Follow up to ‘Tonight At The Arizona’, The Guardian’s #13 album of 2007.The Felice Brothers have recently signed to Conor Oberst’s Team Love label in the US.Simone, Ian and James Felice are the three eldest boys from a family of seven, born carpenter's sons in the wilds of the Catskill Mountains. Along with a runaway dice-thrower and chancer called Christmas they moved their Sunday BBQ singalongs onto the streets and subways of NYC. In the spring of 2007 The Felice Brothers released their debut album ‘Tonight At The Arizona’ on Loose Music in Europe where subsequent gigs and festival appearances confirmed their growing reputation as a live force to be reckoned with. After making their way across the USA this summer for their first tour, the band hooked up with Bright Eyes for a string of rousing dates on the East Coast that culminated in a performance on the venerated stage at NYC's Radio City Music Hall. Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes promptly signed the band to his own Team Love label in the USA. The Felice Brothers’ distinct brand of songwriting and the lawless sound they've forged has earned them comparisons to Woody Guthrie, The Pogues, The Band and a young Bruce Springsteen. The sound that emerges from their instruments is seeped with an instinctive authenticity that's rooted in tradition but is also entirely their own.
