Event Details

“To say the buzz around the band Fog Holler is mysterious is apropos, and ambiguous explanations work fine for banjoist Casey Holmberg, guitarist Tommy Schulz, and bass fiddler Noa Laniakea, but their love of Bluegrass and traditional American music is no mystery. Promoting themselves as “a spectral band that channel the spirits of bluegrass past and future” has brought Fog Holler to the forefront of the San Francisco Bay scene and beyond.” – Bluegrass Standard
With his soaring tenor vocals and vintage 6-string bass guitar with surf inspired twang, Jimmy Touzel has crafted a unique concept album and signature solo country act. His debut full length album, Lonesome Lullabies, was released on July 21rst, 2023 by Belle Isle Records and is available on all streaming platforms as well as LP/CD/Cassette. Drawing on influences such as 50’s rock, surf guitar, spaghetti westerns, and the 1960’s Nashville Sound, Lonesome Lullabies was recorded and mixed 100% on analog tape and is drenched in plate reverb, tremolo, and slap back delay. These hallmarks of 50’s and 60’s music were deftly used by Jimmy to craft a sound with Lonesome Lullabies that is dreamy, ethereal, and sad. Early reactions to the album have drawn comparisons to Brian Wilson, the Flamingos, Eddie Arnold, Link Wray, Hank Williams, Ennio Morricone, and Ricky Nelson.
