#4M : Under The Influence
Welcome back to Monday’s Music Moves Me!
Our Musical Conductor this month is Michele from Angels Bark . But today, we have been left to our own devices as it is ‘Free Choice’ week.
I had thought about doing another YouTube Roulette week, but I’m thinking I might just do that once a month - unless of course, I’m at a complete loss for something to share.
This week, I’m Under the Influence…. Of your posts. Let me explain.
Recently, a certain duo has been finding their way into my recommended videos as well as my Facebook newsfeed. At first, I thought perhaps they showed up because Cherdo at Cherdo on the Flipside recently had a battle of the bands that focused on harmonies. But I can’t really be certain it was her post that brought this to attention. It could have easily been one of the several other videos that I’ve watched over the past few weeks. This is the video that popped up on my radar:
My first reaction was - HOLY SMOKES! These guys really sound great together! And then I watched the video again (a few times!!) The next thing I noticed is these two guys look alike - they MUST be brothers. Curiosity got the best of me and I had to start digging around and watching more of their videos. Here are a couple more:
They don’t just do covers - here is an original:
I am really digging their sound, so I had to learn more about these guys. Turns out these two guys come from a very musical family. They look alike because they are identical twins. They also have brother born the same date, who is a fraternal triplet to them, as well as another brother that is one year older. The four boys have been performing together since the age of 3. Their mother, Darlana, is an award winning Country musician and their father (Frank) played with a few rock bands (although - I could not find any specific information on the parents). The boys started in the country music scene and later progressed toward the pop/rock sound.
Here are the four boys performing one of their more popular songs
And I just had to share this gem that I found in my research. Be sure to watch to the end.
It’s hard for me to imagine that they’ve been performing as a group for so long, and I am just now learning about them.
Just think, it might be a video that you share on your blog that influences my next post, so keep on sharing your great finds.
