Album Notes
Brandon Turner and Joe Littell met by chance in 1998 at a guitar show in Spartanburg, South Carolina. From that first impromptu jam session they knew that their blend of acoustic guitar and dobro was something different, something that would set them apart from the countless other duo acts in the city.

Brandon and Joe performed their first show together in Spartanburg about a month after that meeting. Performing the traditional "Piedmont Blues" native to their birthplace, as well as original music from other genres, Brandon and Joe quickly became local favorites around upstate South Carolina and beyond.

In 2003 the duo became known as "The Catfish Brothers", and released there self-titled debut CD in January 2006.

Album Review

"Take two Southern boys with a passion for unadulterated acoustic music, a fresh approach to old-time blues and toe-tappin' bluegrass and 10 pairs of fingers too supple to be believed, and you have the Catfish Brothers. The powerful vocals complement the masterful string wizardry, too. Brandon Turner sounds a bit like John Hammond (among the best white blues singers out there), while Joe Littell haunts with his growling, Tom Waits-ish voice. Together, the vocal duet is compelling enough, and when you add the brilliant picking on top of that, you just want to catch this Catfish and call it a keeper."

Brandon Turner has magic fingers, and an uncanny talent for capturing the essence of the music. He has the only good spam.

Great guitar work here....
I heard the Spam Song on local WGWG radio 88.3 and had to have it. A great CD. They have great talent. I look forward to hearing more from the Catfish Brothers.
