Biografie

The Holmes Brothers are a vocal and instrumental trio originally from Christchurch, Virginia. Mixing sounds from blues, soul, gospel, and rhythm & blues, they have released nine original albums, with two reaching the top 5 on the Billboard Blues Albums chart.
They have gained a following by playing regularly at summer folk, blues, gospel, and jazz festivals. They’ve recorded with Van Morrison, Peter Gabriel, Odetta, Phoebe Snow, Willie Nelson, Rosanne Cash, Levon Helm and Joan Osborne, and have gigged all over the world—including performing for President Bill Clinton.

They won the Blues Music Award from the Memphis-based Blues Foundation for Band of the Year in 2005 and for the Soul Blues Album of the Year in 2008.USA
Today calls The Holmes Brothers’ music „Rootsy R&B, gospel and country. They are glorious, full of soul and surprises.“
The New Yorker says, “The Holmes Brothers are capable of awesome achievements.” National Public Radio adds, “Their voices are rough enough for a juke joint and smooth enough for church.”
On March 2, 2010, the brothers released the album Feed My Soul, which was inspired in part by Wendell’s recent bout with cancer.

    This is my favorite group. I first saw them at the Bayou Restaurant in Mt. Vernon N.Y. I‘ve been a fan ever since. They play what can truly be defined as First Class American Roots Music.
