Fabian Holland is a songwriter who gets right to the heart of the human condition in a disarmingly subtle way.
Less than 18 months after releasing his widely applauded self-titled debut CD, the canal boat-dwelling musician is back with A Day Like Tomorrow, an album of nine compelling original songs segueing seamlessly with strong interpretations of two traditional tracks and further showcasing his distinctive voice and outstanding guitar playing.
Unusual teamwork features in this classy release with the introduction of edgy drums, percussion and vocals from the acclaimed Fred Claridge, nurturing a rich, powerful sound and a rare pairing on the roots scene.
Lyrically evocative , sometimes moody and melancholic, Holland’s unadorned music has a flip side of songs of upbeat, wry humour but always acutely observed – songs of people and places, strangers and kin, human frailties and foibles–sensitive sonic snapshots producing perfect visual imagery, by turns unsettling and reassuring.
Here’s Fabian performing “Home” last year on a visit to our friends Brooklands Radio
And here he is in Wigan performing “The River”
