Holdawn is a 21 year old artist from Baltimore, Maryland. Holdawn makes passionate, painful and reflective music. He wants to reach people that have ever felt isolated, people who wanted to cure their loneliness with love. He wants to be a family for those without one, so his sound reflects that general idea. Holdawn takes inspiration from all different realms of the musical world, with standard rap like Nas or A Tribe Called Quest, R&B sounds of Toro Y Moi or Marvin Gaye and rock sounds of Coldplay and N.E.R.D. All in all, Holdawn just wants his listeners to know that they can have patience and hold on to something, because relief can be just around the corner. Give him a listen if you need a pick-me-up, he certainly won’t disappoint.
