The three Holmes Brothers have been playing music since 1979, a mix of gospel and blues — particularly electric blues. Their new CD, Simple Truths, features both originals and songs by Willie Nelson, Hank Williams and Bob Marley. Grammy-winning producer Craig Street, who has worked with Norah Jones and Cassandra Wilson, produced the record. Meredith Ochs has a review.
