When: Fri., Jan. 8, 8 p.m. 2016
Siblings have a long history of creating musical magic together in bands ranging from the Kinks to Nickel Creek, and a little of that alchemy is at play with Spokane folk-rockers Bristol. With primary songwriter Curran Long up front singing and playing acoustic guitar and his brother Riley behind the drums, the quartet that also includes bassist Sean Tyson and guitarist Kris Mayhew is set to release an EP recorded over the course of 2014. The long wait was due to both twins getting hitched and some jobs that briefly took the members of Bristol away from the band. The sound? Heartfelt ballads and anthemic rockers, led by Curran’s acoustic and some sweet harmonies from the other boys in the band.
