Jett Holden makes a living at a call center in Elizabethton, Tennessee. When he’s not there, he’s at home singing tunes with a voice that will knock you completely off your feet.

 

Holden grew up in a musical family of singers and players of various instruments from drums to brass.

 

“I took to guitar after falling in love with songs by Tracy Chapman and Garth Brooks, like Fast Car and Thunder Rolls,” Holden says.

 

You can hear those influences, as well as his own unique approach, in his music. Combined with his unprecedented talent, what you get from Holden is a sound that, we think, will land him among legends.

"Toxic" - Britney Spears

"Hey Ya" - Outkast

"The Great Divide" - Luke Combs, Billy Strings

"The Joke" - Brandi Carlile

As if that voice was not enough; Holden is also a phenomenal songwriter. “Taxidermy” is a chilling response to the frustration and helplessness he feels in the face of the police brutality that is killing so many Black Americans.

 

“It gets treated like a trend on social media a lot, but little change is actually made,” says Holden. He is currently working on a second verse to the song and we look forward to sharing when it’s complete.
