Plentley Holmes | Authentic musical expression of what it means to be alive
Plentley Holmes is a self taught guitarist, pianist, and vocalist from Phillpsburg New Jersey. He is truly that rare artist whose work achieves both technical and emotional brilliance. Pentley's background in creative writing allows him to unite his musical talent with an authentic expression of what it means to be alive.
Not only the nephew of the inspirational heavyweight boxing champion Larry Holmes, Pentley is a fighter in his own right. In 2009 he survived a typically lethal ruptured brain aneurysm. His survival and recovery after 15 days in ICU only furthered his inborn passion with life and his place in the world as a musician.
Pentley's debut album "Rip Out My Heart," offers a beautifully endeared glimpse into the depths of these human experiences. Pentley's signature blend of contemporary folk and soul pop makes his music as easy on the ear as it is on the heart.
With new music forthcoming and the daring boldness to dream, Pentley is undoubtedly one to watch.
His new album Catacombs is out now!
