For those who have been following me @thedaveholland on Twitter, Facebook or Myspace probably know a new website has been under construction for some time. Well, it’s finally here. Finally. I think it gives everyone a good idea of who I am as an artist, what I have done so far and most importantly — where I intend to go.
Along with the launch of the site, I am also launching my new Archive Series. Volume. 1 is a collection of live quintet performances from our world tour in 2007. To celebrate, we’re offering a 320 KBPS MP3 download of the record for $1 for 1 week (ending 2/15). The album is 1 hour long so with all the 1’s – $1 seemed fitting. You can stream it for free too and share it with friends. So if you like it, please considering buying a copy!
Beyond that is a good deal to explore. We have begun the process of building a comprehensive discography. Most entries have audio clips – about 2 or so hours worth of music in total. Almost all of my compositions are available for download as PDFs — lead sheets, quintet scores, and big band scores w/ transposed parts, so far. Sextet and Octet music is on the way too. There are also selected solo transcriptions.
Given that the site is new, there are bound to be things which need to be tweaked, fixed or filled in. If you see anything that we need to correct or perhaps could be made better, please don’t hesitate to let my team know – email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, I would like to thank Greg Ipp at We Are Familiar and Garrett Shelton at Shelton Media Works for their hard work in building the site, and to my manager, Louise Holland, for her continued guidance. As always, thanks to my wife, Clare, who has always been such an important partner and adviser in my musical journey.
