The Christopher Brothers - Meet The Christopher Brothers
It is always refreshing to see young musicians playing instruments and writing their own songs. Southern California’s The Christopher Brothers can easily be compared to Hanson or The Jonas Brothers, but there is something different about these three shaggy haired siblings. 15-year-old Cameron (drums), 13-year-old Charles (lead guitars), and 10-year-old Ethan (bass) each began playing a variety of instruments at a young age and finally started playing as a trio in 2008. Beyond playing various covers by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Santana, and Green Day, The Christopher Brothers also perform several original tracks.
Their first EP, Meet The Christopher Brothers, has already caught the attention of several teenage girls in the California area. The brothers have an edgier sound than the standard “American pop band consisting of 3 brothers” stereotype. Charles takes the role as the lead vocalist; however Cameron and Ethan do share vocals throughout the EP.
“Just Another Day” tackles the typical preteen and teenage battle of going to school. The lyrics fit accordingly to their age and the target audience, so do not judge the band based on this song alone. Teenagers will definitely relate. “What If” is a great example of that punk rock love song that will separate them from similar pop acts. “What if the sky was painted brown/ What if the world wasn’t round...What if you loved me” – c’mon, how can you not sing along after listening to this? “Girl You Know I Care” is an energetic love song that Charles wrote. The addition of the piano shows the versatility of the band. Included in the EP is the cover of “Imagine” by John Lennon. The trio did a great job adding in their own touches to the tune.
Meet The Christopher Brothers is a great introduction to this talented, wholesome, group of brothers. If they keep at it, The Christopher Brothers will eventually be a household name. Check out their YouTube Channel for live performances, additional covers and music videos.
