The Teskey Brothers
About The Teskey Brothers
The Australian blues-rock band The Teskey Brothers started out busking as teens and established themselves as a live act before breaking out internationally with their 2017 debut album.
• Formed in 2008, The Teskey Brothers feature siblings John (guitar, vocals) and Sam (lead guitar) Teskey. They’ve been jamming since their teens with the group’s other two members, Brendon Love (bass) and Liam Gough (drums).
• After a stint as the backing group for singer Ella Thompson, the band hit their home studio outside of Melbourne to record the album Half Mile Harvest, an independent hit with an old-school, homegrown feel. The LP went Top 20 on the Australian charts
• The Teskey Brothers signed to Glassnote Records for their second album, 2019’s Run Home Slow, a continuation of their retro Southern soul and blues sound. This time, they reached No. 2 on the Australian charts.
• Their 2020 album Live at the Forum features analog tape recordings from their sold-out four-night stint at the Forum in Melbourne. The album earned a Grammy nomination for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.
