Further Details

Si Holmes combines his loves of Country, Bluegrass, Motown and Funk to create a retro but innovative sound. There's some folk and a bit of cajun, lots of thumping rhythms and the odd melancholy moment. He takes inspiration from Johnny Cash, Ryan Adams and Bill Withers and slaps his own mark on a rocking, soulful, foot stomping fusion of styles. With acoustic/electric guitar, percussion, effects and his own powerful vocals he takes his audience on a journey through unusual covers and interesting original songs. Si has been a professional singer/songwriter for the last ten years, touring throughout Europe and the UK, and he has supported the likes of Seth Lakeman, Martin Harley and Frank Turner.

Si writes original music with a Blues, American, Country sound. His sets usually include his original songs, mixed with covers of popular Blues, Soul, Jazz, Rock n Roll and Country songs.

"I cover music from the 50's through to modern pop songs and I love all genres from Jazz, Blues and Soul to Rock n Roll and Country. In my sets I include songs from Bruce Springsteen, Ray Charles, Dolly Parton, Sam Cooke, Nina Simone, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley as well as my own versions of modern pop songs like Umbrella, Shut Up and Dance and Chained to the Rhythm. There's something for everyone!"
