Brother Hawk Release video for “Safe Passage” from upcoming new album on Amigo The Devil’s label
Atlanta Southern Rock Outfit Brother Hawk’s Release Video For “Safe Passage” Offering A Guiding Light Through Dark Times
After a quick run of dates supporting labelmate Amigo The Devil, Atlanta rock four-piece Brother Hawk have released their new single “Safe Passage” online at https://youtu.be/LU9FlP32C2g. The song is the second single from their upcoming new album The Dreamer which will surface on March 31st, 2023 through Liars Club. “Safe Passage” sees the band finding solace in music as they deal with heartache and grief. The song is an ode and tribute to Brother Hawk’s Joseph Brisendine, who passed away in 2017 and who the band’s new album is titled after.
“The song is about trying to find myself and my way out of depression after my father passed,” said Brother Hawk guitarist/singer JB Brisendine. “This is a really special song for me because it’s the first time I’m handling harmonica duties on a song instead of my dad. I know he’d shit if he heard it and it makes me smile so big every time I think of that.”
The Dreamer was recorded with producer Tom Tapley (Blackberry Smoke, Mastodon) at West End Sound in Atlanta, GA and channels all of the band’s unique influences into one complex tapestry of raging Southern blues-rock riffs, epic-sounding organ, and soulful vocals that give you goose-bumps.
At its core Brother Hawk is a family. Sitting at the head of the table is guitarist/singer JB Brisendine with his right-hand keyboardist/singer Nick Johns-Cooper beside him. The two met in elementary school, bonding over music and becoming lifelong friends ever since. Bassist James Fedigan joined the Brother Hawk family after playing with Brisendine in hardcore bands, forming a friendship and musical bond. Brother Hawk started as a way for the members to play without musical limitations, no preconceived genre, and just let the music channel through them like a vessel. Brother Hawk burst onto the scene with their debut EP Love Songs, which drew critical acclaim for their brand of Southern blues-rock with raging riffs and huge hooks. Playing shows with fellow Atlanta outfit Blackberry Smoke helped them earn a devoted core following, as they continued to win over massive audiences playing Atlanta’s infamous Tabernacle and Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium.
