Matt and Sam’s Brother is a newly minted project, but for songwriter Charlie Kerr, it represents the culmination of a decade of creativity.
Kerr is known for kicking up a racket as the frontman of Vancouver indie rock outfit JPNSGRLS, but along the way, he gradually accrued a catalogue of solo songs that didn’t fit within the constraints of scrappy, distortion-laced rock and roll. Some of these songs date back to when he was just 16, with others having been written slightly more recently, and for years they existed only as private acoustic demos.
Liberated from the guitar-and-drums setup of a traditional rock band, the recording sessions were an anything-goes journey of sonic experimentation. While some moments nod to Kerr’s background in swaggering, gritty rock, other moments venture into barn-burning alt-country and string-laden piano balladry. This is full-bodied, guitar-driven rock music that’s unconfined by traditional notions of genre, and is equally suited to a raucous party or solitary headphone listening.
“I’m Matt and Sam’s Brother and I’ll always be Matt and Sam’s Brother,” he says. “I could play a concert at 45 years old as Matt and Sam’s Brother and feel completely natural. It’s a constant.”
