Sam Holt Music
A Tribute to the music of Michael Houser

"Sam's got that hypnotic thing. He kinda gets into that trance when he plays, and all my
favorite guitar players have that ability to somewhat become hypnotized themselves. Mikey
(Houser) and Junior Kimbrough - there was a hypnotic thing, and I think Sam has that. It's
a big part of what drew me to him. Sam Holt Band is heavy Americana, somewhere
between The Marshall Tucker Band and Black Sabbath,” relates Sam’s former producer
and Widespread Panic keyboardist JoJo Hermann.

“I’ve always wanted the songs to come out the way I hear them in my head, when the
inspiration is the freshest and most pure,” says Sam Holt. “This record captures the songs
the way I envisioned.”

The debut album from Sam Holt Band, Southern Angels, contains Holt’s most honest and

accomplished songs to date. The album features guest appearances from Widespread
Panic’s John Bell and Danny Hutchens of Bloodkin. The emotional honesty in the lyrics
came from experiencing the bittersweet nature of life. “Many events and emotions in the
song ‘Southern Angels’ are from my time with Widespread Panic. Having John Bell on
this tune is an honor, but also makes perfect sense,” he states.

There are themes of finding positivity in the wake of tragedy running through the record.
‘Fix It Up Man’ co-written with Danny Hutchens addresses this subject. “Danny’s lyrics
paint a positive picture of someone who left us too soon. The track is a tribute to someone
we both love and miss very much,” reveals Holt.

Sam is known for his on stage appearances with Widespread Panic and his national
touring band Outformation. Sam Holt Band formed in late 2011 after Holt relocated to
Colorado. “I’m so lucky to have these guys in the band. Everyone is a great player, and
we listen to each other,” says the transplanted Southerner.

The chemistry was palpable the first time they played together. Sam Holt Band quickly
gained a devoted following from their tremendous live show. “Whether it’s a rocker or an
improv jam, seeing the audience react confirms the connection we have goes beyond the
The band has shared the stage with Shooter Jennings, Keller Williams, 7 Walkers, New
Mastersounds, North Mississippi Allstars, Jason Isbell, and Jerry Joseph.

With a national touring schedule falling into place and a new record, Sam Holt Band is
ready to take their music to the masses. “The journey is the thing, and I’m excited to be
on it with these guys,” Holt declares.

Travers Brothership

“This is a band that possesses a soulful magic and heart you don’t find in many young bands. This is real art." – Danny Harlen Mote, Lucky Trend Music

Twin brothers Eric and Kyle Travers have been making music and stunning audiences since they first began performing together at 13 years old.

In 2012 the twin brothers formed their latest project, Travers Brothership, an Alternative, Soul, and Funk ensemble based out of Asheville, NC.

It is safe to say The Brothership stands out amongst most acts climbing the charts in the U.S. today. Why do they stand out so boldly amongst the others? They care to make each concert a unique and unforgettable experience. Utilizing the band's unmatched live energy and superior songwriting, they create a live atmosphere that transforms an audience into a community. A Travers Brothership concert is best described as a wild block party, and this is a party you don't wanna miss.

Following the success of the "I Don't Mind EP" the band began touring nationally in 2013 and has since performed 400+ concerts across the United States. The band has shared the stage with many accomplished acts such as: Charles Bradley, Taj Mahal, String Cheese Incident, Blues Traveler, The Marcus King Band, Robert Randolph, Leftover Salmon, Trombone Shorty, Rebirth Brass Band, Dr. John, and many more.

Over the course of two national tours the band began work with Grammy award winning producer, Juan "Pericles" Covaz, and Grammy nominated engineer, Matt Williams. Following recording sessions at Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL and The Eagle Room in Asheville, NC the band's first album "A Way To Survive" was complete.

"A Way To Survive" was released in 2016 to critical acclaim and outstanding reviews. The album has won numerous awards including "Best Studio Album of 2016" at Homegrown Music Network, and has received airplay on radio stations throughout the U.S. and beyond.

Following the success of their first record, the band was voted "Best Alternative Band of 2016" by the readers of Asheville's Mountain Xpress, confirming the bands status as a staple of the Southeast music scene.

Travers Brothership is currently touring the U.S. in support of "A Way To Survive" and writing songs for their highly anticipated sophomore release.

"There are hundreds of great bands aiming for the major leagues, but few of them bring such a complete package as Travers Brothership. In this horse race, I've found where I'm putting my money." - Brian Swenk, Homegrown Music Network
