After pursuing separate careers, they formed The Bros. Landreth, releasing their first album Let it Lie in 2013. This album was inspired by country-rock, Ry Cooder’s electric instrumentals, and Lyle Lovett’s tracks.
Their debut album Let It Lie won them the JUNO Award for “Roots & Traditional Album of the Year – Group” at the 2015 JUNO Awards. In 2022, The Bros. Landreth released a new album Come Morning, which is a blend of North American roots music and soul. This album is the band’s most immersive and emotional work featuring melodic songs layered with atmospheric synth, organ, and textured guitar.

The Bros. Landreth recently received recognition in February 2023 when the prestigious singer-songwriter Bonnie Raitt at the Grammy Awards pre-broadcast ceremony received the award for Best American Performance for the song Made Up Mind written by The Bros. Landreth and Jonathan Singleton. During her speech, she thanked the two brothers , saying “I want to thank The Bros. Landreth for writing this kick-ass song.
