Since the release of State Of Grace, The Holmes Brothers’ popularity with fans and fellow musicians has continued to grow. They performed at Carnegie Hall’s Tribute To Bruce Springsteen concert, featuring Steve Earle, Patti Smith, The Hold Steady, Josh Ritter and many others. In 2009 George Thorogood recorded Wendell’s original song, Run Myself Out Of Town on his Dirty Dozen LP, an album that hit #1 on the Billboard Blues chart. Recently, The Holmes Brothers completed a tour of performing arts centers with their old friend Joan Osborne (who has also toured with The Dead, Phil Lesh & Friends, and starred with The Funk Brothers in the film, Standing In the Shadow Of Motown as well as releasing several great albums of her own).
With their deeply soulful singing, uplifting harmonies and unsurpassed musicianship, The Holmes Brothers continue to grow as artists. Billboard declares, “It seems like The Holmes Brothers get more assured and exciting with each passing year. They remain a musical force unto themselves.” Triumphing over adversity led directly to the creation of Feed My Soul, as the band turned what may have been a career-ending event into the best album in their long history. With the depth of the songwriting and the power of their performances on this new album – The Holmes Brothers serve their extended family of devoted listeners a rich musical banquet for the soul.
