"Among contemporary lead bluegrass singers, Edgar Loudermilk has one of the most distinctive, recognizable, and enjoyable voices in the business. His crisp baritone lead is powerful, cutting, and expressively tuneful. As with Russell Johnson and Junior Sisk, similarly strident voices, you can always find him in the mix and always want to." --Bluegrass Unlimited
Edgar Loudermilk’s signature voice, bass skills, and songwriting are a family tradition for this Louvin Brothers’ descendant. Having experienced a long tenure of performing, including several industry awards, with Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, Rhonda Vincent, and Marty Raybon, in 2015 Edgar Loudermilk stepped out forming his own band. In addition to Loudermilk's bass playing and lead singing, band members include Zack Autry (mandolin/harmony vocals), Anthony Howell (banjo/harmony vocals), and Jamey Pittman (lead guitar/harmony vocals).
The musical styling of the Edgar Loudermilk Band encompasses bluegrass, swing, gospel, and Americana genres. The Edgar Loudermilk Band tours coast-to-coast and throughout Canada. In addition, the band is proud to be on the Rural Rhythm Records label.
