American Blues Scene reviews The Richmond Sessions

JD Nash had a lot of love for the gospel influences on Sherman Holmes Project's The Richmond Sessions. 

Make no mistake, the music of The Richmond Sessions took us to church. We’re not talking about one of those Megachurches often seen in evangelical broadcasts. This is tent revival, foot stomping, back to the roots of it, church. The very first track sets the tone. Filled with fiddle, banjo, dobro and lofting vocals, the traditional hymn, “Rock of Ages,” rocked our socks off. Other great, gospel classics include the Holmes favored, “I Want Jesus,” and “Wide River.”

The Richmond Sessions reviewed by Scott Barretta in the Clarion-Ledger

Renowned blues scholar Scott Barretta wrote a fantastic review of the Sherman Holmes Project last week in the Clarion-Ledger out of Jackson, Mississippi. 

One of the most interesting recent releases this summer is “The Richmond Sessions” by the Sherman Holmes Project, featuring the surviving member of the celebrated blues/soul trio the Holmes Brothers. The Project continues the eclectic musical approach of the trio, with a heavy focus on country sounds alongside distinctive takes on classics from rock, southern soul, and gospel.
