The Family Sowell
Knoxville - Tennessee - United States

The Family Sowell is an award-winning, bluegrass band, from the foothills of Knoxville, Tennessee.  They feature beautiful family harmony, driving instrumentation, and heartfelt originals along with their natural gift of showmanship.  Their latest project, “Same Kind of Different”, produced by Grammy-nominated producer, Ben Isaacs, was released this past February and showcases primarily original songs that have quickly become fan favorites.  One in particular, their single “Good Place”, has been featured by many DJ’s and even debuted at #10 on the Bluegrass Borderline’s Top Ten Countdown this past Sunday.

“The Family Sowell is one of the most talented families you will ever meet.  It has been my pleasure to learn this family individually and collectively and watch them grow.  I love the passion that they all show in their vocals and in their music.  I look forward to seeing where this family will go in the next few years.  I love this family.” — Ben Isaacs, Producer, Bassist, & Vocalist, The Isaacs

“It takes motivation and hard work to become as good as The Family Sowell.  Either that or there’s something in the water in East Tennessee!” — Professor Dan, Director at ETSU Bluegrass, Old-Time, and Country Music Studies

“Talent and energy and integrity and faith and fun. That’s the blueprint for The Family Sowell. I'm proud to call them my friends." — Daryl Mosley

“Some people think that traveling with your family is easy because “you have them right there,” and don’t have to leave them behind. Many people don’t understand the sacrifice and immense respect that is required to travel with family. The Family Sowell has taken on the road with all of its ups and downs, in a very strong leap of faith. It has really been amazing to watch their growth and progression from this side of the fence. Naturally, their instrumental talent, vocal ability, and musical approach have an exceptional growing presence that will carry them far in this business. The stronger presence, however, is the hand that God has laid on them. The obvious presence that He has in their lives as individuals and as a family will shine brighter than any flashy solo or tight harmony. With Him at the helm, this family will only have one direction to go - up!” — Skip Cherryholmes
