“On December 10th, 1999 at 7:30 PM in Santa Cruz, California, the bassist for Kaelber, Tabor McLeod, was born. Two hours later and 2,700 miles away in Morgantown, WV, lead guitarist/lead singer for Kaelber, Noah Myers, was born.

“At the core of Brother From Another Mother is the Dyjamic Duo of Dave Hamilton and Dennis Malley. Each of them singer-songwriters in their own right, they discovered a musical chemistry that necessitated the forming of the BFAM collective. BFAM uses the written song as a launch vehicle into the magical improvised moments that are not duplicated from
