ABOUT COREY MEDINA AND BROTHERS
Corey Medina and Brothers is a Blues-Rock band from Northern Minnesota led by Diné Corey Medina of Shiprock, NM. Shiprock is on the Navajo Tribal Nation where Corey was born and raised. He moved to Northern Minnesota in 2012 and collaborated with Incepticons Entertainment. Through Incepticons Entertainment Corey released his debut album "Old Dog Crying" in May of 2015, produced by Garlic Brown Beats. Corey now plays, writes and produces with the Incepticons team full time and also travels with his band known as "The Brothers", hence Corey Medina & Brothers. Corey refers to the Brothers as a representation of the relationship he likes to keep with his fellow band mates. Currently the Brothers band consist of Eric Sundeen of Bemidji, MN on Drums and Gary Broste also from Bemidji, on upright bass. After 3 years of talking about a full length studio album, in 2019 Corey and The Brothers released their debut full length album, "Better Days". They set out to spread light to dark, and hope to the hopeless with their raw, soulful, intimate music and stage presence.
ABOUT BRUCE ARCHER
Bruce plays a rollicking combination of blues, bluegrass, country, and folk that doesn’t fit tidily into a single genre. His finger-picking and slide guitar display a level of talent and mastery that can only come from 40-plus years of sifting through musical styles and keeping the bits that resonate with him while merging his Iowa roots and his years in the Minneapolis alt-rock scene. He coaxes from his guitars an instrumental voice that is authentically his own.
