The Band

John and James, The Abrams Brothers, are the fourth generation of professional musicians in their family. Barely into their twenties, they have been touring for over a decade. The brothers 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.

Having started at an early age, by the time they were 12 and 15, The Abrams Brothers had already performed at Nashville’s iconic Grand Ole Opry. They have since gone on to have international success, performing for devoted audiences in Canada, the United States, the UK, Europe and Israel, sharing the stage with artists such as Feist, The Dixie Chicks, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson and Tom Cochrane.

The Abrams Brothers were the recipients of the Daniel Pearl Memorial Violin, and 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. They have been a mainstay on CMT Pure in the United States with their music video for “Northern Redemption,” and are played regularly on BBC Radio 2, CBC and NPR. They have charted in the top 100 on Canadian Country Radio and Canadian Alternative Rock Radio.

The Abrams Brothers, recently signed with RAMP 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, Billy Talent and The Midway State, and has produced records for Lady Gaga, The Barenaked Ladies, The Tragically Hip, and Metric.

The Abrams Brothers are proud to endorse GHS strings.

    Blue on Brown

    Blue on Brown is a cover album of songs written by Arlo Guthrie and Bob Dylan.  The record was the boys’ tribute to songwriters they had always admired, and even Arlo Guthrie, the legend himself, chimed in saying they were “way too young to be playing that good.”
