The record maintains a bluesgrass/gospel vibe throughout that surprises and delights. Special Guests Include Joan Osborne, Rob Ickes & Sammy Shelor.
The Richmond Sessions" is Sherman’s Southern-style, stirring Irish wake for departed brother Wendell and bandmate Popsy. Think of them fondly as you clap your hands and stomp your feet. AP
The Richmond Sessions" leads to the same satisfaction the Brothers brought forth on every outing. Thanks for sharing, Sherman. No Depression
Sherman Holmes' voice contains a lifetime of soul. We are so lucky we still have him with us! - Joan Osborne
Sherman Holmes’ solo debut The Richmond Sessions can’t help being a milestone: It’s the esteemed singer and bassist’s first recording since the passing of his brother and musical partners, Wendell Holmes and Popsy Dixon, both in 2015. But his solo debut, dedicated to the memories of Wendell and Popsy, is no somber affair. The blend of bluegrass, gritty rock & roll and joyful gospel will be familiar from Holmes Brothers days. And with some of his strongest vocals on record, the album shows Sherman is still an artist in his prime. Long time friend, Joan Osborne, duets with Holmes on the Dan Penn classic, “Dark End of the Street.” Other songs include The Band's "Don't Do It," Credence's "Green River" and Ben Harper's "Homeless Child."
