BROTHERS IN ARMS
X-Factor band Brothers 3 set to showcase unique genre
MUDGEE brothers Makirum, Tayzin and Shardyn Fahey-Leigh have come a long way since their
X Factor days in 2014. Their band, sentimentally titled Brothers 3, recently released Brothers Never
Part, which debuted at No.1 on the ARIA charts.
Next month the boys will embark on their biggest tour, including a show at Rooty Hill RSL on April 15.
The Standard caught up with youngest member Mak last week to discuss the brothers’ meteoric success. “We went through The X
Factor and developed as an act … we have worked on ourselves and found the direction we want to head in,” Mac said.
Having secured the No.1 spot on the country music charts and No.11 on the mainstream ARIA chart, Mak said they had been blown away by the support of their new album.
“We were scared we wouldn’t sell three copies on the mainstream charts,” he said. “We knew we had two (sales) from our parents.”
Mak said the current tour had 32 dates.
“That in itself is insane – our lives have been flipped upside down with the ability to do what we love for a living,” he said.
“We have made a lot of sacrifices along the way; everything we have has been invested in this band.”
Mak said fans could expect “one hell of a show”.
“We don’t want to classify ourselves as one genre – we want to create our own with country, folk, and pop.”
Brothers 3 show their “X Factor” in 2014 and (inset) the Fahey-Leigh brothers’ star is still shining.
