Eddie's "Hey There Lonely Girl" is one of the top selling and best remembered romantic ballads of all time. Exhilarating soul ballad king, Eddie Holman, is on the scene with a great, live show featuring his spectacular million selling gold record "Hey There Lonely Girl" showcasing the full worth of his vocal range. No one need to be lonely anymore. Ably and strikingly backed by the Eddie Holman Band, Holman has found the perfect match of musicians to bring out the powerful vocals qualities of his crystal-clear, yet emotive instrument. Stylish vocals have been synonymous with Eddie Holman. Holman's rich and powerful vocals, as distinctive as ever, using that unique range which remains the envy of many.

Holman has one of the finest tenor voices ever to emerge from Philadelphia, and his rich soaring falsetto, the signature of the Holman persona always strikes new highs.

Eddie Holman is a very special soul stylist, a singer about whom British writer, Tony Cummings has said: "Eddie Holman's voice, an astonishing precision instrument which leap octaves with speed of mercury and bend notes into shapes unimagined by lesser singers, has assured its possessor a place in history." Holman has typical soul singer roots; singing gospel in church beginning at age two. Born of musical family in Norfolk, Virginia, he was inspired and taught to sing by his mother, learned piano and guitar and wrote original songs. Then New York City beckoned and he moved north at the age of five. Says Eddie, thatís where I gained my first exposure to show business.

Eddie attended Victoria school of Music and Art in New York City. As 'Little Eddie Holman, he appeared in Off-Broadway shows and concerts at Carnegie Hall in-addition was a regular on NBC-TV's "The Children's Hour" and he won amateur shows at the Apollo Theater.

He later moved to the City of Music, Philadelphia. This turning point was the beginning of a new career. Eddie wrote, produced and recorded in Philadelphia while attending Overbrook High School. Success as a recording artist came with his first national release while still a freshman at Cheyney State University. He's had a string of national and international hits, starting with "This Can't Be True Girl" which as a point of fact, was his first charted song. "This Can't Be True, Girl" was significant not only because it was Eddie's first hit but, it was unarguably the archetype on records of the era, says writer Tony Cummings." Prior to "Hey There Lonely Girl" Eddie's recorded repertoire included, "Am I A Loser, From The Start", "I Love You" and "All In The Game", Other popular recordings included "Don't Stop Now", "Stay Mine For Heaven Sake" and "I'll Cry 1,000 Tears".

The vocalist I learned most from are Nat 'King' Cole and Jackie Wilson." If you ever ask Eddie where he acquired his talent, he will no doubt tell you that he was inspired and guided by God's divine power.

The achievement of a long held ambition. Although Eddie has in past worked and will continue to work, within secular field of popular music, he has always been a religious man and in fact an ordained Christian Minister of the Baptist Church. To publicly testify his faith he formed his own company, Agape Records, for the U.S. release of his first gospel album/CD, all of which was written, arranged and produced by Eddie and recorded in Philadelphia with some of the top session men that accompanied many of his previous releases.

"LONELY GIRL" made a band a necessity." Now he travels internationally with the Eddie Holman Band. He's appeared in concert in Europe and Japan many times where he's extremely popular and his popularity never ceases, he remains a much loved artist and still something of an idol and legend. On the strength of "Lonely Girl" Eddie has been able to present an image of class and the ability to be himself.
