Fog Holler is a fast-growing sensation in the world of bluegrass and acoustic music, born from an intense love of early country and traditional American music shared by Casey Holmberg, Tommy Schulz, and Noa. Discovered playing on the streets by Grammy award-winning artist Laurie Lewis, their innovative sound and energetic punk rock spirit has enthralled audiences across the world. The group’s original music synthesizes sincere, poignant writing with the austere, spiritual vocal stylings and harmonies of brother duos like the Stanley Brothers and the Blue Sky Boys. Fog Holler has toured in the U.S, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, and Switzerland and has shared stages with acts like Laurie Lewis & The Right Hands, Jerry Douglas & The Earls of Leicester, The Po’ Ramblin Boys, The Watkins Family Hour, and The Del McCoury Band.
Featured Profile :
Deep River was founded in Connecticut by Sharon Lewis in November 1992 with the intention of being a country band with three women and three men, balancing the energy of yin and yang, with the women always fronting the band. Lewis and partner, now wife, Sandy Howard, moved to Nashville in April 1993 and worked hard writing, performing and trying to get a major label record deal for 10 years. Two of our original songs were rated ‘Honorable Mention’ by country historian Robert K. Oermann in Music Row magazine, Civil War and Silver Eagle, and one of those, Civil War, was later played by KISS Country 99 FM in Asheville, NC.. While in Nashville Deep River sang with Vince Gill and opened for Mark Wills, Charlie Louvin and Wilma Lee Cooper, but the country music industry was not ready for an out bisexual couple, although at that time there were many closeted LGBTQI musicians and industry types including a few country stars. Lewis and Howard moved to Asheville, NC in April 2003 where Deep River has been the premier country vocal group ever since, performing original songs from our Nashville decade, our favorite country hits from the 80's & 90's plus the greatest hits of idols Linda Ronstadt and the Eagles, and opening for one of heroes, Kathy Mattea.
