John and James, The Abrams, are the fourth generation of professional musicians in their family. Barely into their twenties, they have been touring for over a decade. The Abrams come from a strong tradition of Bluegrass and Americana music, and have since created a signature sound that brings Country, Rock and Pop all together in one place.
Starting very young and having already performed at Nashville’s iconic Grand Ole Opry by the age of 12 and 15, The Abrams have gone on to international success, performing for devoted audiences in Canada, the United States, the UK, Europe and Israel and sharing the stage with artists such as Feist, The Dixie Chicks, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, and Tom Cochrane.
As recipients of the Daniel Pearl Memorial Violin, The Abrams were recognized as international ambassadors for peace by the Daniel Pearl Foundation in New York City. In 2012 they were named Best New Artist at the Canadian Country Music Awards. John and James have been a mainstay on CMT Pure in the United States with their music video for “Northern Redemption,” are played regularly on BBC Radio 2, CBC and NPR and have charted in the top 100 on Canadian Country Radio and Canadian Alternative Rock Radio.
The Abrams, recently signed with Radio Arts Media Partners Music, are currently working on their fifth studio album with Juno award winning and Grammy nominated producer Gavin Brown, who helped launch the careers of Three Days Grace, and Billy Talent, and has produced records for Lady Gaga, The Barenaked Ladies, The Tragically Hip, and Metric.
The Abrams are proud to endorse GHS strings.
