Jesse Dermody. They've been playing music together everyday as a duo for more than 19 years. They've released 9 full-length albums of original music, and have toured across the country over the years, though especially in the Midwest, having played more than 1,700 live shows. Their sound is a roiling melting pot of so many musical influences, that it's hard to describe, except as energetic and eclectic; with afro-cuban rhythms, Zappa-esque spontanaeity, grittiness, bluesyness, tenderness, and a singer-songwriter, folky flair. They're currently working on a new album, The Dark Exchange, a collaboration with Alan Sparhawk of Low.
