Joan Osborne and The Holmes Brothers are a recipe for soul

Want a good recipe for soul music?

Here’s what you do: Start with vocalist, Joan Osborne, who has had pop music hits, performed on The Grand Old Opry, toured with members of The Grateful Dead and yet never strayed from her roots in rhythm ‘n blues music.

Now add a good, solid dose of The Holmes Brothers (Sherman Holmes, Wendell Holmes and Popsy Dixon), who have been playing their own unique blend of blues, gospel, soul and R&B since the late 1970’s.

Once you have assembled all these ingredients, all you need to do is stand back and listen.

Great soul music will begin to happen instantly, as it did in this KPLU Studio Session hosted by KPLU’s All Blues Host, John Kessler.

You can also find our Studio Sessions available as a video podcast in iTunes!
