James Holt, a singer/songwriter from Manchester is receiving widespread attention for his unique blend of alternative rock and folk.
The twenty-two year old has produced a collection of songs which belie his age. This is a solo record in the truest sense of the phrase, with Holt having composed the songs, played all of the instruments and recorded and mixed the EP. James has already garnered the attention of world-renowned producer Brian Eno who described his music as “Brisk, funny, exciting. Great drumming….fresh and exciting to listen to”.
James performs regularly, both solo and with a band, at venues and festivals in towns and cities across the UK and recently performed solo at the Royal Albert Hall for the Music for Youth Proms 2015. He has received airplay on BBC Manchester and BBC Lancashire, Radio X, BBC Radio 6 and has been featured numerous times on Fresh On the Net’s FRESH FAVES. He has also received coverage on ‘Never Enough Notes’, The Unsigned Guide and the Manchester Evening News.
