Corey Medina and Brothers is a blues rock band from northern Minnesota, led by Diné Corey Medina from Shiplock, New Mexico. Shiprock is located in the Navajo tribe who were born and raised in Medina. He moved to northern Minnesota in 2012 and worked with Incepticons Entertainment. Through Incepticons Entertainment, Medina released his debut album “Old Dog Crying” in May 2015, produced by Garlic Brown Beats. Medina now plays, writes and produces full-time with the Incepticons team and also travels with his band The Brothers, hence Corey Medina and Brothers. Medina refers to the Brothers as representative of the relationships he enjoys with fellow band members. Currently, the Brothers band consists of Eric Sundeen on drums from Bemidji and Gary Broste on double bass, also from Bemidji. They set out to spread light to darkness and bring hope to the hopeless with their raw, soulful, intimate music and stage performances.

Archer plays an upbeat mix of blues, bluegrass, country, and folk that doesn’t quite fit into a single genre. His fingerstyle and slide guitar display a level of flair and mastery that can only come from 40+ years of musical style sifting, while fusing his Iowa roots with his Minneapolis alternative rock years , keeping the fragmented scenes that resonate with him. He makes an instrumental sound that is truly his own from the guitar.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under the guise of “staff.” Typically, “staff” bylines are used when rewriting basic newsletters originating from official sources, such as city press releases about road closures, and require little coverage. This byline is sometimes used when a news story has many authors or is formed by aggregating news previously reported from various sources. If external sources were used, they will be noted in the story.
