Consisting of Erik Voeks and David George, Volker Brothers are an acoustic duo that share lead vocals and background harmonies influenced by and often compared to the likes of The Everly Brothers and Simon & Garfunkel.
However, their roots are spread out over many influences from Tom Petty, and Elvis Costello to Crowded House, and The Beatles. Both have toured the U.S. and Europe. George recently toured with John Fogerty.
Voeks and George first started playing together when one would fill in with the other’s band. Whether it was Erik playing bass and singing backup in David George & A Crooked Mile or David playing guitar and singing backup in Erik Voeks & The Vague Lakes, the two realized they had a musicality in common. Stripping the band back to just the two of them on acoustic guitars enabled them to do a weeks worth of shows in Seattle. They began performing intimate shows around Kansas City, including house concerts and private events, and spreading the word on their melody driven, harmony enriched, acoustic based music. It’s not pop and it’s not folk, but a blend of the two.
