The folk music singer Greg Holden has numerous international hits in his repertoire, thanks in part to his activity on platforms such as YouTube where he could showcase his musical talent.
Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, but now living in New York, he began recording his own songs at home, and in 2009 he released his first album, A Word in Edgeways, and moved to the States in search of greater opportunities. Part of his success comes from a series of videos, entitled Not My Living Room Tour, in which the musician went to his fans' houses to play live for them.
Global success arrived with Phillip Phillips, winner of the eleventh edition of American Idol, with whom he wrote the song Home, which sold over 5 million copies. But he was not a complete stranger to fame, since in 2011 he released a charity single entitled The Lost Boy.
In 2015, he brought out his studio album Chase the Sun, which included Boys in the Street, a track that deals with homosexuality and how it is treated in many families. This record flooded the social media with the hashtag #boysinthestreet with celebrities such as Cher and Michael Bublé getting involved.
