A Record For Our Time: Write Brothers’ Testament To Spencer Bohren

Sunday, Jul 26, 2020
by | Offbeat Magazine

Spencer Bohren came from the open sky and the cold hard realities of prairie fundamentalism.

His early life was a routine of relentless sun, strong winds, drenching rains and miracle springs after dusky winters that froze your soul. Surrounded by God’s creation and the abundance of nature, he grew within a discipline meant to keep the darkness outside of the campfire’s glow at bay. But Spencer was always attracted to the mysterious shadows beyond the safety of the firelight, compelled to plumb their secrets. Maybe that’s why he became one of America’s premier storytellers, a soul whose...

Names like Fats Domino, Dave Bartholomew, Allen Toussaint, Earl King, and Dr. John a.k.a. Mac Rebennack come to mind when talking about hit songs emanating from New Orleans. Over the past few years, however, the biggest hits from a Big Easy songwriter have come from the pen of Jim McCormick.

When I first heard of this project, I wondered if it would ever happen! Getting some of the best songwriters and musicians in New Orleans to record an album together, putting their talents on tracks and their egos on the side, would be no easy feat. But Spencer Bohren, Jim McCormick, Alex McMurray and Paul Sanchez a.k.a. the Write Brothers managed to put together "First Flight" this winter. I've listened to every track, note and word and offer this as my humble opinion.

Nola.com: Write Brothers told good musical stories at French Quarter Fest 2015

Friday, Apr 10, 2015
by | New Orleans Times Picayune - Nola.com

French Quarter Fest 2015 dished up a perfect Friday afternoon (April 10) for the four New Orleans songwriters -- Spencer Bohren, Jim McCormick, Alex McMurray and Paul Sanchez -- who team up as The Write Brothers band.

The Tropical Isle Hand Grenade Stage, set on the New Orleans riverfront, proved an intimate, acoustically satisfying setting for a show where the lyrics were as important as the foursome's energetic guitar arrangements. But this setting was so much better than that: a sweeping view of Algiers Point and the Mississippi River, which put most stadium light shows to shame. It...

WRITE BROTHERS TAKE FLIGHT...

Monday, Mar 2, 2015
by | Offbeat Magazine

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.

Jim McCormick is sitting in his Metairie living room late at night channel surfing. He stops at the George Harrison documentary, watches for a while, drifting in and out of half-sleep. Gradually, the bearded George morphs into Jesus and reaches out from the TV set to command McCormick: “You will form a band…a band of brothers. You will call it…the Righteous Brothers, scratch that, that name’s taken…make it the Right Brothers, but spelled W-R-I-T-E…”

by | tourworthy.com

Another great article about The Write Brothers!

 

The buzz is building down here in New Orleans around the city’s first songwriters supergroup, The Write Brothers. Last month’s local debut at Chickie Wah Wah was well received, leading one of the city’s premier sit-down clubs, Snug Harbor, to book them for a follow-up performance. The rapport Jim McCormick, Spencer Bohren, Paul Sanchez and Alex McMurray demonstrate in live performance is likely to make the quartet a strong draw at small theaters and clubs around the country...
