Singer/Songwriter Greg Holden gives Nashville fans an intimate performance at The Basement
Greg Holden and Nashville share a mutual appreciation for each other. Local radio station Lightning 100 was an early and ardent supporter making Music City a frequent tour stop. This time around, the venue is The Basement, a small intimate setting for this show which features Greg Holden, a guitar and a microphone. It’s possibly the next best thing to attending a house concert, making for a memorable night.
Touring in support of his latest release, the self-produced World War Me, Holden gives this crowd a sampling of his ample catalog including an impromptu request for “Bar on A” from 2012’s album I Don’t Believe You. “Nothing Changes,” “On the Run,” and “Something Beautiful,” all from the new album are intermingled with such familiar tunes as “Boys in the Street,” “Hold on Tight,” “The Lost Boy,” and of course “Home.”
Despite the obvious warm embrace he receives from the crowd, it’s apparent the self-deprecating Holden is much more at ease while the crowd is singing with him, and they do without needing encouragement. Without a band, there is really nothing between Greg Holden and the audience and it is clear from the very beginning that the songs and Greg himself resonate with this crowd. It is a satisfying experience all around.
Opening the show with a wonderful set of original songs was Nashville based singer-songwriter Rosi Golan along with Allie Moss. mid-way through her set, Rosi invited Davis Nash on stage to perform one of their newest, yet to be released songs “Right Now”.
