The self-titled EP 'Holmes' opens a new chapter of songwriting to the Sheffield based singer/songwriter who has been actively involved in recording and producing music since 2010.
Formerly front man of the energetic rock band The Last Standing, this EP demonstrates a far more considered, sensitive approach to songwriting that draws inspiration from his Irish roots as well as folk-rock legends such as Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young.
This inspiration is particularly apparent in track such as 'The Greenest Isle', referencing events witnessed in Northern Ireland as a child.
Holmesy's unique writing style combines well considered, honest lyrics drawn from first hand experience with an unconventional acoustic guitar playing technique to create an emotional and dramatic ambiance.
All his songs are independently written, recorded and self-produced
