BROTHERS IN ARMS

X-Fac­tor band Brothers 3 set to show­case unique genre

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
