Love and Hate and Brotherhood Record Release Show
Singer/songwriter Joan Osborne and gospel-style trio The Holmes Brothers perform together in San Francisco for the first time, celebrating the spring release of their new albums: Love and Hate and Brotherhood.
Considered one of the great voices of her generation, Joan Osborne is a multi-platinum selling artist and seven-time Grammy nominee. Her debut album, Relish, wove together strands of American roots music, poetic lyrics, and impassioned vocals, and produced the international hit “(What if God Was) One of Us.” Since then she has released several albums, toured extensively with her own band and as a member of The Grateful Dead, appeared in the Grammy Award-winning documentary Standing in the Shadows of Motown, and shared the stage with Bob Dylan, Luciano Pavarotti, Stevie Wonder, Emmylou Harris, and Patti Smith to name just a few.
Over the course of their 35-plus year career, The Holmes Brothers have been feeding souls with a joyous and moving blend of blues, gospel, soul, R&B, rock ‘n’ roll, and country. Their three-part harmony singing, mixing Wendell’s gruff and gravelly vocals with Popsy’s soaring falsetto and Sherman’s rich baritone, brings the soul and spirit of gospel music into everything they perform. The Holmes Brothers have won multiple Blues Music Awards and performed with the likes of Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, Keith Richards, Al Green, Ben Harper, Levon Helm, and Odetta.
