Brightwood: band review.


Named after a small town in Oregon, this band is a local phenomenon quickly becoming a national sensation.

Currently touring promoting their full-length album, Wake, released July '08, Brightwood is impressing audiophiles and making new fans nationwide.

Led by frontman Andrew Brittell's soaring vocals, the band's sound is completed by guitarist Colin Schneider, bassist Matt Fosket, and drummer Stephen Brittell's percussion and vocal harmonies--yes, the drummer sings while playing the drumset. In fact, Andrew & Stephen are identical twins, so during both the recording of an album and live the band's vocal melodies and harmonies perfectly mesh.

Seriously, check them out at and
