Greg Holden is a British-raised, LA-based singer/songwriter who has garnered recognition as an independent artist for the past several years. Holden is perhaps best known for writing the massive hit “Home” – the debut single for American Idol winner Phillip Phillips that sold five million tracks in the U.S. and earned Holden an ASCAP Pop Award. He’s also found success with “The Lost Boy” – a poetic rumination inspired by a Dave Eggers’ novel about a Sudanese refugee that hit No. 1 on iTunes in Holland, and raised over $50,000 for the Red Cross. Within two weeks of being featured on Sons of Anarchy, “The Lost Boy” sold 30,000 downloads in the U.S. and debuted at No. 36 on Billboard’s Rock chart.
His music has also been featured on notable television shows including Sons of Anarchy, Private Practice, and One Tree Hill. In addition to receiving praise from industry staples such as Cher, Tom Hanks, Josh Groban, Sara Bareilles, Michael Bublé, Zane Lowe, TIME, NPR, and more, Holden has racked up critical acclaim in the press with BuzzFeed hailing his “soaring, purpose-filled songs that carry real emotional weight,” Paste lauding his “clear vocals” and “expressive lyrics,” and Nylon applauding his unique ability to “actually touch the lives of another person with raw, emotional lyrical poetry.”
Opening for Greg Holden is local singer-songwriter Johan Sotelo! “Sotelo has the baby face of a Latin heartthrob and a voice that climbs notes with the agile aptitude of his primary influences, John Mayer and Ed Sheeren. His smooth tenor voice hits falsetto notes with a fluidity that make the listener long for more auditory sugar.” Monterey County Weekly
