[From Facebook] In the summer of 2006 The Sumner Brothers transformed their garage into a recording studio and created In The Garage. The album became an underground sensation, garnering the attention of future collaborator Sam Parton (The Be Good Tanyas) and charting in the top 10 for Folk/Roots/Blues on Canadian College Radio.
With a fired-up fan-base and a sprawling tour schedule, the brothers released their Self Titled Debut in 2008. They created an alt-country gem. Attracting throngs of admirers, the album placed in The Province Newspaper’s 2008 top ten list. ‘Girl in the Window’ won Best Alt-Country Song at the 9th Annual IMA’s and ‘Ticket to Ride’ was included in Music BC’s 2010 compilation.
In 2010, the brothers released a follow-up to In The Garage entitled In The Garage II – Your Last Chance. Like its predecessor, the album digs deep into the Sumner Brothers archives of recorded material. In The Garage II is at times intimate, rowdy, odd and through and through magical. The record was featured in Slowcoustic’s top Canadian records of 2010 and received 4.5 stars from Americanrootsuk.com.
This past fall welcomed the release of the brothers’ latest effort, I’ll Be There Tomorrow. The album reached #17 on the Euro Americana charts; The Georgia Straight called it “a triumph” The Edmonton Sun referred to it as “the finest alt-country north of the 49th parallel.” and Americanarootsuk.com (former Maverick writer) wrote “I wouldn’t be at all surprised if this 5 star album ends up in my top 20 all time”
