THE MOBROS are Kelly & Patrick Morris. The name, “THE MOBROS” simply stands for “Morris Brothers.” But while the chosen name for this electric songwriting duo may be simple, their songs are not so simplistic. Growing up in rural South Carolina the brothers’ learned to draw from their surroundings, blending the sounds of Soul, Rock & Roll, and Americana.
Their music is both decidedly dark, and yet light in nature. What is immediately gripping about the brotherly music is their flourishing harmonies, their melodic layers stacked seemingly effortlessly, and their intriguing style of lyricism. From early on Kelly and Patrick loved to sing. For fun they would often record themselves on an old tape recorder that they shared emulating their favorite artists and gradually leading them to record their own original music. By listening to performers like The Everly Brothers, Andy Williams, Michael Jackson, THE BAND, Sam Cooke, and the Bee Gees; The Mobros discovered their fondness for vocal harmonies.
In 2013 they were hand-picked by the Blues legend B.B. King, to be the touring opener for a few of his Southeastern Summer tour dates, and shortly after that they released their debut album Walking With A Different Stride.
You can catch them at Midpoint Music Festival on Sunday, September 25th!
