Original song by Sean Blake about growing up in Long Beach back in the day that we recorded while hanging out in the woodshed aka Ted’s garage!

Brother Pines is the result of four guys rooted in the city playing good time music with good folks from Long Beach, CA. Singing & pickin’ along to classic bluegrass, country & folk songs comes natural to Sean, Steve, Ted, & Shea, but don’t be surprised to hear original tunes that fit in so well you would think they were plucked straight from the Appalachia’s! Sean Blake – Guitar & Vocals | Steve Hartnell – Mandolin & Vocals | Ted Smith – Banjo, Doboro & Vocals | Shea Newkirk – Bass & Vocals
