Auto-Tune the News

The Gregory Brothers are well known for a series of YouTube videos, Auto-Tune the News, in which recorded voices of politicians, news anchors, and political pundits are digitally manipulated to conform to a melody, making the figures appear to sing. They are a musical group who characterize their music as “Country & Soul, Folk & Roll.”

Members include Michael Gregory on drums and vocals, Andrew Rose Gregory on guitar and vocals, Evan Gregory on keys and vocals, and Sarah Fullen Gregory, on bass and vocals. They are most famous for their creation of musical viral videos, most notably the Auto-Tune the News series, which includes the Bed Intruder Song. The three brothers, originally from Radford, VA, moved to Brooklyn, NY in the mid-2000s and met Sarah in the local music scene. The four formed a band in 2007.
