The Holmes Brothers Achieve A "State Of Grace"
Here's a February 2008 interview with bassist/vocalist Sherman Holmes of The Holmes Brothers. The band has a fantastic new CD out on Alligator Records titled "State of Grace" - which features an aclectic batch of cover tunes; and they do know how to make a cover tune their own. They've been called "the best interpretive band working today". For those unfamiliar, The Holmes Brothers sound is a mix of gospel, blues, funk, and rock - with a great positive vibe. Here Sherman chats about the new CD (which was recorded in about 3 days by the way), the band's history, playing live, and more. Fact: Joan Osborne used The Holmes Brothers as her backing band after her "Relish" CD came out. They've also backed numerous other artists too.
