The Hoyle Brothers News & Views

Now, here's a taste of the real country buzz The Hoyle Brothers have been generating:

December 2009

December 30, 2009

A Chicago blogger has some kind words to say about The Hoyle Brothers as he wraps up his favorites from 2009…

Best Live Music Show:
The Hoyle Brothers – True honky tonk country. Covers and originals. They play Happy Hour every Friday at the Empty Bottle from 5:30 – 7:30. I always being my Texas friends and they always give a seal of approval. And you can request songs they don’t play and they’ll give it a go. “Streets of Bakerfields” for example. Twice. Nice guys too.

December 7, 2009

Rock for Kids and The Hoyle Brothers have teamed up to promote music education among Chicago’s underserved children with the release of The Hoyle Brothers’ “Home For The Holidays” EP.

“We’re delighted to partner with The Hoyle Brothers and raise funds for our music education program,” says Maria Mowbray, Executive Director of Rock For Kids, a non-profit that provides free, year-round music education for children in need. “This partnership will help us meet our goal of expanding our music education offerings in 2010 and beyond.”

Through the partnership, The Hoyle Brothers will donate 75 percent of the proceeds from online downloads of “Home For The Holidays” songs to Rock For Kids through December 31, 2009. The donation amounts to 53 cents for individual tracks (75 percent of the 70 cents the band receives. The remaining portion goes to online distributor, CD Baby, for hosting expenses). The three-song holiday EP is available for downloads at CD Baby.

“We try to do something every year to show our appreciation for the ongoing support Chicago gives The Hoyle Brothers,” says Trevor McSpadden, lead singer for the band. “Rock For Kids is a perfect fit. The organization promotes music as a source of lifelong inspiration and fun, just as it’s been for all of us.”

December 1, 2009

A couple of months back, The Hoyle Brothers recorded a few holiday-themed tunes in preparation for this Christmas season.  We tracked a snappy little shuffle of Stevie’s called “The Only Thing I Want For Christmas.”  Once we heard the playback, we knew it was a sure-fire winner.  The song has gone on to become a finalist in the Chicago Tribune’s “New Holiday Classics” contest.  So hit the Tribune’s website and vote for us!  We are #8 on the ballot.  Make sure to give the tune a listen through the YouTube video on their page.  It’s a sweet little song and we hope you dig it.  If you’re so inclined, please spread the word!
