The McCauliffe Brothers Band is a groove-infused rock band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Since 2005, Chris (guitar, lead vocals) and Mike McCauliffe (bass, backing vocals) have been writing and performing songs live with a variety of drummers. Chris’ exceptional lead guitar capabilities have been gaining the attention from crowds across the jam band market. In 2010, the band released their debut album, It’s Likely. The album was very well received by critics who articulated the band’s likeliness for greater success (see press). The brothers continued playing shows in support of It’s Likely while writing material for their next album.
Between working full-time jobs and playing shows on weekends the brothers had known for awhile that there wasn’t enough time to complete and record the songs for their next record. In 2015, brothers Chris and Mike McCauliffe left their jobs so they could devote all of their time to self-producing and recording their second full-length album, Simpler Days. The brothers converted their wooded house on the outskirts of Chapel Hill into a studio. Their goal was to write their best songs to capture a mass audience through hooks, grooves, and melodies. After 2 long years, the brothers finished the album. It is currently being mixed by Justin Cortelyou (Paul McCarthy, Phish, Taylor Swift) in Nashville, TN. Expect great things from this release with well packaged songs fused with elements of rock, pop, and groove. It will be in stores in Fall of 2017.
