The Brothers Four


In this room you will find songs and stories about my experiences as a member of The Brothers Four going back to when I first joined the group in 1969. 

In many ways it’s because of The Brothers Four that I have been able to have a life and career singing songs and telling stories. You may find that reflected here.

Songs with Stories

  • I Will Be There

    The Brothers Four left Columbia Records and signed with Fantasy Records in 1970. When we were choosing material for the new album I showed the guys a song I had written. It was a thrill to have it be on the album. 

  • Singing Where Have All the Flowers Gone at the DMZ

    In 2008 The Brothers Four were invited to sing at a musical festival in Seoul. In addition to performing in the Olympic Stadium we had a chance to go to the DMZ that divides North and South Korea and perform at a nearby venue.

  • Winds of Green a song for our world

    The Brothers Four introduced "Winds of Green" in Japan in 1990. It was written by founding group member, Bob Flick. In writing this song, as well as producing the recording, Bob showcased what The Brothers Four do well.

  • Both Sides Now

    When I joined The Brothers Four in 1969 the group needed to record one more album for Columbia Records. We went to LA and recorded in January. They asked me to sing a solo on Both Sides Now.

  • Conversation with John Paine Part One

    I met John Paine at the end of 1968. Since then we have been friends, bandmates, and since 2002 neighbors. He is a special person in my life.

  • Conversation with John Paine Part Two

    So many good memories with John, professionally and personally. A recent was had to do with his birthday. His family and close friends went around in the circle we had surrounded him with and told him how he meant to us. 

  • Conversation with John Paine Part Three

    In this video John talks about the experience of visiting Japan on a regular basis. I have a fond memory of having dinner with John and his son, Scott, on what was John's last visit to that country.

  • Conversation with Karl Olsen

    One of the most satisfying things about being in The Brothers Four are the deep and abiding bonds of friendship that go beyond the music. Karl is special on stage and off.
