Though The Talbott Brothers is currently based in Portland, Oregon, the duo's quiet, heart-stirring Americana sound is veined with the ore of small-town Nebraska. Brothers Nick and Tyler Talbott were born in Imperial, a tiny dot in the Cornhusker State, but took off for the big city in 2012, spurring their musical co-career to greater heights and producing three full-length albums. Known for what they've styled as their "blood harmonies," the Talbott brothers tell stories in song, twining their voices together against the backdrop of acoustic guitar. The duo's third and most recent album, Gray (self-released, 2017), is folk music at its most graceful, by turns hopeful and melancholy. Catch the pair at Boise's Alive After Five on Wednesday, Aug. 8, to hear a piece of the heartland for yourself.
