Biography

Being in the right place at the right time is possibly one of the most important things to remember in the world we live in today. Building your own success is essential but most people who succeed nowadays have at some point in their life experienced a certain element of luck to give them the kick start they need and deserve.

Greg Holden is no exception. Having only begun his solo journey in June 2007, he has had his fair share of luck to help him along the way. Having spent his late teens and early twenties squashed into vans with his band mates, playing gig after gig, in town after town, spending pound after pound with little hope of a career in the music industry, Greg was losing his ambition and decided to put down his electric guitar and pick up his acoustic, something he had wanted to do ever since he began playing at the age of 17.

With a huge influence from older artists such as Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash to more recent writers such as Damien Rice and Ray Lamontagne, Greg Holden’s music has been described as “Soulful”, “Melodically Beautiful” and “Incredibly Genuine”. In today’s music world, being original is almost an impossibility, the market is over-crowded with every sort of music genre imaginable. That doesn’t mean that you can’t sing from your soul, it doesn’t mean you can’t believe in what you are writing about and it doesn’t mean you can’t play from your heart. This is something that Greg Holden does well and anyone who has seen one of his live performances will tell you the same.
