By Greg Holden
First hearing the yearning and inebriated message of 'Bar On A' in Preston's 'The Mad Ferret', before its recorded release on Greg Holden's latest album; I knew that such of Holden's Little-Lancashire-To-Big-Apple musical anecdotes would captivate current fans, and create new ones. 'I Don't Believe You' has succeeded in facilitating some of contemporary prestigious names such as Jesca Hoop and Bob Dylan's producer Tony Berg. Perhaps marking the momentum with which Greg seems to be budding in musical success.
The album reflects the influences of a Dylan-esque working class struggle towards contentment and collects existential love stories of home, New York and music. And, while it doesn't disappoint in the intelligent, artistic angst of Greg's previous album; it also delivers a more pleasing anti-'Industry' flair such as in the title track 'I Don't Believe You'.
All you recently (or always) taken with the charms Greg Holden can catch him serenading the crowds at Royal Park Cellars on 27th April.
