MICHAEL BREWER & TOM SHIPLEY are truly two who work as one. Still
as passionate as ever, they continue to blend guitars and voices and
perform for audiences 40 years after their trademark vocal harmonies and
intertwined acoustic guitars carved a unique niche in America's
soundboard. Their melodic music and
underlying lyrical themes of personal freedom and traditional songs of
still resonate with long time fans while continuing to draw new ones.
Shipley's Top 10 hit "One
Toke Over The Line"
was largely responsible for introducing them to the masses, yet their
music careers neither began nor ended with this one song.
Toke Over The Line" became a hit single record, but that was a small
measure of the impact Brewer and Shipley had on people who listened to
the sound they had created. Album buyers
understood that these men were designers, not pop music freaks, and as
prolific as they were, they didn't write songs to any formula.
Each album, from Down In L.A. to Heartland, was a
woven tapestry of fabric they had invented one song at a time.
Brewer & Shipley have recorded
albums for four different labels, A&M Records, Buddah/Kama Sutra Records, Capitol Records,
and their own One Toke
have created timeless music that has spanned 40
years, 50 states and many countries.
Brewer & Shipley
... two guys, two guitars, two great voices still blending as one.
