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 most recent, “Georgia Maple” debuting at #4 on the Billboard charts (July, 2016). In March, 2018, their new single “It’s a Way of Life That Stands The Test of Time” was released on Pinecastle Records. The newly-completed CD is slated for release in mid-summer, 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. In addition to Autry’s prowess on the guitar, he steps out on lead and harmony vocals.
On mandolin is the highly accomplished Zack Autry. Zack picked up the mandolin when he was 8 years old and has since been lighting up stages with his talent. In addition, Zack lends his voice to lead and harmony vocals.
Rounding out the group on banjo is the very talented and musically diverse, Curtis Bumgarner. Bumgarner’s banjo style easily adapts from hard-driving traditional bluegrass to the swing tunes the band showcases.
The musical styling of the Edgar Loudermilk Band, featuring Jeff Autry, encompasses bluegrass, swing, and gospel genres.
