Viola & the Brakemen is a band established in 2012 by singer\songwriter Brian White from Tucson, AZ. The band has taken many forms with 7 editions over 8 years and has had a rotation of some of the finest musicians from the Northern Arizona area. In January 2020 Matthew Tress, Matthew Robinson, Jessica Ludwig and Steve Geise came together to form the final edition of Viola & the Brakemen. What we found was through solidarity of friendship & family the band now fulfills the sounds heard in Brian’s head- his writings began in 1989- this is Viola & the Brakemen. Viola & the Brakeman is: Brian White vocals, guitar, harmonica Jessica Ludwig vocals, percussion Matt Robinson dobro, banjo Matt Tress percussion Steve Geise bass.
