Atlanta‐based blues rock quartet, Brother Hawk, announce the release of Big Medicine and head out on a summer tour. Engineered by T.J. Elias at The Quarry in Kennesaw, GA, mastered by Billy Joe Bowers (Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, and Blackberry Smoke), the group’s album delivers “a heartfelt slab of emotionally charged blues rock.” (Creative Loafing) JB Brisendine (vocals/guitar), Nick Johns (keys/vocals), James Fedigan (bass) and Allan Carson (drums) joined together as Brother Hawk in early 2010. Fusing their love for classic to contemporary rock artists, like Neil Young, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Allman Brothers, Soundgarden and The Black Crowes, the band hit the ground running.
The four piece dropped their Love Songs EP in June 2011, EP Affairs of Plain Living EP in November 2012 and released a live in‐studio session on YouTube called “Live from Pack Life Recording” in December 2013. In 2014 they began to venture out of town more regularly to build a following in the southeast and founded their own festival in Atlanta called “Brother Hawk’s Big Medicine Festival.” The band have since toured the US with Blackberry Smoke and appeared on Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man Cruise” and the Joe Bonamassa’s “Keeping the Blues Alive Cruise.”
