The Brother Boys have reunited to bring their tongue and groove harmony and infectious rhythm to the stage once again. Ed Snodderly and Eugene Wolf began their brother-duet singing back in the 90s, releasing three critically acclaimed recordings; two for Sugar Hill: Plow, produced by Jerry Douglas and the self-produced Presley’s Grocery and one for England’s Zu-Zazz Records, Mulehead.
Years before the term Americana was born, they called their music New Hillbilly, which sounded good at the time; a way to distinguish the blending of country, bluegrass and rockabilly. The Brother Boys have a knack for this old sound. The emotions and country heartache tones match the landscape of East Tennessee, where they both grew up. The lyrics of Ed Snodderly’s Diamond Stream are featured on the walls of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Eugene Wolf has been a member of the acting company of the historic Barter Theatre for the last 19 years and appeared as AP Carter in the BBC documentary about country music, Lost Highway.
The Brother Boys were recently featured on the Great Smoky Mountains Association release, On Top Of Old Smoky; New Old-Time Smoky Mountain Music alongside Dolly Parton, Norman and Nancy Blake, Bryan Sutton, Jody Stecher and host of old-time musicians paying tribute to the music of the people who left the mountains in the 1930s so the National Park could be established.
Snodderly has released three solo albums of late; Diamond Stream, Brier Visions, and Little Egypt and has a new release, The Good Reason set for early 2017. Wolf released a CD of his one-man show, Clear, in 2008 and traveled to Russia in 2013 to record a set of American spiritual songs, recorded by Russian folk musician and producer, Mitya Kuznetsov, Where We’ll Never Grow Old was released in 2015 and was featured on the PBS television series, Song of the Mountains.
