Sam Holt, former guitarist and singer/songwriter for national touring band Outformation is putting his own name front and center in the newly formed Sam Holt Band.
Known for his unique association with Widespread Panic, Sam’s guitar skills have thrilled fans for close to a decade. “I’ve always loved that chicken pickin’ country style, but I also like to play with a pretty heavy tone that’s closer to hard rock and even metal,” says Holt.
The addition of the pedal steel guitar to The Sam Holt Band is adding different textures and colors to the wealth of original music Sam has written. He explains, “I’ve always wanted to have a pedal steel guitar in the band. It opens up possibilities in some of my previous songs, and inspires ideas for new ones.”
Speaking of his new band mates Sam says, “These guys are burning players, and I trust them in any musical situation.” The Sam Holt Band is quickly gathering a loyal following throughout Colorado.
