Greg Holden - On His New Record & NYC start (Last.fm Sessions)

Greg Holden performs for Last.fm

The Scotland native, singer-songwriter and co-writer of American Idol-winner Phillip Phillips debut single “Home” revels in being at the ‘right place at the right time.’ Greg Holden has built his success on the strength of his tremendous talent and a little bit of good luck.  Beginning his musical journey at the tender age of 17, Greg is no stranger to being squashed into minivans for tours among several bandmates, living gig to gig all over the UK just waiting to catch a break. After performing this way for years, Holden decided it was time for a change, so he put down the electric, and picked up the acoustic guitar.

Influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Damien Rice and Ray Lamontagne, Holden set out to create his own brand of soulful and melodically genuine folk-rock.  With so many other songwriters in the genre to compete with, true ‘originality’ can be hard to come by, but Holden has found a unique voice all his own.  With the belief in his heart and the backing of 29k listeners on Last.fm – Greg Holden brings a fresh flavor to the scene.  Being discovered in Brighton by famed producer Nunzio Signore while performing his debut EP Run, Don’t Walk, Greg finally caught that break.  Nunzio brought Greg to NYC where he was quickly scooped up by acclaimed talent manager David Margolis, and then ultimately Richard “Biff” Stannard (U2, David Gray, Spice Girls, Kylie Minogue) who then brought Greg to Ash Howes (Nelly Furtado & The Eagles). Greg believed this whole event was meant to happen. To him it was a sign that what he was doing was indeed the right thing, and that giving up on his music career was no longer an option.

Greg took to his webcam in 2008 for ‘The Living Room Series’, which led to Youtube stardom with the help of Alex Day aka ‘Nerimon’ which skyrocketed Greg to international acclaim.  Since then, Greg has built upon this recognition through more EPs and a debut album (A Word In Edgeways), and is now on the eve of the release of his brand new LP Chase The Sun (Pre-order April 14).
