Their music has been described as foot stompin, rockin, rustic roots, country, folk and blues. They are The Sumner Brothers. Having burned up nearly every room and concert hall in British Columbia, the brothers have created a legion of fans and a reputation that exceeds their native province. Their original songs have them being lauded as being “in the upper echelon of Vancouver song writers.” Their show mixes brotherly charm, amazing homegrown gospel/roots/alt-country/folk songs, and a delivery that calls to mind a young Elvis and Cash.



“The Sumner Brothers are, in my opinion, the most talented band Vancouver (if not Canada) has seen in a long time. Their sound is so pure, so honest, and so good. Seeing them live is a revelation; listening to their recordings is a profound experience. What they have to offer is more than entertainment-it’s medicine.” “They are my new favorite band.”

Sam Parton
The Be Good Tanyas



“Their music is about light, though it is not afraid to explore the dark. Their music is about hope, but it does not ignore despair. It’s a mournful Johnny Cash, a repentant Willie Nelson, a reflective Stompin Tom. It’s the power of boozy sincerity and hopped-up honesty, and that, brothers and sisters, I can get behind.”
