Shayne Holland Band

Supersonic Flight

Shayne Holland’s new effort “Supersonic Flight” is a Mach leap forward for this young rock singer from the Boston area.  The title track leads off the album, establishing the firm and aggressive rock and roll stance of Holland’s backing band, which steadily supports, if not incites, him through the entire album.  Indeed, with only limited time to record Supersonic Flight, the recording sessions fuel the album with an urgency that reflects Holland’s own passion, creating a focus that’s easy to hear and a raw energy that powers Holland’s songs, which are, without exception, among the best he’s ever written.  

The Future Is A Cartoon World

Shayne Holland's brand new full length album "The Future Is A Cartoon World", paints multi-layered strokes of pop-rock music in the bright, hook-laden opening track "The Future Is A Cartoon World" to the hopeful ballad "Don't Close Your Eyes"; from the dance beat infused rocker "Big Bang" to the captivating, heartening and anthemic "Sisters and Brothers". 

Produced by Milt Reder and Shayne Holland, The Future Is A Cartoon World features 11 original tracks that were assembled by some of the best musicians in the industry including Dave Mattacks on drums who's recording and session work includes such legends as Paul McCartney; Brad Hallen on bass who's played for Aimee Mann, Susan Tedeschi, Ministry and Mike Welch; and Milt Reder on guitars who has played for Bo Diddley, Susan Tedeschi and Robin Lane.

Unconditional

Shayne Holland expands upon the melodic, empassioned, pop-rock tapestry woven in his debut E.P. "Rain", with his first full length CD Unconditional. Though similar to it's predecessor in it's catchy melodies, and well orchestrated arrangements, Unconditonal is a more mature body of work, that demonstrates the artist's growth as both song writer and composer. From the immediately addictive title track "Unconditional" to the more somber and introspective "Heartache", the ten songs on Unconditional once again hold the listener with their melodic potency, and undeniable potential mass-market appeal.

Put simply, Unconditional is an uplifiting, addictive CD, whose vast selection of extremely memorable pop songs will draw you in, and demand repeat listenings. Shayne Holland has drawn on the best of what popular music has had to offer over the past thirty years, adapted it to his own easaily identifiable style, and condensed into one CD.

Rain

Recorded from March through May of 2001, the debut e.p. "RAIN" from New England born singer/songwriter Shayne Holland is an appealing blend of contemporary, alternative rock and melodic pop. Released as a precursor to the full length release "Unconditional", the "RAIN" e.p. consists of four original tracks aimed at alternative and aor radio. The title track "Rain" as well as "Struck By You", "I Feel Light", and "Turn Off The World", features performances by such musical dignitaries as Paul McCartney drummer Dave Mattacks, Ministry bassist Brad Hallen, and Four Piece Suit's Milt Reder on guitar.
