The Talbott Brothers are a duo composed of brothers Nick and Tyler Talbott. Born and raised in Imperial, a small town in Southwestern Nebraska, they began writing and performing together before relocating to Portland, OR. Forming an alternative blend of Americana Rock, The Talbott Brothers creatively combine blood harmonies with storytelling and infectious melodies.
