Yesterday we gave you the scoop on why songwriter Greg Holden is such a welcome new discovery. His songs are often profound; he doesn't shy away from providing social commentary or trying to say something important. It's something the Scottish born musician says he learned from American heroes like Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and Bruce Springsteen. "I don't really have a problem opening up and being a bit vulnerable and saying something I really believe in. Why else would I be doing this?"

In our stylish new Closed Set Session, Greg picked three songs from his most recent album Chase The Sun that really represent this creative philosophy. "Hold On Tight", with its call for not taking life for granted, is a song about truly living in the moment...you never know when that moment will end. "Give It Away" was the result of an epiphany; Greg realized a lot of things he valued in life just weren't that important. And then there is "Boys in the Street", a beautiful, goose-bump inducing song he penned with a friend in mind. Stripped bare of visual and sonic embellishments, this short set showcases the simple power of a few chords, a great voice, memorable melodies, and thought-provoking lyrics.
