“Blending the cool blues-rock of acts like The Black Keys and North Mississippi Allstars with a Memphis soul sound, Holiday captures the mood and feel of the place where he now resides.”


“Tony Holiday didn’t gather a bunch of blues artists to perform on his upcoming album, Motel Mississippi, like he did on his 2019 Porch Sessions album.

“It’s not the porch concept,” says the blues harpist/singer. “It’s just me. It’s just my record. But it was written by A.J. Fullerton. There are a couple of covers.”

And Holiday co-wrote a song with Victor Wainwright. “But I really chalk it up to A.J. Fullerton, a really cool artist out of Colorado. He moved to Memphis about a year ago.”

“Singer-songwriter Tony Holiday is following up 2020’s Soul Service with a strong sophomore effort, Motel Mississippi. A collaboration between Holiday, guitarist/songwriter A.J. Fullerton, and guitarist/producer Dave Gross (who shared production duties with Fullerton), the album is at once Delta blues, Memphis soul, North Mississippi hill country, and juke joint stomper. It is only reasonable that Motel Mississippi was recorded at Zebra Ranch, the studio of the legendary Jim Dickinson (The Rolling Stones, Big Star).”
