Music was always a passion of mine since the age of four when I jumped on my family's Kawai grand piano and smashed away the best a four year old knew how. It was in upstate New York where the home was filled with classical greats, the Beatles catalogue and jazz horn playing giants such as Miles Davis. My mother was a classically trained pianist, my father a trumpet soloist for the drum and bugle corp and my great grandfather a touring violinist first for the British army band and then solo across Europe and Asia. So music has always had deep roots in my heart. It's like the air I breathe, crucial to my survival. I've been down the road of writing and playing hip-hop music, evolving into a pop-rock singer/songwriter. I hope you will join me on my musical journey not only as passengers but participants in the Shayne Holland Band experience.
