Gunther Brown is a six piece Americana rock band from Portland, Maine.
Gunther Brown introduced themselves to the world with Good Nights for Daydreams. Released in January, 2014, Good Nights for Daydreams was Gunther Brown’s full length debut and received only great reviews, both in the band’s hometown and internationally.
The Portland Phoenix said, “The guys in Gunther Brown can lay on the biting spite pretty thick, but they also embrace pure emotion. With Gunther Brown’s debut full-length, frontman Pete Dubuc and crew have created the most sorrowful local record since Ray Lamontagne’s Till the Sun Turns Black.” AmericanaUK added, “Gunther Brown’s debut album is forty minutes of resignation and despair set to one of the most mournful soundtracks you’re likely to hear this year or any other. Leader and songwriter Pete Dubuc is a master of despondency.”
In early 2016, Gunther Brown released, North Wind, a new 10 song album, on vinyl, CD and digital formats. The album was released in Europe on CRS in the spring. Reviews of North Wind heaped praise on the band with statements like, “one of your great Americana promises for 2016.” and “‘North Wind’ is many things at once: tender, fierce, thought-provoking, powerful and even fun. Could lavish praise on every track … this band is really onto something.”
After a European tour in 2017 the band took an extended break and the lineup underwent some changes before releasing New Man as a single in December 2018. Work is underway on a new full length album expected to be released in early 2020.
