The Holmes Brothers

“Great songs, whether we write them or not, bring great things,” says guitarist/pianist/vocalist/songwriter Wendell Holmes. “And we are all about striving to write, find and perform great songs.” The Holmes Brothers Wendell, bassist/songwriter/vocalist Sherman Holmes and drummer/vocalist and brother-in-spirit Popsy Dixon are true treasures of American roots music. For 35 years, The Holmes Brothers’ joyous and moving blend of blues, gospel, soul, R&B, rock ‘n’ roll and country has been captivating audiences around the world. Their spine-tingling three-part harmony singing, mixing Wendell’s gruff and gravelly vocals with Popsy’s soaring falsetto and Sherman’s rich baritone, brings the spirit of gospel-inflected deep soul music into every song they perform. Equally gripping is the rhythmic foundation laid down by Sherman’s bass playing and Popsy’s drumming, perfectly complementing Wendell’s blues-soaked guitar solos and church-inspired piano playing. The band expertly blends Saturday night’s roadhouse rock and blues with the gospel passion of Sunday morning’s church service. Rolling Stone says The Holmes Brothers play “impressive, fervent country soul.” Entertainment Weekly goes further, declaring “The Holmes Brothers are juke joint vets with a brazenly borderless view of American music...timeless and rapturous.”



The band’s new Alligator Records album, Brotherhood, was produced by Glenn Patscha (Ollabelle, Marc Cohn), Chris Bruce (Me'Shell NdegéOcello, Seal) and Hector Castillo (Brazilian Girls, David Bowie). It is another stellar chapter in The Holmes Brothers’ storied and still-evolving history. It’s also their most bluesy album to date, filled with roadhouse wisdom, late-night doo wop, proto rock ‘n’ roll punch, soulful R&B and closing with an amazing dose of Sunday morning spirit. Featuring fourteen songs including eight new Holmes Brothers originals and six carefully-chosen covers Brotherhood finds The Holmes Brothers at the absolute top of their game, creating timeless roots music. From the rocking Wendell original Stayed At The Party, to the sweet harmonies of Ted Hawkins' I Gave Up All I Had, to Sherman's soulful composition Passing Through, to the doo wop splendor of Popsy's vocals on the Stax classic My Kind Of Girl, to Wendell's gorgeous duet with his daughter Felicia on Loving You From Afar, to the final note of the band's most requested song and a highlight of each and every live performance the soul-stirring Amazing Grace, Brotherhood is a testament to the uplifting musical power that comes from the close-knit, fraternally telepathic relationship of The Holmes Brothers. “As much as I love all of our albums, this is among my favorites,” says Wendell. “We worked hard. We tried for a live, loose feel and we got it. Glenn, Chris and Hector captured The Holmes Brothers sound most distinctly.”



From winning multiple Blues Music Awards to sharing stages and recordings with Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, Joan Osborne, Willie Nelson, Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel, Merle Haggard, Al Green, Ben Harper, Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, Levon Helm, Rosanne Cash, Odetta, Marc Cohn and The Jungle Brothers, The Holmes Brothers have seemingly done it all. USA Today says that band is “glorious...full of soul and surprises.” The New York Times declares The Holmes Brothers “deeply soulful, uplifting and timeless.”

Since their debut on Rounder in 1989, The Holmes Brothers have toured virtually non-stop. They’ve performed in 50 different countries, including dates across the United States, Canada, throughout Europe, and in Singapore, Japan, Russia, Turkey, South America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand. In addition to their four critically acclaimed Rounder albums, they recorded Jubilation for Peter Gabriel’s Real World label in 1992, becoming the first American group to record for the standout world music imprint. 1996 found The Holmes Brothers starring in the independent motion picture Lotto Land, for which they also recorded the soundtrack. Their albums all received massive praise. “Mind-blowing,” said the Boston Herald. “Rich and satisfying,” raved The Washington Post.

All of The Holmes Brothers’ musical gifts are displayed in full force on Brotherhood. With their deeply soulful singing, uplifting harmonies and unsurpassed musicianship, The Holmes Brothers’ ability to deliver gospel fervor and raw blues intensity is as legendary as their ability to bring audiences to their feet. The band is eager to bring their new release to the stage. “We’re looking forward to exposing the new songs to our fans, and bringing new fans to our songs,” says Wendell. “If you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready, and The Holmes Brothers are always ready.”

Sol Roots
Sol Roots is a fierce guitarist and soulful singer who has toured around the world with many roots, funk, and blues legends. Sol's talent stretches from fiery rock to laid back jazz, and from funky innovative grooves to soulful ballads, drawing on a deep background in raw down-home blues.

Sol has performed on stage and in the studio with musical heavyweights Taj Mahal, Kenny Wayne Shepard, and with the international guitar hero Cool John Ferguson (nominated 2 years -Most Outstanding Guitarist-Living Blues), who he performed with steadily for years. With Cool John, Sol has opened for the great B.B. King, Derek Trucks Band, and other musical luminaries.



Sol has performed at many premier festivals and venues across the east coast US, and he and his band have co-billed with Soulive, Eric Lindell, Walter Wolfman Washington, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, The Wood Brothers, Jackie Greene, and more.



Paying homage to the greats, Sol seeks to push musical boundaries and bring Roots Music to a new generation of listeners.



Sol Roots is an official Home Grown Music Network artist.

“Sol's playing has been described as “musical glue," holding together many grooves and personalities. He has backed up legendary artists like Taj Mahal and Kenny Wayne Shepherd, opened for Robert Randolph, Wood Brothers, and has played with more obscure artists who have had unique perspectives and sounds. Though it all, he has learned many valuable lessons and is still able to hold on to the one thing that ties us all spiritually to one another music.”- Jeff Reid - The Beat Magazine

“The song “Rough Catfish” plants the listener firmly back in the barrens of the Mississippi Delta, as Sol howls like a man possessed. Think of Robert Johnson’s “Crossroads” fused with Jimi Hendrix’s “Machine Gun,” and you get some indication of what this song “feels” like. Tall comparison, I know, but this song, with its wonderful use of mood, proves worthy of the distinction.”- Evan Wade, Home Grown Music Network
