The DuPont Brothers
The DuPont Brothers
Two brothers are reunited after years of geographical separation by a resonant collaboration in music. Since the formation of the group in March of 2013, the Burlington, VT based indie-folk duo has honed in on their kindred synergy, living on the road while developing a large palette of material. In two and a half years, the brothers managed to play over 400 shows, covering 50,000 tour miles in support of their debut, self titled EP and first full length release, Heavy as Lead. The songs have taken them all over the country, making tour stops in the Northeast, Mid Atlantic, Mid West and South. Versatile songwriting modes, blood harmonies and fingerstyle guitar arrangements have opened doors to support a wide variety of national acts including Grace Potter, Sturgill Simpson, Bahamas, Jerry Douglas, Langhorne Slim, Blake Mills, Howie Day, The Lone Bellow, Ben Sollee, Horse Feathers and Chris Eldridge and Julian Lage.

“Together the DuPont Brothers resonate at just the right frequency. There were moments that honestly gave me chills."
-Dan Bolles, Seven Days VT


“It’s the essence of what stop-you-in-your-tracks music is suppose to do, which is shake you out of your day-to-day life like an old friend who wants you know everything will be ok, in time, as long as you never forget to believe in the endless possibilities of the cosmos.”
-Garret K. Woodward, Smoky Mountain News


“The debut LP from The DuPont Brothers is so pretty it hurts.”
- Maeri Ferguson, The Horn


“With the DuPont Brothers, we take a step back, slow our pace right down and take one deep breath, heart rate sliding down the scale as our thoughts climb through the murky path into our mind’s eye and away from the shallow chatter of everyday life. ‘Heavy As Lead’ takes us on a journey, one that is directed by emotion and mood, and guided by prose. The lyrics are perhaps as flowery as the music, poetry the basis for the construction of the tracks and a story clouded in ambiguity unfolding with each step.”
- Vickye, For the Country Record

Hope Country
“I believe that with love and encouragement we can change the worst of atmospheres,” says Brent Johnson.

Born and raised on a farm in Wisconsin, Brent had a desire to see the world and travel at an early age. He began playing in bands at 17 and has since toured in over 40 states as well as all over Canada. His desire to create an environment and place of hope led him to start Hope Country in 2011. With an emphasis on strong songwriting and storytelling lyrics, Hope Country has developed into a prime example of modern-day Americana.

Hope Country has released two EPs in the past three years and has supported them with multiple headline tours, festival appearances, and support slots for Brandi Carlile, Ingrid Michaelson, Twin Forks, Joseph, American Aquarium, The Wild Feathers, Nikki Lane, Sturgill Simpson, Rayland Baxter, Andrew Ripp, David Cook, Soul Asylum, Martin Sexton, & more, along with a run of sold out dates with Judah & The Lion.

While “Water, Land, & Sky” is dynamic full-band record and “Thirty One” showcases Johnson’s softer singer/songwriter side, the forthcoming self-titled release marries the two, calling to mind artists such as Jason Isbell and The Avett Brothers. Lyrically, the record continues Hope Country’s heartfelt stories of life and living. The album was recorded at Summer-Winter Studios in St. Paul, MN with Levi Stugelmeyer (The Cactus Blossoms, Caitlyn Smith) and mastered by Huntley Miller (Bon Iver, The Tallest Man On Earth). The record will be released on 02.24.17 with extensive touring to follow.

Hope Country’s purpose is to bring hope to our whole world everywhere the music goes.
