Holley has released three albums to date and is often described as an outsider artist and visionary musician, with his music blending elements of blues, soul, and gospel music. His style is considered unorthodox, but has gained a dedicated following from critics and fans alike.

Oh Me, Oh My was produced in collaboration with Jacknife Lee, speaking on the recording process for the record Holley states “My art and my music are always closely tied to what is happening around me, and the last few years have given me a lot to thoughtsmith about. When I listen back to these songs I can feel the times we were living through. I’m deeply appreciative of the collaborators, especially Jacknife, who helped the songs take shape and really inspired me to dig deeper within myself.

Oh Me, Oh My‘s title track featuring Michael Stipe is out now on all major streaming platforms.
