About Brick + Mortar
Brick and Mortar build a solid foundation in Jersey
Bruce Springsteen. Bon Jovi. Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons. Brick and Mortar. What do all these artists have in common? They've all garnered a notable amount of success since their formation, and are hailed as part of the musical and artistic culture of the state of New Jersey. But for Brick and Mortar, especially, this young band is still laying the foundation that will guarantee success for years to come.
Comprised of frontman Brandon Asraf (bass guitar, vocals) and John Tacon (drums, electronic samples, vocals), Brick and Mortar (also known as Brick + Mortar) gained a groundswell of support in the Asbury Park section of the state, becoming the first electronic drum and bass pop duo to have success in that area. Before long they had branched out, playing up and down the coast in packed venues night after night.
It was 2010 when Brick and Mortar released their debut studio album, recorded independently and called "7 Years in the Mystic Room." Praised by critics and fans, the album was the catalyst to an invite from Sony/Jive Records to a showcase performance at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City. Though the duo didn't come out of that venue with a record deal in hand, they did sign to Anchor & Hope Music, gaining a spot in the "No Pulp Music" showcase in the CMJ Music Marathon.
Brick + Mortar has released a number of singles and performance videos over the last few years, and was invited to perform at the SXSW Music Conference at the "House of Creatives" showcase. Their latest EP, "Bangs," was released through Photo Finish Records.
The band is now touring relentlessly, opening for the likes of Imagine Dragons, Icona Pop, and Jimmy Eat World. They've also been performing in the summer festival circuit at mainstays including Made in America, Loufest, and Lollapalooza.
Brick + Mortar currently has dates booked through February 2015 as part of the CTTM10 Tour.
