Mark Proct, Austin music legend, has entered into an agreement with Holt to record Dangerous Eyes on the new Milligan Vaughan Project album, a single cut by Holt and Red Clay Roadhouse in 2016.
Edwin Holt caught a mad case of the blues about 30 years ago, and it hasn’t let go yet.
The East Texas native was a graduate of West Rusk where he spent most of his time around the band hall when he wasn’t at home listening to his father’s collection of 45’s to the tune of Sam Cooke, Little Milton, and the like.
Rose Picker Music is proud to announce Edwin Holt will soon begin a new album in Nashville, Tennessee. Under the Top Cat Label which carried Holt’s first album, the new work will be produced by Ross Holmes and recorded in Zach Brown’s Southern Ground Studio.
“It’s a long story, man.”
New London native Edwin Holt first got into music in college, a 20-something junior in South Dallas, the odd man out in an all-black group performing fulltime as either an opening act or pickup band for traveling Blues artists.
Bandana Media of Dallas, Texas is producing a documentary on the musical life of Edwin Holt. Covering thirty years of performing in out of the guettos of south Dallas, Holt has carved out a solid cornerstone within the blues community and continues to pave his way to fame around the world with his music. Be on the lookout for this film as it’s sure to hit home with blues lovers everywhere.
Holt began his musical career over twenty years ago in the ghettos of south Dallas opening for such legends as Bobby Blue Bland, Little Milton and Johnnie Taylor. Performing with an all black blues band haunting local juke joints, Holt earned his stripes at an early age putting him on a path that ended with Holt sharing the stage with B.B. King and the reverend Al Green himself.
On an evening in Uncertain, Texas, Holt along with some visiting pickers surrounded a campfire and created their own sound fusing soul, blues and bluegrass together. This new musical movement would turn Holt from his once traditional twelve piece band to what he refers to as a soulful roadhouse string band.
With a new mix of musicians as well as some original members, Holt continues to bring his new sound to fans and venues everywhere.
