Get It! is an exciting set of burners bringing all the style and charm Holmstrom’s trio conjures nightly with Mavis Staples. “We made this record for good times… BBQs, parties, car rides… lots of 2½ minute songs… it was a blast to make,” Holmstrom says. Holmstrom and his bandmates, Steve Mugalian and Gregory Boaz, produced Get It! in various studios and garages throughout LA. “Most of it was recorded in Steve’s garage,” he says, “…and why not, garages and funky joints are where we play our best shit anyway.” The album’s first single “Erlee Time” features Mugalian’s Meters–y snapping snare drum, Boaz’s bubbly bass line and Holmstrom’s minimalistic, no frills guitar. Says Holmstrom, “I’ve had enough existential post-apocalyptic doom. Right now I just want to have a funky good time!”
 

After teaming with bluesman Johnny Dyer early in his career, Holmstrom released his first instrumental album, Lookout, in 1996, earning praise from the Washington PostPlayboy and LA Weekly, among others. In the years since he has released innovative albums that highlight blues, funk, roots and soul with a seeming ease, in addition to his recordings with Staples. NPR’s Bob Boilen raved; “…the band is crucial, discerning and supportive. Rick Holmstrom is her soulful guitarist – Staples calls him “Pops, Jr…” Get It! follows his 2021 release See That Light, the first on his own label, LuEllie Records, which garnered praise from the likes of Associated Press, Yahoo!, American Songwriter and No Depression.

 
Over the years, Holmstrom has released 6 solo albums on labels including Black Top, Tone Cool and M.C. Records, as well as winning a Grammy in 2011 with Staples (You Are Not Alone) and nominations in 2015, 2013 and 2009. He has toured with Johnny Dyer, William Clarke, Rod Piazza, Booker T, and played with Staples on tours with Bob Dylan and Bonnie Raitt, and most recently, Trombone Shorty and Ziggy Marley. In 2014 he and Staples performed for President Obama at the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act.
