Her Brothers is a Canadian alternative rock band from Vancouver, British Columbia. Together since 2008, Gabe Penner (lead vocals, guitar), Josh Penner (bass guitar), and Levi Penner (drums) have performed at a variety of venues and events along the West Coast of North America including fairs, cafés, community events, universities, and churches. Opening up for big name acts such as Jerry Doucette and Dal Richards as well as winners of "Best Performer" and "Best Band".
Their debut album, SHE, released January 13th of 2015, is a mixture of the melodic hooks of Vampire Weekend with the anthemic textures of U2 and flavours of Jack White throughout. "Music isn't so much an end, but a means to an end; music is a vehicle for which to carry a message, and if we find ourselves singing these songs out night after night with each other, it only fits that these songs would be about something we believe in: Hope," says Gabe Penner.
Between January and March 2013, Gabe traveled through southeast Asia with a film crew documenting stories and experiencing life as it is for millions in that corner of our world. The images of poverty, women being offered for sale, and the attitudes of people who thrive off a caste system designed to keep gifted and amazing human beings from reaching their potential, will be indelibly etched in Gabe's memory. "All I could think was, "What if this was my little sister?' It's only a matter of place and time, and that shouldn't have to dictate someone's future."
With a dream to lead and inspire men to stand up for, encourage, and become positive male influences in the lives of women in our world who either don't have a voice or simply can't speak up for themselves, the name Her Brothers just made sense for them considering Gabe, Josh and Levi are also the older brothers to their own sister. "It's time that men stood up in the fight for women's rights and gender equality," adds Gabe.
