E G Holmes writes songs across a wide range of genres bringing a little bit of everything to each new project. Styles include fast paced Pop tunes to heartfelt Alternative as well as Rock, Blues, Jazz, Classical, Country Rock, and more. Born 1961 in Flushing, NY Holmes was attracted to the piano at a young age and started composing music by age 10. Age 11 Holmes sang with the Metropolitan Opera Guild in an English language production of La Boheme, snagging the coveted kid solo of "I want a trumpet and a drum".
Age 20 Holmes had a chance opportunity to connect with Steely Dan Alum Donald Fagen who graciously reviewed a number of Holmes' recordings and and provided well regarded songwriting advice.
Joining the Northern Illinois rock band "Shinola" in the 1990's - early 2000's they performed their own take on cover tunes and later mixing in some originals. By 2009 Holmes was hard at writing and working with talented songwriters and musicians from around the world using Kompoz.com as a virtual studio.
Soon after Holmes was working on a song called The Rumors and connected with David Foster discovery - singer David Vanden Enden. Holmes first full album was released in 2013 titled Wonderful You featuring Vanden Enden's amazing vocals. Holmes continued releasing songs on various album projects for labels: Seamonster Sounds, SMG, and now with Bongo Boy Records. These days Holmes calls Bongo Boy Records home and on 4/2/2021 released his second full length album (First Songbook Album): TIME TO REST featuring Holmes and friends taking lead on vocals.
