A pillow fight. Bare knuckles. Sunshine and thunder. Fluff and steel. Sticks like glue. Take no prisoners. That's Brother Firetribe for you.
If you were not doing music, you would be...
...lost. Someone totally different.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
I'm a sports fan, especially ice hockey. I like to draw and cook. I do professional voice overs too.
Pick ONE song on your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
A song called 'Two Hearts' from a few years back was written literally in 20 minutes. Tomppa, our keyboard player, had promised to write a song to somebody's wedding but had totally forgotten about it. He panicked and came up with the basic structure in 10 minutes, walked up to me and asked for help, so I wrote the lyrics and melody right there on the spot in another 10 minutes. It's full of cliches but worked well for a wedding song. And it made a cool bonus track for our Heart Full of Fire album.
Finish this sentence: Brother Firetribe is the artist that...
...always plays from the heart.
There you go. We made the intro to a cool band. We suggest you seek them out. You won't be disappointed.
Did you dig these guys as much as we did?
