The Mallett Brothers Band is an alt-country/rock band from Portland, Maine. Slightly more rock than country, theirs is a musical melting pot that’s influenced equally by the folk and singer/songwriter influence of brothers Luke and Will’s dad David Mallett – himself a noted musician – as by the harder rock, punk and even psychedelic influences of the other band members. Brian Higgins on drums, Nick Leen on bass, Wally on dobro and electric guitar and Nate Soule on electric and acoustic guitars and mandolin. It’s song-driven music that holds up under the lens of solitary listening, but that’s equally apt to crank a room full of rockers into whiskey-fueled high gear.
Since forming in 2009, they’ve released three full length albums and toured the country extensively, opening for acts ranging from .38 Special to Toby Keith to Travis Tritt to the Turnpike Troubadours, as well as headlining a huge range of clubs including the famed Continental Club in Austin.
