Information & Band Application:

Hello all musicians! My name is Holdyn Barder and I am an Independent Nashville Recording Artist and a BMI Songwriter. I am currently working with artist consultants within the country music industry and am on a quick track to breaking in the Nashville scene within the next two years. To help make that dream happen, I need some really awesome and passionate musicians who are ready to grind out some good ole southern rock/country music and tour this Spring / Summer 2019.

If interested, please contact me via my website (HoldynBarder[dot com]) under the "CONTACT" tab.

I am currently looking for a lead guitarist, a percussionist, and a bassist. As the need arises, I will also be looking for backup vocals, possibly rhythm guitar, and a steel/harmonica player. You may Google search my name (Holdyn Barder) to find links to my other social media sites and you may find them on my website, too.

Looking for awesome band members willing to play around the regional Philly area and possibly country festivals and artist showcases in Nashville and beyond. With debut music set to release this year, this is going to be one hell of a ride! Who's ready to tag along?

Artist Bio via Spotify:

There is nothing stopping this Houston-born and Philly-raised artist from becoming the next household name in country music. A passionate singer and songwriter who brings incredible energy and professionalism beyond his twenty years through all his performances, Holdyn Barder is on a fast track to stardom. His desire to combine long tradition and modern progressivism with his own flavor is what makes Holdyn’s disposition unique.

He began to gain significant momentum in the summer of 2018 when he performed at the Jersey Shore's hottest venues. In August 2018, Holdyn was sent to Music City to produce his first single, a cover of "She Got the Best of Me" (originally cut by Luke Combs) with the help of former band leader and bassist for Chris Lane, Sid Menon. This release helped Holdyn rapidly achieve the #1 position on ReverbNation’s local country charts in the Lehigh Valley in December of 2018.

While in Nashville, Holdyn performed at Robert’s Western World with Alan Jackson band members and partnered up with 'Nash Next 2018’ finalist, Gracie Carol, at the Grand Ole Opry Backstage Grill. Holdyn is just beginning to taste what the future has in store for him. With debut music and high-energy concerts scheduled to be released and to be announced in the spring of 2019, be sure to keep your ears and eyes peeled for Holdyn Barder.

Can't wait to hear from you! Hope you had a wonderful holiday season, Happy New Year, and let's get ready to rock the house!
