Bio

Formed in late 2010, Tweed Funk has been an integral part of the "soul-revival" movement with their own style of Memphis flavored soul, roots, and blues. This Milwaukee, Wisconsin soul-blues revue is fronted by Joseph "Smokey" Holman, who recorded under Curtis Mayfield in the early 70's. Tweed Funk boasts 6 Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) Wins since 2012 for the band and its members. In April of 2016 the band released their fourth CD, "Come Together", consisting of 10 new original tunes. Tweed Funk toured the Midwest and east coast of the United States in support of their new album. "Come Together" won a Blues 411 Jimi Award for R&B/Soul Release for 2016 and was a Finalist for The Blues Foundation's Best Self Produced CD Award.

Tweed Funk's fourth CD, "Come Together", performed well on the blues charts and received airplay and reviews from around the world. Additionally, the CD crossed-over to non-commercial formats outside of blues radio. "Come Together" reached #11 on the Roots Music Report (RMR) Top 50 Blues Album Chart and #1 on the RMR Soul-Blues Chart; reached #19 on the Living Blues Chart; featured as Dan Aykroyd's (aka Elwood Blues) "blues-breaker" on the internationally syndicated radio program The Bluesmobile.com; airplay on BB King's Bluesville on SiriusXM; and Joseph "Smokey" Holman was nominated for a 2016 Living Blues Award for Most Outstanding Blues Singer.
