The Powell Brothers
The Powell Brothers
The Powell Brothers are Country/Americana recording artists from Houston, Texas.

The group is fronted by brothers Taylor Powell and Blake Powell. This past February, The Powell Brothers released “Leave On The Light,” their first full length CD. The new music combines elements of folk-rock, rootsy soul and country. The Houston-based band recorded “Leave On The Light” during the aftermath and devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Perseverance, resilience and life on the road provide the backdrop for this new collection of songs that staggers artfully between timeless arrangements and sharp songcraft showcasing a defiant, evolving band on the rise. Taylor Powell had this to say about the new record:

“Hurricane Harvey definitely changed a lot of things for us,” explains Taylor Powell. “The plans we had been making for the previous few months were completely wiped out. As we were tearing down our childhood home, there were definitely many moments of despair. But as they say, when you are going through hell, keep on going. Looking back, it actually wiped the slate clean, and gave us an opportunity to do something much greater than we had planned before. We decided to use this as a sign that it was time to make the record we had always wanted to make.”

The Powell Brothers’ music really comes to life in their high energy live show. The group defines the term “road warriors,” burning up U.S. highways with an average of 150 shows per year. The 2019 tour schedule takes the group to Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Kentucky, Indiana and Wisconsin. Notable tour dates include June 5th at The Tin Roof (Nashville, TN) for the CMA Kick-Off Party, July 6th at Luckenbach (Fredericksburg, TX) with Pat Green & Cory Morrow, August 1st at the Dejoria Center (Park City, UT), and September 28th at the Merchants & Music Festival (Fort Thomas, KY).

The Powell Brothers have been selected to support numerous top national acts, including sharing the stage with names like Lee Brice, Billy Currington, Josh Turner, Gary Allan, Granger Smith, Eli Young Band, Montgomery Gentry, Mark Chesnutt, Tracy Byrd, Suzy Bogguss, The Bellamy Brothers, Pat Green, Cody Johnson, Randy Rogers Band, Jack Ingram and many more.

When asked about The Powell Brothers’ explosive growth and what the future holds, Taylor Powell explained "It all boils down to this; good songs and good people. We are committed to the craft of songwriting. Our goal is to make every song and every album better than the last, and to surround ourselves with the best people.” Blake Powell echoes his brother’s thoughts and added “Our goal is to deliver recorded music and live performances worthy of the love and support we are so blessed to receive."
