Pickled Holler: A musical circle of family and friends

The legacy of families making music together has a long and storied history. The Carter Family, The Allman Brothers, The Beach Boys all have left indelible notches on the familial music history timeline. Family musicians live, write, and practice together. There's an unexplainable kinetic energy of true "family "musicians (blood kin or not) to predict how the others may phrase a certain melody before it's even escaped their lips. It's musical mind reading. It's mystical, magical and rare.

Pickled Holler is undeniably a family band. Husband and wife duo Matthew and Jessica Williams (guitar and bass/flute) represent the foundation of the band and along with former in-law, now just plain old outlaw Trey Young (mandolin) they form the family circle of Pickled Holler. The band never dismisses an opportunity to bring other music friends into the family-fold.

The music (Matthew likes to call it Pickledgrass) is a hybrid of bluegrass and traditional tunes with nuances of jam, but never strays too far from a dedication to roots, dynamics and lush harmonies. Compositions are arranged by Matthew and Jessica (Jessica is a classically trained flutist), and then the band steps in to add dimension and expand the sound. The musicianship is undeniable. But Pickled Holler's true magic lies in the sheer joy of playing together. Chemistry is a real element of music and Pickled Holler has it in spades.

"Watching musicians perform who genuinely care and love one another can be inspiring and inspiration gives people hope!" says bassist and all around lovely chanteuse, Jessica. “Every single note you share with someone is a mutual language of emotion and understanding."

"Pickled Holler has a voice that anyone who listens won't be able to deny themselves a smile, a foot tap, or perhaps a full blown dance." laughs mandolin player Trey Young. "I suppose the hope that Pickled Holler may offer, is that there are still people who make music because they love it and who really want to make and perform music that makes people happy and feel better about life." more >>>
