Keynes Brothers Australia


    Discography 0


    The Keynes Brothers are John Fraser (vocals/guitar) and Rowan Cole (mandolin/guitar/vocals). We’re an Australian acoustic duo drawing inspiration from folk and folk rock, with some blues influence thrown in. The name was inspired partly by John Maynard Keynes, and partly by the Munro brothers because we like bluegrass music. Otherwise we’re not actual brothers, only brothers in time. Our repertoire is mainly originals with some carefully chosen covers. Our lyrics centre on modern life covering topics from social commentary to love and humour. We try to tell stories in a musically interesting way. Sometimes they are semi-autobiographical and sometimes they’re about events outside our lives. Or they’re about nothing much at all except what people see
