Ill New You
In Cleveland we have a form of music that we affectionately called Rust-Belt Rock and Roll. It's less of a genre and more of an attitude. It's rock and roll music that's low on fashion and filler and big on volume. We live in a region that is gritty, hard-working, and honest. In Cleveland there's a level of pride in being down, but not out and fighting with every last breathe to succeed. Here in Cleveland, we also have this band that perfectly embodies the sentiments of Rust-Belt Rock, The Suede Brothers. Originally a duo that blasted blues based jams out of a barn in Perry, Ohio, The Suede Brothers initially made their mark on the Cleveland music scene as the upstart Cleveland quartet known as The Black Diamonds. The Suede Brothers morphed into existence in the spring of 2007 as a three piece picking up where The Black Diamonds left off. Listening to The Suede Brothers, you'll hear elements of old time blues music as well as large riffs and bombastic drums that date back to the hard charging Seventies. Though their influences reach back to a bygone era, they're not throwbacks to better days. The fire and the passion of their Rust Belt Rock and Roll takes their sound right into modern times.
