Humming House brings an interesting mix of bluegrass and Americana-you-can-dance-to to a younger generation with what has been dubbed their whimsical style and lyrical depth. The house is definitely a-humming when these jovial folks play a room.
Justin Wade Tam, Leslie Rodriguez, Bobby Chase, Joshua Wolak, and Ben Jones make up Humming House, and they call Nashville, Tennessee their home. They have worked with such impressive Grammy Award-winning producers as Vance Powell (The White Stripes) and Mitch Dane (Jars of Clay), and their debut record earned them recognition from both the Live in Studio C and All Things Considered segments on NPR, as well as write-ups in American Songwriter Magazine and even a Daytrotter Session.
Humming House’s single “Fly On” earned a spot in the rotations of both CMT Pure and Zuus Country, and they have also seen their music featured on such television programs as Justified on the FX Network and Hart of Dixie on The CW.
Just as impressive as the producers they have worked with are the acts with which Humming House has played, which includes everyone from Brandi Carlile and Lyle Lovett to Shovels and Rope and Ricky Skaggs. They have also played such festivals as SXSW, the Americana Music Festival, and Old Settlers Fest, to name a few, and they compare their sound to such artists as The Decemberists, The Avett Brothers, and The Punch Brothers.
