Not to be confused with the blond-haired brothers of 80s pop-rock fame, these Nelson Brothers are purveyors of gritty Americana that calls to mind a wealth of influences.

There’s the sound of Dire Straits in the languid guitar solo that flows from Simon Nelson’s liquid fingers on today’s Free MP3 of the Day, the Nelson Brothers’ “Keep Movin’ On.”

There are also shades of Robbie Robertson‘s early solo years (especially Storyville) along with whispers of Dylan, Knopfler and Chris Rea in the vocals.

Since the brothers released this cut in 1994 (as part of their Hometown album), they’re traveled near and far to ply their trade as both songwriting hired-hands as well as touring performers. They’ve since released a new record, 2009’s Pieces Of The Heart, one we’re hoping to get a piece of ourselves sometime soon.
