Little Brother Eli

Venue: Main Stage

Genre: 
Rock-n-Roll
Blues

Little Brother Eli combine the blues with hip hop rhythms to give you ‘the feeling that every single second has been filled with crafted perfection’ (Right Chord Music), but even this kind of juxtapositional statement doesn’t quite cover it. With a sound that brings Jack White or the Black Keys to mind, Little Brother Eli take powerful vocals, growling guitars and gritty solos to create their own twist on bluesy garage rock.

The band was formed in Oxford during early 2013 by bassist Josh Rigal and vocalist Alex Grew. The pair were joined by guitarist Adam Stowe and drummer Benji Page who began sharing their eclectic mix of musical influences.

This quote from their website explains them a bit: "Sharp, fun and loud, Little Brother Eli do not believe in doing things by half. Their music is a perfect fusion of rock & roll, blues, garage and soul – with a bit of hip hop thrown in for good measure." Tim Hughes - The Oxford Times They do almost exclusively original songs, and are absolutely fantastic live. They're playing the O2 Academy in May (BBC Uprising).
