THE CULT OF HOLLEY
Danny Holley began his piano career as a bit of a wunderkind but chose the club circuit over a serious concert career. After stints in Chattanooga and his hometown of Biloxi, Mississippi he was summoned by two club owners on vacation from Detroit to play in the Motor City. He played the Detroit and Windsor supper club circuit for several years before teaching music and then being swayed into playing and directing music at a church in the area. He has a website where songs and albums can be sampled and purchased. My uploads follow at the foot of this post.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
