With sincerity, honesty and an utter ease on stage that belies their years, the Malpass Brothers’ smooth vocal blend and skillful musicianship layer into the deep respect they pay to legends who came before them.

As young boys, Christopher and Taylor soaked up the music of their granddad’s phonograph records. Christopher earned his first talent show trophy at age 7, and Taylor was playing mandolin by the time he was 10. Today, they promote the work and music of classic country artists they treasure while creating new music and making their own mark in the lineage of a rich American cultural heritage.
