The Portland Press Herald listed Gunther Brown as one of the ‘ten bands to watch’ . In doing so, Bob Keyes said …
“Gunther Brown’s music is earthy, eloquent and entirely honest. The band from Portland reminds one of early Jayhawks, with maybe a touch of Wilco. It’s Americana music, with roots that spread to folk, rock and old-time country.”
“This is a new band with chops to watch.” says The Portland Phoenix. Since forming in the summer of 2008, Gunther Brown has established itself as a band on the rise. The Portland Press Herald says, “Dubuc’s rough and raspy vocals are terrific … “. With an EP (Eustis Ridge) released in April 2009, Gunther Brown plays original music that ranges from “downright singer/songwritery” (The Phoenix) to “hand-clapping, countrified rock” (Press Herald).
From Portland, Maine, Gunther Brown plays music that is solidly Americana and borrows from folk, rock and old time country. The band’s hooks are infectious; poppy enough to get you singing along with enough soul to make it worth another listen.
