Humming House is bringing a new sound to the city of Nashville. The group first came together and made music in 2011. Now its album Revelries, which came out in 2015, shows Nashville what talent it can bring to the table.
Humming House started making music that isn’t very popular in Music City. Songwriter Justin Wade Tam gathered some friends to make a mixture of bluegrass, Irish and folk music. Because of their creation, they received lots of attention. They received attention from big local names such as Lightning 100 and the Americana Music Association. Later on down Tam’s road, he found a solid band to create what is Humming House.
Revelries is their first album they wrote, arranged and recorded as Humming House. That’s all they need to express how talented their vocalists and instrumentalists are. Their talent can be heard through their recorded music, but they are a group that must be seen live. Bluegrass is typically a genre that is much better live, so that just proves that Humming House puts on a fantastic performance.
The way they play their acoustics is unlike any other. Using the mandolin, acoustic guitar, bass and fiddle, they create music that is accompanied by harmonic, hearty vocals, adding the folk pop sound. The Lone Bellow, Carolina Story, and The Roosevelts all have a similar sound to Humming House. The Singer/Songwriter category is gaining some great new acts, expanding the horizons of Nashville music.
