Unseen Recordings #014: Lonnie Holley
Filmed at JazzHouse, in Copenhagen, Denmark. 
Lonnie Holley is an American visual artist and musician who was born on February 10, 1950 in Birmingham, Alabama.

“Keeping a Record of It” (Dust-to-Digital, 2013) is the follow-up to Lonnie Holley’s debut album, “Just Before Music.” Guest performers include Cole Alexander from the Black Lips, Bradford Cox from Deerhunter, and visual artist Lillian Blades.

“In the early 2000s, Holley’s music caught the attention of Matt Arnett, the son of art collector Bill Arnett, who has been collecting Holley’s art since the 1980s. In 2010, Matt set up an impromptu performance by Holley at his home for Dust-to-Digital founder, Lance Ledbetter. Deeply moved by Holley’s keyboard playing and singing, Ledbetter insisted on getting Holley into a recording studio as soon as possible. The result was the album Just Before Music, which features Holley’s first studio recordings made in 2010 and 2011.”
