The Houstons

Staff Pick

A two-man band with an amazingly full-band sound is probably the simplest and best way to describe these stalwarts of the Charlotte music scene. We first came to know real-life brothers Justin and Matt Faircloth as the duo, The Houston Brothers. Justin simultaneously handled vocals, keys and drums while Matt handled harmonies, guitar and bass pedal. They blew our minds. Later on, they expanded the lineup for a time and dropped “Brothers” from the name — becoming The Houstons — but now they’re back playing as a two-piece again and, well, they’re back to blowing us away. If you haven’t experienced them live yet, consider it a must.
