The Felice Brothers: 2016

From recording in a converted chicken coop, an old high school and most recently in a cinder block garage, The Felice Brothers’ DIY ethos and approach has always been driven by their practical needs. They happily use what’s readily available to create. In a time when craft-made and homespun are in fashion, those traits are refreshingly genuine in this band whose members grew up, live, and record in the rural Hudson Valley.
The new album, Life In the Dark, is their twelfth. As a follow-up to their last collection — a rare out-of-town, recording studio experience — it is clear that The Felice Brothers have returned to their roots, embracing their DIY abilities more than ever as they celebrate a decade as a band.
