The Belle Brigade

I first caught the sun-kissed stylings of The Belle Brigade live way back in 2010 when they opened up for Fitz and The Tantrums and AWOLNATION at El Rey Theatre. (How’s that for a lineup, eh?) Roughly six months after that show, the sibling duo of Barbara and Ethan Gruska released a debut album that was hailed as one of PASTE’s best of the year, and this past March, they followed up that release with their sophomore effort, Just Because.

The Belle Brigade will soon join Ray LaMontagne on tour as both support and as part of Ray’s backing band, but before heading out on the road, the duo made time to film an episode for the popular online video series Balcony TV. Each episode of the series features an independent musician or band performing a song (often acoustically) in a single take on a balcony, and LA Music Blog is very excited to be able to premiere The Belle Brigade’s Balcony TV performance of “Ashes,” the first single off Just Because. Check it out below!
