A bit about HUMANWINE:
Since 2002 HUMANWINE uses the imagery of bones, dirt, blood and rust to share their allegorical tales. Each song adds a ''patch'' to ''The Quilt of Vinland''. Some songs blatantly call attention to ''Vinland'', a land filled with a mindless cog populace, the terrible Not-Me, YerYerOwns, Abrogated Munificents seeking YerYer, Enjoyeurs, Hordes and a whole assortment of various shaped and sized creatures including ogres, beetles and missing seafarers who wouldn''t carry their weight and didn''t realize until it was too late...Or Did They? Tune in next show to find out.
Who? [email protected] McNiss and Holly Brewer are the writers, composers and visionaries behind the band HUMANWINE, together they conduct a grab bag of talented musicians from within their circles of comrades which now spans across the United States, it should also be mentioned that they run a small web/graphic design company called Nervous Relatives Designs, a little record label called Nervous Relatives Records and they run their own publishing company called Nervous Relatives Music. The two hold true to the punk call to arms "D.I.Y. or DIE!"
The name Nervous Relatives was actually a mistake. There is a man who has been cared for by a mutual friend of Holly and [email protected]''s since 1995 who wanders around repeating sayings all day and all night without tire. One of the things you could hear coming from his mouth was ,"You nah nah revativ tiv tah me", which was taken as "You''re a nervous relative to me" by [email protected] and Holly, which had a double meaning since both [email protected] and Holly''s respective family members tended to be a bit on the nervous side of the pendulum''s swing knowing the young couple was not eating regularly and generally taking on way more than they could handle. When it came time to name their little budding empire they decided on Nervous Relatives.
Much later on Holly and [email protected] found out that the man was really meaning to say,"You''re not a Related to me" or "You''re not a relative tiv to me".
Back story: [email protected] (mat) McNiss and Holly Brewer ran within the same pack of musicians based out of an ancient farmhouse in Hudson NH. They had lived in the same places and played with the same people since 1996 but never actually collaborated with each other until the two had reunited at “The Farmhouse” in 2001. Holly had just moved back from 3 years in California and [email protected] had moved back from 3 years in Vermont. The first song they worked on together was called ”Estat” an allegory about Class War set to a waltz. Within three months of working together they had written almost 10 songs. Over the next few years the two traveled, played music on the street and in small clubs around New England and conjured strange pirate recordings sketching out what was to become HUMANWINE. Holly and [email protected] decided to move to Boston in June 2005 to collect other players to help illustrate the songs that were pouring out of them. The two embraced the idea of conducting a different set of musicians for each Series of Shows they took on and it worked! Within a year of being in Boston, HUMANWINE won Best New Act in the FNX/Boston Phoenix Best Music Poll 2006, Best New Local Act in the 19th ANNUAL BOSTON MUSIC AWARDS 2006, Holly Brewer was nominated for Best Female Vocalist by the BOSTON MUSIC AWARDS and their self released debut album ''Fighting Naked'' won BEST ALBUM of 2007 by WBZ TV.
