When you meet Kenny Holland, the first thing you’ll notice is his devilish smile and movie star good looks. But behind the choirboy facade is a brash, young retro rocker whose boundless energy and passion have made him a rapidly rising star, with an edgy, progressive catalogue – his music a brilliant blend of intricately woven wordplay, dark rhythmic beats and haunting harmonies, beneath searing guitar rifts and soul-filled vocals.
Born in Michigan, Kenny grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, where he would hone his skills as a singer/songwriter. He began performing publicly at age eight. By 16, he was already a household name on the local music scene, selling- out high school auditoriums and creating a buzz in the back alleys of Baseline. His clever lyrics and catchy hooks quickly earned him the respect and admiration of fans and critics alike. In 2012, Kenny released his first independent solo album "Heart & Keys” on iTunes. The album produced the singles "So What," "One Day At A Time," and "Backseat," announcing the arrival of this emerging pop/rock sensation. Ever the visionary, Kenny used covers on Vine to expand his growing fan base, six seconds at a time. They now number in the millions.
Kenny has performed in front of sold out audiences nationwide, sharing the stage with Demi Lovato, Aaron Carter, Rae Sremmurd, and The Summer Set, among others. He was a featured act on the 2014 Jack and Jack Tour. In 2015, he teamed up with Wesley Stromberg to form rock band, The Balcony, a collaboration that produced the red hot single “Fire.” The duo was featured on four of the most-attended stops of the 2015 DigiFest Tour.
Kenny is also a talented actor. He will soon make his big-screen debut in the independent feature “Saturday’s Warrior,” scheduled to hit theaters in 2016.
Meanwhile, Kenny is busy writing and producing new music for his upcoming EP, B.O.A.T.S., coming this spring.
“It will be edgier and deeper than my previous material, a noticeable shift from pop to rock, with an emphasis on making good music and revealing who I am as an artist and how I see things from my perspective.”
