I Draw Slow is a five-piece outfit comprising vocals, guitar, fiddle, banjo and double bass. Holden siblings Dave (guitar) and Louise (vocals) have been writing together for two decades. In 2008 the pair teamed up with Violinist Adrian Hart, Claw hammer banjo player Colin Derham, Double bassist Konrad Liddy to form I Draw Slow. Their sound has been described as Alt-country, folk, roots, old-time, Americana, and bluegrass. The five have created their own sound, rooted in the old time style of the Appalachian Mountains, drawing on Irish traditional music and modern Americana. However, this band offers a whole new songbook of stories and melodies. These are dark tales of debauchery and trouble swinging from the kind of well-crafted melodies that survive. Due in large part to the success of their YouTube video hit with Goldmine the band has become a popular in the USA without the benefit of ever touring the country.
