Brushfire is music -- timeless, evocative, tortured, reflective, starry-eyed, intense, and everything in between. Haunting vocals and weighty prose dance like smoke across the still night air with shimmering guitars offering an impressionistic glimpse into the worlds from whence they came. Theirs is a hopeful yet weathered and often twisted waltz of the human variety ready to carry you to a place where the nightmares sit with the four leaf clovers - always just a little out of reach.
Their debut EP Paper Castles was released on November 14, 2012.
  • Conceptual photo shoot with Rosie Hardy

    This past Monday, we adventured out into October in Western Connecticut with THE Rosie Hardy as our photographer (Hands All Over -  Maroon 5 album cover). The weather was gorgeous as we got to work hiking into the woods to find the perfect locations for our conceptual photo shoot. The finished images will be used in connection with our upcoming releases, which most likely include a couple singles and OUR FIRST FULL LENGTH ALBUM. We are beyond psyched about everything we are working on right now and we’ll continue to update the online world with our current projects and videos and so on as they continue. We may even release some snippets and/or demos before the final releases…Anyway, we found a hollowed out turtle shell in one of our locations and named it Tortellini. We also learned through this that there are no turtles in the UK!! …you learn something new every day! These following images were taken by my lovely sister, Keileigh who was our photo documenter, make-up artist, fashion consultant, and on-site nanny for the day :) Enjoy! Can’t wait to have the final images to share!!

  • This is our second installment of “the SLEEPLESS NIGHTS sessions” on our youtube channel in which we perform covers and originals in the middle of the night while our children sleep and we…well…DON’T ;) 

    The first video was a cover of John Legends “All of Me”. For those of you that missed it - it can be watched here: http://youtu.be/UQT2zwY43-o

    We chose a Fleetwood Mac classic for our most recent video and chose to play all the instruments to accompany our live performance. So, along with the vocals and acoustic guitar you see in the video, Kyle and I also played the bass and drums and even added some extra harmonies to give it that ‘fleetwood mac’ feel that is so iconic especially in this song. It’s just not the same without that groove! 

    In other Brushfire news, we have a very exciting photo shoot approaching in which we’ll be creating the artwork for our new collection of songs (which we’re psyched about). It’s going to be something a bit different than the Paper Castles EP and will represent our growth and change in the time since then (can’t believe that was 2 years ago!!!). We’ll be recording demos of all the songs we’re considering for our first full length album and most likely sneaking you guys some previews along the way (hopefully without ‘singing’ from our 10 month old in the background! haha). So stay tuned, because Brushfire is back from their hiatus and getting things done :)
