The Holmes Brothers

hb hb
Virginia-born brothers Wendell and Sherman Holmes, along with drummer and master falsettist Popsy Dixon, distill modern African American music down to its essentials of blues, soul, and gospel–with just a bit country thrown in. The Holmes Brothers put their stamps on songs by everyone from Nick Lowe to Willie Nelson, but they're all fabulous original songwriters as well. There's a lot of gospel in the soaring harmonies and heartfelt idealism of the Holmes Brothers, and a lot of the blues roadhouse too. As Wendell says about their blend of the secular and the sacred, “Jesus turned water into wine, not wine into water.” The brothers come to Michigan with a recent release, "Feed My Soul," and it's highly recommended that you do just that with their stirring and exhilarating music.
