"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 IIIrd Tyme Out, Rhonda Vincent, and Marty Raybon, in 2015 he stepped out forming his own band with the highly acclaimed guitarist, Jeff Autry. Edgar’s band has released two projects, with the 2016 release of “Georgia Maple” debuting at #4 on the Billboard charts (July, 2016). A highly anticipated new release on Pinecastle Records is scheduled for the summer of 2018.
Jeff Autry, long admired for his guitar skills, toured 14 years internationally with the John Cowan Band. In addition, he’s performed and toured with Sam Bush, Bela Fleck, Tim O’Brien, Peter Rowan, the Lynn Morris Band, Yonder Mountain String Band, and the Travelin’ McCourys.
Rounding out the group are Zack Autry (mandolin/harmony vocals) and Curtis Bumgarner (banjo).
The musical styling of the Edgar Loudermilk Band, featuring Jeff Autry, encompasses bluegrass, swing, gospel, and Americana genres.
