Sherman and Wendell Holmes, along with their honorary brother, Popsy Dixon, are The Holmes Brothers. For over 40 years now, the brothers have been entertaining audiences with their time-tested blend of blues, R&B, country, gospel and soul music. Out now on Alligator Records, Feed My Soul was produced by longtime fan and popular singer Joan Osborne, who also lends vocals to a few tracks. Lead singer Wendell Holmes' battle with cancer inspired most of Feed My Soul, with some of the material written while he underwent treatment.
