The Write Brothers could be considered a songwriter supergroup. Comprised of some of NOLA’s best and brightest songwriters, the group combines the creative talent of four individuals with remarkably different backgrounds.
Spencer Bohren spent a portion of his career playing with bands focusing on everything from rock to country. Bohren relocated to The Big Easy in the mid-‘70s. With more than 16 albums in his repertoire, he has stayed busy recently touring across the U.S. and Europe.
Jim McCormick is one of modern country’s busiest songwriters. McCormick has penned songs for country notables including Jamey Johnson and Ronnie Milsap. His songs “Take a Little Ride” (Jason Aldean) and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do” (Brantley Gilbert) reached top spots on country music charts.
Many may recognize Alex McMurray from his appearance on HBO’s “Treme.” The seasoned NOLA native has worked with musical projects ranging from 007 to Johnny Sansone.
Paul Sanchez completes the lineup. In 2010, he won Songwriter of the Year in the “Best of the Beat” awards by OffBeat Magazine. Darius Rucker, Irma Thomas and the Eli Young Band have all employed his songwriting talents.
The Write Brothers will be playing cuts from their debut album “First Flight.” Their sound is truly a culmination of each member’s musical background, with each track echoing sounds from the backwoods to The Marigny.
