Bio:

Indiana native and Chicago area favorite, Josh Holmes, melds guitar-driven rock and roll with insightful lyrics and no-holds-barred live performances. The dynamic performances vary in format from playing solo, to the high energy and sound of his full band shows. The band has been described as "impressively cohesive and a group beyond their years." Reviews like these, combined with an ever-growing fan base, it is no wonder that this project has left such a huge impression on his fans.

Singer/songwriter Holmes was raised on Motown and classic rock and roll. His musical style manages to reflect his varied influences including artists such as; Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly, Smokey Robinson, and the Temptations, while maintaining a modern sound. Part rock and roll troubadour and part guitar prodigy, the self-taught Holmes puts on energetic, eclectic, and extremely entertaining live performances. A typical show includes solid musicianship interspersed with humor, rock and roll history lessons, improvisations, and audience participation. Whether you catch Josh Holmes solo or with his band, you are guaranteed an exciting musical experience. It is these live performances that have made Josh Holmes a favorite throughout the Midwest.

Josh Holmes started touring and recording original music in 1998 releasing four CDs under his group name, The Josh Holmes Band, leading to thousands of CD sales.

November 2003 marked a change in the direction of Holmes when he released his first solo album under his own name, Josh Holmes, entitled, A Table 4 One. The launch was coordinated with a national radio market release, where it has been extremely well received with numerous songs added to radio's current rotation. A Table 4 One has created a buzz among the commercial radio market and has been picked up at popular Chicago, Indianapolis, New York, Tampa, Hawaii, San Diego and Atlanta commercial stations. This radio exposure, combined with the success of Josh's CD at popular internet music site has recently attracted Sony Pictures/ABC network to incorporate Josh's song "Greener On the Other Side" into the season finale of their popular series, "Beautiful People." While his current CD continues to make its way around the national market, his fans can be sure that Josh will be working on more original music for the future.
