About Gentleman Brawlers
Our band, the Gentleman Brawlers, is releasing the upcoming LP, Truth & Magic in March 2020 (full bio below). This has been our baby for a few years now and with the challenges of booking, touring, promotion, ...and our days jobs, we're in need of financial support for the final push towards mixing & mastering. Feel free to check out what we're doing and support us if you like it - thanks!
Gentleman Brawlers, a Brooklyn 6-Piece, are psychedelic Afro-soul revivalists known for their spooky, stylized tunes drenched in analog tape echo and spring reverb. Drawing influences from throwback electronica and acid rock into their funk-based compositions, the ‘Brawlers deliver a live show with plenty of heat, crackling energy, and butt-shaking whomp. While working on the tracks for their next full-length LP (due March 2020), the ‘Brawlers have honed their live show on college campuses and the festival circuit. Notable performances took place at Brooklyn Bowl, Daryl’s House, Princeton University’s storied Terrace F. Club, Bethlehem’s Musikfest, WNYC’s The Greene Space, Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory, and recently an in-studio appearance on WBEZ Chicago (home of NPR’s Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me and This American Life). Adventurous art-pop experimenters by trade, the band recently expanded their lineup and narrowed their focus to create a live music project dedicated to just one of the sonic ventures hinted at on previous recordings—the Lagos-by-way-of-Brooklyn Afrobeat sound of their single My Theory—and began performing in NYC jazz & world music clubs as the Gentleman Brawlers Afrobeat Project.
The band has drawn acclaim in the New York and London music press. They were brought to the attention of the Internet when Veteran BBC music writer Tom Robinson tipped them as a band showing great promise, calling the ‘Brawlers “a virtuoso live band, grooving together like a beautifully engineered machine.” Formed in 2011, the group consists of Becca Fox (vocals/keys), “Chatty Matty” Walsh (vocals/guitar), Jeremy Warren (drums), Trevor Brown (bass), Oskar Stenmark (trumpet), and Xavier Del Castillo (saxophone). Their first single “I Ain’t No Brian Wilson (I Was Made For These Times)” appeared on Occupy This Album, a musical tribute to the Occupy movement. The following year the band dropped an EP, We Were Made For These Times, on the band’s own Brooklyn Fields imprint. Since then, the band has been a stylish presence on the tour and festival circuit and will release their next full length LP in March 2020.
