Tim Holehouse (UK)
Tim Holehouse is one of the hardest-working musicians out there. For the past 16 years he has been touring the globe, like a stone gathering no moss has brought influences as varying to his sound today. Breaking the 250-300 gig mark most years (and currently has done more shows than his more famous friend Frank Turner who went solo at the same time as him), Tim leads somewhat of a nomadic existence, but for all intents and purposes, treats London as his home when not out plying his trade to international and domestic audiences.
Tim is equally prolific with his recording as he is with his travels, when not gigging his way round the US, Canada, Japan, Iceland, Australia or Europe, he has found the time to release 20 albums and countless split releases, often with artists he tours with.
Tim’s own sound is hugely varied too, often able to adapt to performing sets depending on the atmosphere of a show. He has been known to release folk, blues, experimental music and much more besides, often on a single tour. Tim’s songs come from a place of honesty and a keen ear for anything creative regardless of genre. His own philosophy is that, ‘if music is good, it’s just good, right?’
To get a feel for Tim’s wide and varied talent, check out the tracks below, and as Tim often quotes from one of his favourite films, ‘Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure’:
‘Be excellent to each other.”
