G. E. Holliday
From 808 Vampire
We are back in Atlanta today to get an earful of G. E. Holliday's recent single. The second track released from the 808 Vampire album, we get to hear what happens when an artist takes the alternative route. Growing up in American social housing as part of a single parent family led Holliday down a distinctive and treacherous path. With TV and film portraying icons of this society as criminals and scumbags we can only do so much to protect impressionable young people from this path.
Holliday didn't settle in school either. When he discovered music and went to college with a dream, even then the environment didn't suit him. I get it, it's not for everyone. Plus being part of a group of others who may have more self-esteem and encouragement behind them can give out an unfairly inadequate self-perception. When G. E. Holliday left college with nothing, he knew that music was still the right path for him. It was now when he decided to volunteer and work for various studios around Atlanta. His rewards have been many yet one thing he now has to show is a great album with music on international radio.
With a guitar and keyboard the music begins with a splashy rhythm. G. E. Holliday begins to sing. A reggae tempo breaks free with sunny chords breaking waves over strumming steel and inventive percussion patterns. Sultry melody in the vocal gives us an easy to remember chorus while the music builds and flows like rain on the busy road. Inspired and full of character, the music is instantly recognisable and enjoyable to listen to.
