Biography

Trinidadian steel pan artist and composer Ray Holman has recorded with steel bands in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Japan and Europe. Ray began his steel pan journey in 1957, at the age of 13, when he played in Ellie Mannette’s steel band, The Invaders. Since then he has arranged for many of the top Trinidadian steel bands, as well as steel bands around the world. In 1972, he became the first arranger to both compose, arrange and perform his own tune for the National Panorama Steel Band Competition in Trinidad. A Tribute to Ray Holman, his first CD, featured 8 of his Panorama compositions. His complex harmonies and demanding arrangements make him one of the most sought after composers for new steel band compositions. His love of jazz and his lush harmonies are well displayed in his album In Touch. For more information about Ray Holman, please visit his official site: www.rayholmanmusic.com.
