now a days he dances salsa, kicks doctors, and makes tons of pop and un-pop music. He will be touring solo in the Fall and continues to work on current solo records as well as his other band "These Violent Young Lovers" with Melissa Beminio. His latest release is "portugal". He lives with no regrets and his rabbit hazel in a physical house.

Holden Laurence
On his debut album, "Wild Empty Promises," Holden Laurence builds on the foundations of early alternative by combining elements of Mope-rock (The Cure), Post-punk (The Smiths), and New Wave (Echo & the Bunnymen) with Americana (Ryan Adams) and Modern Alternative (The Killers). Vintage synths, chorus-laden guitars, and steady grooves highlight an expansive sound that complements his vulnerable and vivid songwriting.

“It won’t be long before Holden Laurence becomes a household name hovering around the top of the list of Cleveland’s best. Holden is a double threat. He’s both an incredibly gifted musician technically and also a hell of a songwriter. These two factors create one powerful force that leaves tunes like ‘Broken Waltz’ rattling around in your brain long after last listen.” - Justin Markert, Cellar Door Cleveland

“‘Wild Empty Promises’ is a fantastic debut that blends mope-rock, post-punk and New Wave deftly... with its bittersweet tone and cinematic delivery.” - Eric Sandy, Cleveland Scene Magazine

“Throughout ‘Wild Empty Promises,’ Laurence mines the best of the Just Say Sire (Records) playbook; Echo & The Bunnymen, The Ocean Blue and The Smiths, shimmer throughout the set, as does an undercurrent of classic rock slow churned with Ryan Adams-style Americana. The melodies are huge and the musicianship is world class.” - Keith Creighton, Popdose.
