"If you like a little human feeling with your wry stories and heart land strumming, we direct your attention to From the Ground Up, the new CD from Brother's Keeper. David and Robert Morey are St. Louisans transplanted to Iowa City, where they've honed their twin acoustic jangle and seamless harmonies in the college-town coffee-houses. The usual pieties of the folk genre are gently skewered in such tunes as "Wrong Cliche" and "The Blues Up and Left," although elsewhere on the CD you'll hear earnest echoes of such acoustic stalwarts as Harry Chapin, James Taylor, and even Tracy Chapman."
--St. Louis Post Dispatch
"Their voices blend together so smoothly."
--Iowa City Press Citizen
"A couple of budding James Taylors."
--Des Moines Register
"A quintessential coffeehouse duo, the brothers Morey have fashioned a delicate stylistic bridge that spans the collegiate 'folk revival' of the early 60s (the Kingston Trio, the Chad Mitchell Trio, Chad & Jeremy, et al.) and late 60s/early 70s singer/songwriter duos a la Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts. From the Ground Up is a quietly sedate, rainy-afternoon/late-night comforter."
--Icon (Iowa City)
"They harmonize well together, and their timing is great. A fine addition to my rush hour stress-combating music arsenal."
