Old Bricks

Old Bricks came into being in the midst of transition. Though the group's two releases come from separate aesthetic approaches--2010's Farmers features sparse, quivering, melancholic-folk while 2011's City Lights broods with hazy melodic swells and rhythmic intensity--both embody these formative characteristics.

Founding members Stuart Edwards and Andy Holmes grew up together in Rocky Mount, NC, and reunited in Nashville, TN to pursue music.  Ennui, a death and a bout with homelessness lead them back to NC, with a stockpile of material Edwards had written. The catharsis proved fertile.

The band evolved, exploring instrumentation, dynamics, and experimenting with sound and song structure. Adding members for their live performances, these mutations were incorporated, and the facets that brought about the genesis of the band have matured to reflect how change can augment experience, and how moving forward can create space to flourish. Old Bricks might best suggest that transformation not only will, but should occur.
