A common love of American roots music and a desire to make a living as songwriting musicians brought brothers Teague and Ian together to form Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank in 2005.
Like the traveling workers, or ‘Hobos’ of the depression era, the Alexy brothers use travel as means of making a better living for themselves. They have recorded 5 full length albums and performed over a thousand shows covering 42 of the lower 48 United States.
“Touring all around this country has made us better musicians and sharpened our instincts playing together,” says Teague Alexy. “We’ve been able to see the country, meet the people. We’ve played rich man’s weddings and poor man’s barbecues. We took our Jersey chidhoods, wrote some backwoods Minnesota blues and took it down south and all around to be sure we had it right. And, along the way, we became American writers.”
The Hobo Nephew’s sound has been a part of the Upper Midwest’s American roots music resurgance for the past decade. Their blend of folk, rhythm and blues, and rock and roll is uniquely their own, and celebrated by an ever growing grassroots fan base.
