ERIC BRACE & THOMM JUTZ 

The new duo Eric Brace & Thomm Jutz is not really new at all.

Eric and Thomm have recorded and toured together for several years now, with Thomm in the role as recording engineer, producer, guitarist, and harmony singer for the Eric Brace & Peter Cooper duo.

 

Two extraordinarily talented people, Thomm and Eric have taken very distinct paths to arrive at their Nashville collaboration. 

 

Eric began his musical career in Washington D.C. where he was a journalist with the Washington Post. In Washington, he launched his acclaimed roots-rock band Last Train Home in the late ‘90s, touring with the group extensively across the U.S. and Europe, releasing seven albums and one concert DVD. The band moved to Nashville in 2004, where Eric met another journalist, Peter Cooper, who covered music for the Tennessean newspaper. They began a part-time duo, which soon became a nearly full-time thing, and so far they have four records to their name, all released on the label Eric founded in East Nashville, Red Beet Records.

Eric and Peter were nominated for a Grammy for producing I Love: Tom T. Hall’s Songs of Fox Hollow, their 2011 release on Red Beet Records that featured them, along with Patti Griffin, Bobby Bare, Jim Lauderdale, Duane Eddy, and Tom T. Hall himself, all reprising tunes from his classic kids record of 1974, Songs of Fox Hollow.

 

Speaking of the great Bobby Bare, a 13-year-old Thomm Jutz was watching TV in his family home in the Black Forest of Germany one night, when Bobby Bare came on and sang his hits “Detroit City” and “Tequila Sheila.” Like a bolt from above, young Thomm knew right then that he was going to play guitar and move to Nashville. Twenty years later, in 2003, he did just that. In Nashville, he immediately became an indispensable sideman to acclaimed artists Nanci Griffith, Mary Gauthier, Kim Richey, and Maura O’Connell. After building a recording studio he has become one of the most sought after producers of acoustic music in Music City, with production credits on albums by Nanci Griffith, Jason Ringenberg, Sid Griffin, Mac Wiseman, and many more.

Thomm has produced, engineered, and played on the last two Brace-Cooper albums, The Comeback Album, and C&O Canal, as well as Peter Cooper’s last solo release, Depot Light: Songs of Eric Taylor. It’s a natural progression that Thomm would become the third member of the duo, so yes, now they’re a trio. Thomm’s spectacular guitar playing has added a virtuosic dimension to Eric and Peter’s live performances and arrangements, while his harmonies and lead singing add vocal richness to the shows.

He has also joined the short list of writers such as Joseph Conrad and Vladimir Nabokov whose works in their second language of English are as evocative as anything a native speaker can conjure. To grasp the truth of that, listen to Thomm’s three albums of original music about different episodes in the Civil War, titled The 1861 Project, volumes I, II, and III. They feature such artists as Bobby Bare (yep, they’ve become friends), Marty Stuart, Jerry Douglas, and Kim Richey, and are astonishingly evocative.

Thomm is also one of the most successful songwriters in the bluegrass world, having charted four #1 bluegrass chart hits over the past year (as recorded by Shawn Camp, Irene Kelly, and Chris Jones & the Night Drivers), and has had five more compositions in the bluegrass radio top ten.

His recent duo album with Craig Market, Nowhere to Hide, and Thomm’s 2016 solo album, Volunteer Trail, are both gems of song craft and acoustic guitar work.

Together, Eric and Thomm weave stories, songs, harmonies, and guitar playing into something very special. The lyrics are as thoughtful as those of their heroes, a list that includes John Prine, John Hartford, Kris Kristofferson, Tom T. Hall, Paul Simon, and Townes Van Zandt. Add harmonies that bring to mind the Seldom Scene, Emmylou Harris, and the Everly Brothers, and sumptuous guitar arrangements, and you have a truly memorable evening of music.
