Celebrate Tony Holiday's new album "Soul Service" at this special Album Release Party! There are many young players on the current international blues scene and Tony Holiday is one that stands out amongst the finest! Tony Holiday is a vocalist and harmonica player hailing from Memphis TN with long-standing ties to Salt Lake City, UT.
He has been recognized by peers such as Charlie Musselwhite and James Harman as a rising star in the blues community. Holiday included both Musselwhite and Harman, among many others, on his latest release of field recordings tilted "Tony Holiday’s Porch Sessions", on which Holiday and his partner Landon Stone, have criss-crossed the country recording famous blues musicians and playing with them on their front porches. Porch Sessions was released on the Vizztone Label in January 2019.
Holiday fearlessly crosses the line between traditional Blues and Soul and modern day Americana with brilliant writing, expressing Holiday’s poetic side and humor, touching on issues like Love, Heartache and Stories from Holiday’s traveling lifestyle. A combination of a family man and a road-dog, Holiday finds the balance in his life as well as his music.Keeping a tight leash on his vocal control and harmonica tone, Holiday has been named in the top 10 young harmonica players in the country via Rick Estrin and Blues Harmonica Player Forum.
