Little Brother Eli – Awkward Positions [LIVE]

When I first heard this I though  hum..

these guys remind me of a famous classic rock band from the past.

Well, I’m guessing you will know the group I’m talking about.

The guitarist is not playing the most complex stuff here, neither is the bass player. But you know, it sure sounds good and it’s LIVE. So when these guys go out to do a gig, you can expect them to sound pretty close to this (minus the nice condenser microphones). I really like the singing as well (Hey Robert Plant, this guy can fill in for you!).

I tried to find out some info on this group but the only thing that came up was references to Payton and Eli Manning, football brothers in the NFL, (arguably two of the best in the league and  both probably going into the football hall of fame). Eli is often referred to as Payton’s “Little brother” so, perhaps this is the inspiration for the band name?

Now the singer sure sounds like he’s from the UK… so, this and any more info is all a mystery at this point.

Do me a favor… if you have any insights with the group “Little Brother Eli” give us a comment below…
