Humming House
At once danceable and reflective, familiar and nostalgic, Humming House is a musical experiment gone right. Woven together from diverse backgrounds (Americana, classical composition, bluegrass, soul, and traditional Irish music), their playground of musical exploration has something for every generation. Unmistakable pop sensibilities mixed with a depth of lyrical narrative give their whimsical so
ngs an irresistible quality that can only be described by the imagery of the name – Humming House.

Fresh from recording their debut album (unreleased) with Grammy-winning producers Vance Powell (The White Stripes, Chris Thile, Buddy Guy) and Mitch Dane (Jars of Clay), Humming House has hit the ground running. A whirlwind of press has followed as the band had been featured on NPR’s Live in Studio C and All Things Considered, Nashville’s Lightning 100 local spotlight, and STETSON’s Center Stage artist of the week.

“Humming House reminds us how to have a good time with…. Classic sounds and a timeless look…. a crossroads between folk, blues, gospel and bluegrass make this band one our favorite new sounds.” - STETSON

“A new Nashville band with a throwback sound” – Blake Farmer – All Things Considered – NPR

“Humming House, (is a) mix of folk, blues, and bluegrass with pop sensibilities.” – Will Griffin – WPLN – Nashville Public Radio

“Humming House is nothing short of Irish porch stomp.” – Mitch Dane – Sputnik Sound
Biography by Charlie Denison
Yellowstone Newspapers – Montana

—–

Humming House is composed of five good friends. Justin Tam leads with a generous voice, stomping feet, and ukulele rhythms. Kristen Rogers backs him up with bountiful vocal harmonies and the skills of a master tambourinist. Josh Wolak on mandolin and background vocals offers a nod to bluegrass roots. Mike Butera’s viola and guitars convey a depth of melody and contour. Finally, Ben Jones on upright bass and kick drum provides the essential cadence to keep it all together. We make this music because of our shared passion for musical merriment and creativity. We enjoy every minute of it and look forward to meeting you very soon!
