The Americana roots rock band brother truckers’s first 3 albums were released on what was widely considered the seminal, Iowa Independent record label, Trailer Records. Based out of Iowa City, Trailer Records featured the very best of what was nationally coined as “The Iowa Sound.” Label-mates included such luminous names as the Grammy nominated Greg Brown & Bo Ramsey, blues legend Joe Price, Dave Zollo, Bejae Fleming, Peita Brown and High & Lonesome.
Brother Trucker has toured the Midwest extensively since 2000, playing festivals, bars, political rallies, coffee houses, private parties large and small and a myriad of benefits and causes. They have opened for such notable names as James McMurtry, Leon Russell, Al Green, Gurf Morlix, Greg Brown, Robert Earl Keene and the Rev. Horton Heat. In 2009, Brother Trucker scored the original music for the award winning independent film, by Rod McCall “Becoming Eduardo.”
