HOUSTON – Houston band The Powell Brothers visited the Houston Life set to chat with Melanie Camp and perform their new song, “Drive,” ahead of rocking Fan Fest at Minute Maid in the lead up to the Astro’s first game in the 2022 World Series.
“We started off playing in a pizza restaurant that showed Astros games, and even we’ve just been working our way up ever since,” said Blake Powell. Now, they play AT the games. The band joked they only got together so they could get free tickets to Astro’s games.
Real life brothers, Blake and Taylor Powell, along with drummer and brother from another mother, Michael Smith make up the local Texas band.
Blake and Taylor grew up in Humble, Texas. Both the brothers spent time living in Massachusetts while studying at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. They now live a little over an hour and a half outside of Houston in an old barn that they have transformed into a space where they can create their videos and music.
They have several dogs, chickens, and some cows.
When they are home, they like to catch an episode of Houston Life. Their mom is a big fan of the show! (Hello, Mama P!!)
