Zack and Sam DuPont are a Burlington, VT based, sibling indie-folk-rock duo. Since the start of the band in 2013, the brothers have spent most of their time on the road touring heavily throughout the Northeast, Mid Atlantic, South and Midwest in a fully independent pursuit to grow as artists and get their music into as many ears as possible.
Their travels have opened doors to festival appearances at SXSW & Grand Point North in addition to performances in support of a wide array of national acts including Bahamas, Blake Mills, The Lone Bellow, Sturgill Simpson, Langhorne Slim, Howie Day, Gin Wigmore, Family of the Year, Johnny Swim, Ben Sollee, Chris Eldridge & Julian Lage and Jerry Douglas to name a few.
What the DuPont Brothers are most excited about is the next phase. This past year, they have been working on a new album with VT producer, Michael Chorney along with an all-star cast of local Vermont based musicians. Their sophomore full length and first ever vinyl release, A Riddle For You hit stores on June 3rd.

“The DuPont Brothers have the gift of being both poets and musicians, a rarity these days. It’s always refreshing to hear sibling duos, because you can sense the true bond felt between them. A Riddle For You has a way of really tugging on your heartstrings, having the quality of sounding familiar while at the same time offering a fresh twist on traditional folk music.
Amy Lieberman, NYS Music
“It’s the essence of what stop-you-in-your-tracks music is suppose to do, which is shake you out of your day-to-day life like an old friend who wants you know everything will be ok, in time, as long as you never forget to believe in the endless possibilities of the cosmos.”
Garret K. Woodward, Smoky Mountain News
“ Deeply passionate old souls with a new and refreshing take on contemporary folk-pop music.”
