We love music of all kinds, but even more importantly we love to acknowledge good people making great music. The Van Lears; Andrew and Trey check the boxes on both fronts. These brothers hail from the mountains of Northwest Georgia and are definitely onto something.
Let me start by saying country music has come a long way. Being from the Pacific Northwest the natural exposure to this genre is quite limited beyond the classics. However, there is some amazing new talent emerging, and the influence now stretches far beyond CMT.
The Van Lears are a great example of this new genre, as they have perfectly dovetailed the traditional aesthetic of country with layers of pure rock. Their single “Matter of Time” ran as the #1 pick on Atlanta’s 94.9 backyard country for 13+ weeks. Currently, Trey and Andrew are working with platinum producer Ted Hewitt (Rodney Atkins) and Billy Decker (Sam Hunt) on recording their debut album. The brothers have also written with other big names such as Steve Bogard, Bob Regan and Josh Osborne.
We have really enjoyed getting to know this group and hope they continue on their path to success. This is a tough business, but these guys are making it and coming up fast. Make sure to check them out:
