Nashon Holloway Live at NHBCSaturday Aug 26 10:00pm
72 E. 8th Street
Nashon Holloway is a singer-songwriter with a five-octave range whose credit is live performance. Residing in Chicago, Holloway performs unparalleled in any genre, including classical music. For this reason, her compositions attract audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Be it for her accomplished skill as a solo guitarist and vocalist, her intimate unplugged jazz sessions or her accredited funk and rock band, Holloway’s presence invites listeners to feel free, to heal, and to participate. Performance credits include features on The Oprah Winfrey Show with David Foster, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Taste of Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Qatar. Nashon is a one-of-a-kind singer/songwriter with a warm, earthy and edgy style. Due to her wide-ranging repertoire and love of love and community, she plays basements, dive bars, churches, pride parades, palaces, funerals, festivals, hospitals, galas, concerts, weddings, living rooms and street corners. This concept of har
mony as a lifestyle, along with a killer band of trained musicians (Rufus Ferguson: keys, Bryan Blowers: guitar, Neal Conway: Bass, Kellen Boersma: bass, Keith Hall: Drums, Mike Porter: drums) is perhaps what makes Holloway’s audience one that is naturally diverse.
In addition to being a recording and performing artist (and avid supporter of independent musicians), she teaches private voice to children in the states and visits alternative schools, juvenile homes, churches and hospitals in an effort to collaborate with students of all ages on music as healing, communication and artistic therapy. Nashon is a one-of-a-kind singer/songwriter with an artistic, jazzy style and relevant essence born of authenticity.
