Songwriter Nathan Pemberton grew up on Holiday Shores Court, a two-block stretch of road located on the Florida panhandle.
With breaking waves and sandy beaches nearby, he began playing piano at age seven and picked up the guitar several years later, leading to a number of memberships in teenage bands and college groups. The geography of his home turf continued to inspire his writing, though, and he launched Holiday Shores in his early twenties, rounding out the bands lineup with Josh Martin, Ryan O'Malley, and Peejay Perez de Alejo. The group made its studio debut in 2009 with the release of Columbusd the Whim, a collection of lo-fi, summery pop songs. ~ Andrew Leahey
