Feed My Soul
Beloved roots trio examines universal themes of mortality, love, hard times and redemption against a musical background of the Holmes Brothers’ typically infectious blues and roots. Includes a host of sparkling originals and a couple of revelatory interpretations, like a jaw-dropping cover of The Beatles “I’ll Be Back.” “Glorious, rootsy R&B, gospel, blues and country. Full of soul and surprises” – USA TODAY
