The Other Brothers

"Three of the best musical talents in Chicago...like a "Supergroup."  I just want to know when is the next gig." 

 - Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune


MICHAEL MILES--banjo, guitar, vocals

LLOYD BRODNAX KING--flute, bass, vocals

JOHNSE HOLT--guitar, percussion, vocals

 

Michael Miles is one of the most innovative clawhammer banjo players in the world, as well as a master guitarist and singer. Lloyd Brodnax King is a virtuoso flute soloist and award-winning composer. Johnse Holt is a brilliant vocalist, guitar master, multi-instrumentalist and studio musician.  The Other Brothers bring a world-beat twist to American music. 

 

After 35 years of collaborating, Michael, Johnse and Lloyd formed this band with one goal: combine their vast knowledge of American and world genres into a seamless, inspiring sound.

 

"Miles has dared to take on some of the most dramatic and profound music ever written…and succeeded." 
         - Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune
