    The Lubben Brothers

    Triplets and high-energy acoustic musicians from the farmlands of Iowa, The Lubben Brothers have made a name for themselves through tight vocal harmonies, penetrating songwriting, and the eclectic swath of folk instruments they cycle through on stage. Diving into classical music at a young age, their songwriting style merges their folk roots with complex pop ideas.

    The Brothers have soloed at venues ranging from South Florida's Meyer Amphitheater and Broward Center for the Performing Arts, to The Gardens Hockey Arena of Northern Minnesota. Their music has aired on radio stations across the United States, while they have developed a committed, grassroots following in their current state of Florida; as one reviewer put it: "The Lubben Brothers are to Florida as the Lumineers are to Denver, Colorado'' (Maritza Cosano, West Palm Beach Magazine). Music by The Lubben Brothers was chosen as an encore for NPR’s “Live from Here” with Chris Thile, and featured in Netflix’s premiere film of the 2021 Christmas season, “Love Hard.” Their latest album, 'Bout Time, premiered this January. Composers as well as musicians, The Lubben Brothers have written and performed in multiple musicals, and actively record, write, and release new music when not performing on the road.
