From New York comes an amazing songwriter/musician songwriter/musician known as E.G. Holmes. After many years in the songwriting trenches,
and after a chance run in with Donald Fagan of Steely Dan - Holmes teamed up with vocalist
David Enden for his latest release to date known as “Wonderful You” in 2012.
Songs available on CD Baby:
I always listen to the opening track extremely carefully. It’s the opening track the artist has personally selected to
hit your ears first and foremost. The opening track "The Rumors” sets the stage rather well for a modern day Jazz/Pop
CD like this. It was a passionate intro piece that stuck in my head with a brilliantly delivered with a richly woven
Contemporary Jazz texture with melodies that have serious melodic staying power.
Music will remind you of many classic Jazz singer of the past like Nat King Cole and even the master Frank Sinatra.
But there’ an undeniable Pop influence there as well like from James Taylor, Josh Grobin, and John Hiatt. To be
honest I can’t say enough about Holmes’ writing style and vocal appeal of Enden.
A far as Enden goes: Rather than
showboat, he sings a song the way it’s supposed to be sung – from the heart. E.G Holmes provides the perfect
musical landscape for this vocal instrument. “Wonderful You” features a full band compliment and captures a
very pure and genuine big city night sound that is classic Pop Jazz and will touch the listener both emotionally
and spiritually. E.G Holmes has a sound that favors many Broadway giants of the past yet with a modern day
conservative pop feel. It’s simple yet brilliant. I’ve never heard an artist so skillfully combine so many
genres’ into one unique sound. Weather this is by design or simply by accident it’s amazing.
The songs that stuck with me the most were “Mysterious” and the title track.
The Rumors /
Wonderful You /
Tonight Everything Changes /
Hot Blooded 4u /
I Love the Night /
Last Regret /
Pills & Chardonnay /
If there was one word I would use to describe the tandem Holmes/Enden dream team it would be passion.
This CD will simply make your day a more entertaining place, but there is an undeniable soulful passion
beneath the performances that can’t be taught in any textbook. Together Holmes/Enden are the genuine article
vocalist/composer/performer, but getting back to Holmes. It’s obvious to me his primary goal as artist is to make
the world a better place one song at a time. He really deserves a lot of credit for bringing all this together.
He truly is a musical mastermind and a brilliant producer.
