Our Story

A duo of midwest music veterans, songwriter Mikal Shapiro and guitarist Chad Brothers team up to deliver classic country and folk alongside critically acclaimed originals. Strengthened by Shapiro’s lyrical prowess and Brothers world-class flat picking, the couple showcases their craft with close harmonies, intricate guitar work and notable chemistry. 

Chad Brothers was raised in Winfield, Kansas, home of the International Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival. There he cut his chops on Pecan Grove stages and in late night picking circles. His approach to the guitar reflects a love for classic melodies, rock and roll, acoustic flat picking and an ear for invention. 

Mikal Shapiro is a Kansas City songwriter whose musical influences span popular songs, psych rock, lounge and old time spirituals. A third generation storyteller, she draws inspiration from her travels, love life, and the state of the Union. She has toured extensively across the United States and recorded five albums including three solo albums. 

The Kansas City Star, Deli Magazine and Wednesday MidDay Medley declared Mikal’s latest album “The Musical” to be one of the top releases of 2015.

Shapiro Brothers released their debut self-titled album in November 2016.  Click here to listen to "Shapiro Bros."
