About the artist

As a five-time winner of Dallas Observer Music Awards (three of them for Musician Of The Year), Christopher Holt has played in dozens of acclaimed bands in the DFW area over the past 20 years, including Sorta, The Slack, Olospo, Salim Nourallah and many others. This very busy man is an in-demand multi-instrumentalist, a songwriter fronting his own bands, and a dedicated teacher and mentor to budding musicians across the metroplex — all while being a husband and father of three. Since 2015, he has been a touring guitarist for the legendary Don Henley.

In 2016, State Fair Records released Christopher Holt’s third solo record, Stargazer, a 22-track double vinyl set featuring all-new original material, with most of the parts played by Holt himself. It’s a stylistic mix of melodic power-pop, lilting folk whimsy, psychedelic glam stomps, slinky prog-rock, and simple organic balladry, resulting in a sound that is simultaneously both modern and classic.
