John was interviewed on Reeling In The Years with John Dearing on ConnectFM on Tuesday 7th February.
Here is the audio clip featuring 3 of their songs and a discussion of them.
The Keynes Brothers are John Fraser (vocals/guitar) and Rowan Cole (mandolin/guitar/vocals). We’re an Australian acoustic duo drawing inspiration from folk and folk rock, with some blues influence thrown in. The name was inspired partly by John Maynard Keynes, as we like discarded economic theories, and the Munro brothers because we like bluegrass music. Otherwise we’re not actual brothers, only brothers in time.
Our repertoire is mainly originals with some carefully chosen covers. Our lyrics centre on modern life covering topics from social commentary to love and humour. We try to tell stories in a musically interesting way. Sometimes they are semi-autobiographical and sometimes they’re about events outside our lives. Or they’re about nothing much at all except what people see
We will slowly add songs as we record them but this is happening on a typical musician’s budget. For now these songs are it. Come from time to time and there might be more.
