The Holmes Brothers
Real World Records

Where sublime gospel meets juke-joint blues, The Holmes Brothers have a rare talent for finding fresh joy, love and pain out of even the oldest material. The music is tight, the vocals rich and warm, the effect is disciplined yet soulful and infectious. The Holmes Brothers have played and recorded with the likes of Peter Gabriel, Van Morrison, Willie Nelson, Roseanne Cash, Joan Osborne and Levon Helm of The Band.


Quickly established as significant new names on the blues scene with the release of their first two albums, The Holmes Brothers are musicians of great breadth and resourcefulness and, even more, of a rare talent for finding fresh joy, love and pain out of material they have played for years. For the blues outfit, a gospel album felt like a natural move.
Brothers Sherman and Wendell grew up in Christ Church, Virginia, where their family still lives, and are long-time members of the Calvary Baptist Church. Popsy Dixon was born in Virginia and grew up in Brooklyn, New York, singing in Pentecostal churches.
The Holmes Brothers' music exhibits a remarkable breadth of influences, all with an affinity for the spiritual in music. Recorded at the 1991 Real World Recording Week, all sorts of unexpected musicians turn up, with guest appearances by musicians from China, Tanzania, Ireland, Lapland and the UK.
