Nearly 30 years in the making, The Britemores is a collaborative effort featuring long-time Detroit musical allies Johnny Chan (New Dynasty 6, Split Signals), Jeff Meier (Detroit Cobras/Rocket 455/Nathaniel Mayer/Gino Washington), Jerry Barterian (Onset, Hysteric Narcotics) and Will Lorenz (aka “the kid”).
Comprised of myriad styles and influences, The Britemores’ music gives a thoughtful, greasy nod to Detroit garage/punk legends through memorable guitar hooks while cleansing their audience’s musical palate with soft-spoken, heartfelt ballads that even their mothers approve of.
The Britemores have played countless local shows in addition to shows at venues like the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland and The Bowery Electric in New York City. Chan, a former resident of New York City, exemplifies the roughness of city-life in songs like Grand River, unrequited love in songs like Words In The Air and Shot Down Again, and
distinct rock anthems like I’m Sick Of You and You’re So Great.
The Britemores should not be pigeonholed into any certain genre, and their debut full-length LP co-produced by Meier and award-winning producer Mike E. Clark (Insane Clown Posse, Kid Rock) should prove this to anyone.
