While you may not be familiar with Fifth and Main yet, you soon will be. Twin brothers Beau and Brady alongside older brother Jack assembled their band “Fifth and Main” about two years ago and really started taking music seriously since that time. Beau who is 20 years old is the bass player, Brady is 20 years old, is their guitarist, and Jack who is 22 years old also plays the guitar. The trio all do the vocals for their songs as well. We had the pleasure of sitting down with the band before they opened for Lord Huron in Detroit, we talked about who influences them, their dream collaboration, and what to expect from them in the future.
When asked to describe their music, all three agreed that their style is folk rock meets somewhere in between Kings of Leon and Mumford and Sons, those two bands being their musical influences as well. Jack also added they listen to a lot of Ryan Adams, and a lot of Colony House just to name a few who influence them as well. The list of artists the band said they wanted to work with could go on for days, a few names that were dropped were as follows; Kevin Garret, Marcus Mumford, Carrie Underwood, along with any of the girls from Little Big Town. As for writing the brothers all agreed on Taylor Swift.
Music comes first for the brothers. “We have been making music practically our whole lives, our grandpa was in a country band so we’ve been doing it for a while,” Jack answered when asked how long the trio has been making music. Knowing it has been something they’ve always wanted to do, the band feels as though it comes naturally to them. “Since the day I picked up a guitar I just felt like I wanted to be a musician,” answered Brady when asked if music was something they’ve always perused. The guys also referenced how they watched the Jonas Brothers at a young age and it had an effect on them, as well as their cousin Ryan who used to play guitar. “We use to think he was the coolest person in the world so we kind of wanted to fill his shoes.”
Any band can tell you performing is the best thing ever. The guys in Fifth and Main thought the same. They described how awesome the energy feels while being on stage along with the energy from the crowd. “I really like when our music connects with people and you can see it in their faces and their emotion.” Beau said when talking about performing.
“We listen to a lot of what we try to emulate so a lot of Americana and southern rock, stuff like that.” Oldest brother Jack answered for the band when asked what their favorite genre of music was. We also asked some of their favorite bands, which were as follows; Ryan Adams and Michigander.
We can confidently say that we think Fifth and Main are the next big thing, they stay original and create sounds that are unlike any other you’d hear today. We truly think Fifth and Main is exactly what the music industry needs right now. They’re all very humble and down to Earth guys and we are so thankful to have had the opportunity to sit down and chat with them about their music.
