The Gillum Bros – ‘Sticky Note’

In the video for ‘Sticky Note’, the latest single from The Gillum Bros, a beautiful woman leaves one brother (Keith, the singer) for another (Ryan, the piano player).



One Gillum gets the girl, while the other sits, dejected, on his bed with a sticky note on his head that says, “lonely.” It’s a cheeky acknowledgment of the sort of rivalry that exists within every family.

In real life of course these brothers are anything but rivals. Keith is the velvet-voiced crooner whose melodies radiate passion, pain, and poise, while Ryan is the expert musician and arranger whose whip-smart compositions incorporate elements of power pop, soundtracks and show tunes, cabaret, classic rock, and whatever else catches his ear.

Together, they make an unstoppable force: an old-fashioned songwriting team with ideas and sounds that fit on any contemporary playlist.
