Brothers Teague and Ian Alexy began playing music and writing songs together at an early age while growing up on the southern coast of New Jersey. After pursuing music separately for a few years, Teague in California and Ian in New England, the brothers came together in 2005 to form Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank in their adopted home of northern Minnesota. Hobo Nephews began recording their first album and playing their first shows in the wintery town of Duluth, Minnesota alongside other burgeoning Americana artists Trampled By Turtles and Charlie Parr.
Combining what Minneapolis Star Tribune calls “timeless songwriting chops” with “tremendously played roots music” (Atlantic City Weekly), Hobo Nephews have tirelessly played, sang and stomped their own brand of Americana in big cities and small towns all over the country. The road tested duo has recorded 4 full length records and has another on the way in early 2015 produced by Trampled By Turtles violinist Ryan Young.
