THE STORY SO FAR..........

Here in this world.........

Two men, in 2013, heads swimming from foreign land adventures, burned up n washed out, took refuge in Ma Watsons basement and got to writing and recording tunes from the heart. 

Ideas flowed like the vodka drunk. A parallel universe formed where they escaped into the adventures of Eli Cutter. This is a tale about a man consumed by loss of his kin, a man whose home was taken by the flood, a man pursued by the demon Bad Penny.  Here the Abandoned Brothers built a musical landscape where their own reality became entwined with the spirit of this elusive ghost. 

As the landscape expanded, the song writing became all-consuming.

The next 3 yrs. were prolific, over 80 pieces of music were written and out of the concept the "Adventures of Eli" became a trilogy. 

Frustration set in with the need to perform to an audience receptive to original music that was hard to pigeonhole. For this other musicians needed to be found, musicians who would play with imagination, embody the spirit of creative endeavour, and also to enjoy the long ride..  And after many trials the line up settled. The Brothers became a band.

We invite you to close your eyes, put your head back and enjoy the sonic tapestries of a world where everything you hear is not always what it seems.

Take my hand, there's a storm brewing....

 Deep in the Mississippi Delta 

  A 100 miles  to the river 

 A man drags his body down a sun scorched Road

 Carrying wounds in his soul  that run deep

A long way from the life he knew

On a journey that will take him to the Bad Penny riverboat

 Where revenge and a longing for reunion

Drives him across this desolate wasteland

Destiny waits
