The Burtschi Brothers (burr-chee) is a four-piece band from Norman, Oklahoma,featuring Travis Linville, Kevin Webb, Rick Fogarty and Chris Foreman. The Burtschi sound is based in a wide variety of Americana styles including country, swing, jazz, bluegrass, blues and rock and roll, and has developed over the last three and a half years into a hot commodity in the flourishing tex-homa music scene. Fresh, heartfelt songwriting combined with extraordinary musicianship has earned the Burtschi Brothers an extensive fan base and a great deal of respect from artists and venues in the music community. Known for their speedy fingers and “jazz meets hillbilly” sort of style, guitarists Travis Linville and Kevin Webb are widely thought of as one of the best guitar duo’s from the Sooner State. With an abundance of talent and a style like no other, the Burtschi Brothers are in a class of their own. Performing about two hundred shows per year has kept the “non biological” brothers busy making new friends and fans nearly every night. Recent stops in Nashville, Austin, Little Rock, Memphis, Dallas, and Jackson, MS, have been met with great reviews and of course the Burtschis have remained an Oklahoma and Texas favorite for the last four years. Artists and bands the Burtschi Brothers have performed with or opened for recently include music legends such as Willie Nelson, Asleep at the Wheel, Junior Brown, Leon Russell, Ray Price and Billy Joe Shaver. The independent release of “Uncertain Texas” in May of 2000 gave the Burtschi Brothers a quick start. Recorded entirely in Linville’s home studio, “Uncertain Texas” boasts unforgettable songs with stripped down production and has received an impressive amount of radio play in the Oklahoma region and elsewhere. In January of 2002 the Burtschi Brothers released their second studio project, “The Burtschi Brothers Ain’t Being Treated Right”. Recorded at Ray Benson’s (Asleep at the Wheel) Bismeaux studio in Austin, Texas, “Ain’t Being Treated Right” is nothing short of an Americana classic. From hard swing to rock and all the soft places in between, this album is a must have for any roots music fan. A relentless tour schedule and an ever growing buzz has helped the Burtschi’s spread their brand of honest roots music all over the countryside and has carved their place in the annals of Oklahoma “Red Dirt” music. Singer/guitarslinger Travis Linville recently accepted two awards at the first annual “Red Dirt Music Awards” for Musician of the Year and Best New Male Artist. The newest Burtschi project, “Live in Oklahoma,” was released in October of 2003. This two cd set offers a taste of the high energy live set and has boosted the popularity of the band to a new level. “The live show is really special,” says Linville. “The funniest compliment I hear all the time is, “I usually don’t like country music, but you guys are AMAZING!” What sets the Burtschi’s apart from other bands is the way their sound embraces traditional music styles and takes them to a new level. From country to jazz to just plain okie’ rock, the Burtschi Brothers are quite simply one of the finest, hardest working bands in the business today.

Ain't Been Treated Right is the best CD I have bought IMO (among 40 or so) in the past year. This guy will never reach PG fame, but if you apreciate true singer/songwrites check Travis out.

If Willie Nelson and Gram Parsons made an album together it would sound like Uncertain, TX. Travis and Jamie have written some timeless songs and Travis is a legendary guitar player in the making. Look for big things from these guys!

These guys are wonderful. Travis is the best guitarist I have ever seen/heard. I first saw Travis play at Willie's Picnic in Luckenbach on stage playing WITH Willie. I've purchased around 4 of his CDs because anytime I let friends listen to it they won't give it back. They put the country back into country music. Travis and Jamie have written some great music. These guys kick ass
