ACT LINE UP(S)
The BR Duo have almost gleefully kept themselves outside of the box marked ‘Liverpool bands’ since their beginnings in 2009. It’s simply never been a party they wanted to attend, not an existence they cherished or relished, thanks very much. Regular gigging, though, and a focus on the songs have always been the order of the day. Such has their need been to concentrate on the music, the rehearsals, the writing and the recording. The whole point of being in a band in the first place.
As a consequence, they’re a formidable live prospect, and have embarked on performing full time after nearly 15 years recording, writing and performing professionally. Very much part of the Music industry, they collaborate with other artists as writers, recoding publishing material for adverts, TV and Film.
Their trademark, the sweet, sun-drenched natural soul to be found in the west coast harmonies of singers Ben and Iain. There are some voices that are meant to be paired together, and these two are a perfect example of the maxim. A naturality that requires no effect, no push. It just is. Human relationships. The truth, pain, hope, emotion and honesty are all in the performances. The connect and the disconnect. The now and the then. Themes of love and life we all think of, but don’t necessarily verbalise in the way we’d hope to. On a personal level, they’ve taken some hits along the way, and there’s no fear, no shame in talking about it.
The guys pride themselves in offering a professional, caring and individual approach to personal events, taking time to get to know couples, clients and owners to make sure what they offer is always up to expectations. The unique vocal pairing coupled with a diligent and positive attitude has set them apart on the local circuit and the feedback has been consistently fantastic.
Iain & Ben were fantastic for our party, great lads, perfect for what we wanted.
