Singer and songwriter Greg Holden has made a name for himself as an independent artist for the past several years, releasing two albums, 2009’s A Word in Edgeways and 2011’s I Don’t Believe You. His song “The Lost Boy” — a poetic rumination inspired by a Dave Eggers’ novel about a Sudanese refugee — 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. Holden also earned recognition 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. Now signed to Warner Bros. Records, the Scottish-born, England-bred, New York-based artist has just released his uplifting new single “Hold On Tight” at the end of January, and will be followed by the April release of a full-length album Chase the Sun, which is filled with passionate, purpose-driven rock songs that brim with tough, vibrant energy and showcase Holden’s lean, literate songwriting.
