From the Heart
With a unique diversity of his own from his new pop songs to the oldies smooth-matinee-idol ballads to his roots in jazz, Dave Holden is best described as an innovative original. From The Heart is an album of original songs for listeners to discover a little taste of Dave Holden's diverse style and talent. Since playing to all audiences of all ages through the years, Dave Holden's style is best described as diverse. His history begins with singing and playing jazz on his Hammond B3 organ (styled after organist Jimmy Smith) to singing and playing R&B of the 50s, 60s, and 70s on his synthesizers and keyboards to ballad singing of a 'today' Nat King Cole on grand piano. This album expresses his style of pop songs - keeping the communications open to all ages. Some of these originals are a collaboration of Dave and his sons, David Jr. and Eric. One of the love songs, We Begin Our Lives Together was written by Dave for his granddaugther, Treona, and sung by Dave and son David Jr. Hangin On For You was inspired by a dear friend Laurie. Let's Save The Kids is a pop song inspired by Dave's concern for kids all over the world after the Columbine tragedy. Dave proudly expresses his desire to please just about everyone in his audience - 'IF you listen long enough you will hear a song you like - from jazz, oldies, R&B to pop. Music is the universal language and I like to 'talk' to everyone in a language they can understand!' Dave will entice you with his diversity in music and singing style.
