VIZZTONE Recording Artist, Vocalist and Harmonica player Tony Holiday, hailing out of Memphis Tennessee, is a rising force on the Blues and Harmonica Scene both in the USA and Europe. Rapidly emerging as a star on the international blues scene., he has been recognized by blues legends like Charlie Musselwhite and Rick Estrin as one of the finest up-and-comers in the game right now and is steadily building his own legend one gig at a time.
Holiday is often referred to as a traditionalist in the approach of his harmonica playing, influenced by harmonica giants like Big Walter Horton, Little Walter Jacobs, Kim Wilson, and James Cotton.
Tony plays up to 200 gigs a year across the US and has brilliantly recorded his latest album "Porch Sessions" in between them, on the actual porches of some of the blue’s best-known musicians. Released on the VizzTone label, "Porch Sessions" is reminiscent of Alan Lomax’s landmark field recordings and the live recordings that have surfaced from Chicago’s famed Maxwell Street era over the years. It is all about the real blues captured live as it happens.
