The heartfelt vocal harmonies of country music's brother duos are echoed by the Brother Boys. Although Tennessee-born vocalists Eugene Wolf and Eddie Lynn Snodderly are not related by blood, the harmonic blend of their vocals shows that they were born to sing together. Joined by Missy Raines (acoustic bass) and Roger Rasnake (acoustic guitar), Wolf and Snodderly have created the Brother Boys' unique hybrid of country, folk, pop, bluegrass, swing, and rockabilly that they've dubbed "new hillbilly music."
Wolf and Snodderly first sang together in a theatrical show, Echoes and Postcards, produced by the Road Company in 1986. Wolf's musical talents were obvious from the time that he first produced a musical tone. At the age of two, he won a talent contest at the Capital Theater in Greeneville, TN. Inspired by local variety television programs, he pursued a career in theater. He appeared in the film The Curse and with David Keith (An Officer and a Gentleman) in the stage production Greater Tuna. Snodderly, who plays guitar, dobro, fiddle, mandola, and harmonica as well as singing, was inspired as a youngster by country artists including Flatt & Scruggs and the Wilburn Brothers. Acquiring his first guitar in 1964, he formed a band with neighborhood friends and spent the next six years rehearsing; his professional debut came in 1970. A melodic songwriter, Snodderly recorded two solo albums -- Sidewalk Shoes in 1977 and Sweet Light in 1980.
Following their success in Echoes and Postcards, Wolf and Snodderly agreed to make their musical partnership more permanent. Thus, the Brother Boys were born. After releasing a self-produced cassette album in 1990, they signed with Sugar Hill. While their debut CD, Plow, was produced by dobro wiz Jerry Douglas, Snodderly oversaw the recording of their second CD, Presley's Grocery. ~ Craig Harris
