“The Sumner Brothers effortlessly combine all the disparate forms of roots music to create a sound that elevates them to the top of the heap (The Felice Brothers, Chatham County Line and The Avett Brothers are all pushing and struggling not to fall off that same heap).” – SongsIllinois.com
“Even the most stringent Willie Nelson fan would be challenged to find fault…” — Herohill.com – Halifax, NS.
“This ain’t no novel, by God, it’s non-fiction. Real, bleeding, pissing, moaning, crying, pleading, questioning, bone breaking, eye-gouging, ear-biting, down in the dirt fighting for your life kind of music” — Lonestar Magazine – Austin TX

In the words of Bruce Springsteen, “Nothing feels better than blood on blood”. Brothers and front-
men Brian and Bob Sumner share a bond that requires no flattery – a family pact that keeps their music honest and authentic. Their upcoming release I’ll Be There Tomorrow holds true to what their devoted fans know and love; the raw grit of steel string guitar and banjo, the lonesome hum of a harmonica, Bob’s haunting tenor croon, the devastatingly low baritone of brother Brian. Holed up in a log cabin in the mountains of Merritt, B.C. The Sumner Brothers created a true alt-country gem. Their three previous albums have all met with critical acclaim; In The Garage charted in the top 10 for Folk/Roots/Blues on Canadian College Radio; Sumner Brothers – Self Titled placed in The Province Newspaper’s 2008 top ten list, Herohill.com’s top 20 and You Crazy Dreamers’ favorites for 2009 and In The Garage 2 – You’re Last Chance was featured in Slowcoustic’s top Canadian records of 2010 and received 4.5 stars from Americanrootsuk.com.
