"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 have become his trademark, garnering industry awards and nominations. Prior to stepping out with his own band in 2015, Edgar Loudermilk experienced a long tenure of performing with Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, Rhonda Vincent, and Marty Raybon. In addition to Loudermilk's bass playing and lead singing, band members include Zack Autry (mandolin/harmony vocals), Anthony Howell (banjo/harmony vocals), and Jamey Pittman (lead guitar/harmony vocals).
