Born April 1961 in NYC, E.G.Holmes discovered singing at a very young age and went on to sing solos in several elementary school choirs. At age eleven, E.G. was chosen to sing with the Metropolitan Opera Guild in a production of La Boheme and landed a small solo. About that same time E.G. picked up some pointers on playing piano by a kind neighbor and from there began to compose songs and music. (Music styles include: Rock, Jazz, Blues, Country, Classical, Punk, Adult Contemporary, and Adult Alternative – influenced by artists cross many genres)
Around the age of twenty and with a pile of songs on tape, he met Steeley Dan legend – Donald Fagen who kindly listened and critiqued many songs for him and gave him some new ways to think about writing / composing. Putting music on hold for career and family E.G. emerged in 2009 and began collaborating on many original projects with musicians, singers, songwriters, lyricists, and producers from all around the world.
With songs appearing on about a half dozen albums, in early 2011, E.G. reached out to singer David Vanden Enden to have him sing a new song being written called “The Rumors”. Liking the direction, and the voice, E.G. asked David if he was interested in doing a full album of songs. Once David committed to the project E.G. needed a top producer and turned to his friend and fellow songwriter, musician and producer: Raul Rodriguez Jr (FIG Sounds Studio – Miami, FL) A year and a half after the initial idea E.G. Holmes and company are ready to release his first full album of originals with a release date of February 1, 2013 titled “Wonderful You”.
