“While I thoroughly enjoy my adult career, I also enjoy taking some time to explore my musical roots, and the opportunity to write and create songs in the studio with my dad presented itself during the pandemic, and the results turned out more amazing than I ever could have imagined,” said Coxxx.“I really appreciate and want to thank AVN for nominating The Holdings’ Father & Son EP in the award category of Mainstream Venture of the Year, and my dad for presenting the opportunity to collaborate with him on these songs that took on a life of their own throughout the creative process. And thank you to everyone who has been there for me on my journey to where I am today. I’m so grateful for your support.”To find out more about The Holdings, visit TheHoldingsMusic.com, Twitter and Instagram, and find Father & Son – its single “Lock and Load” is featured on Relix Magazine’s Sept. ‘22 artist sampler playlist – is available via Spotify, SoundCloud and Bandcamp.
ABOUT THE HOLDINGS:
The Holdings is a new musical family project between David Haynes Holding Sr. & Jr. that officially launched in July 2022 with the release of the duo’s debut EP, Father & Son.
Haynes Holding (Sr.) is a talented guitarist/bassist that played in several different projects during the legendary late ‘70s/early ‘80s Athens, Georgia music scene that spawned REM and the B-52’s, releasing two albums with his band Dorothy’s Dream.
Inspired by his father, the younger Holding grew up in Atlanta with aspirations of rock stardom himself with the founding of The Last Relapse in early 2006 at the tender age of 16 years as the lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist. After a six-year run, a full-length album, Machine, and a couple hundred shows throughout the southeast U.S., the band decided to go on indefinite hiatus.
In 2020, Jr. and Sr. began working on music again – separately, then collaborating on songs together. Haynes Holding has since released five solo albums that convey a variety of music styles and genres, as well as two albums under the name Soci3ty. Meanwhile, David Holding has been writing and recording with a couple former members of The Last Relapse on a new project yet to be announced. For more info, visit TheHoldingsMusic.com.
