Fabian Holland …. “The future pulse of Folk Music.” (Acoustic Magazine)


Fabian started playing guitar at the age of seven, taught by his father who played guitar and harmonica. His early influences came from blues guys such as Sonny Boy Williamson, Muddy Waters, R.L Burnside and Son House. Fabian attended the Academy Of Contemporary Music in Guildford (UK), studying under the watchful guidance of the sadly missed guitar virtuoso Eric Roche. After his studies he moved to the mountains of the Abruzzo Region, Italy, where he spent four years developing his musical style, busking, gigging and composing.

Less than 18 months after his widely applauded self-titled debut CD in 2013, Fabian came back with A Day Like tomorrow, an album of nine compelling original songs segueing seamlessly with strong interpretations of two traditional tracks and further showcasing his distinctive voice and outstanding guitar playing.
Lyrically evocative, sometimes moody and melancholic, Holland’s unadorned music has a flip side of songs of upbeat, wry humour but always acutely observed - songs of people and places, strangers and kin, human frailties and foibles - sensitive sonic snapshots producing perfect visual imagery, by turns unsettling and reassuring.
