In another life, Eric Holland made his living as a full time tennis pro, applying his trade in swanky resorts. He traveled, from Asia to Spain to the Caribbean and in between, never settling for long, absorbing different cultures and languages. The diversity he encountered left an impression. So did the racism and discrimination he witnessed that wasn’t limited by borders or contained by natural boundaries.

Eric spent a decade teaching English as a Second Language, instructing and mentoring students more comfortable speaking their native Hindi, Mandarin or Spanish than English. There was always a guitar and a keyboard in his classroom. Music was always at the core of his teaching; the universal language seemed to tear down walls. A child reluctant to speak in class had no problem learning (and singing) Hey Jude.

Holland’s life was interrupted when he lost a house to a wildfire in Central Arizona. He decided to seek a rebirth – in Mexico. He now lives and performs his music full time in San Carlos, Sonora.

Soy un Cantautor que se presenta y compone sus Historias Musicales en Sonora, México, donde pasa la mayor parte del tiempo. La música oportuna a nuestros tiempos y la inspiración de Eric surge de sus experiencias enseñando Inglés a estudiantes extranjeros en los Estados Unidos, y ello se yuxtapone con la libertad racial que finalmente se está formando en América; por ejemplo la actual Reforma Legislativa Migratoria de Obama: la "Dream Act" The Dreamers" (La "Ley Ahelo" Los soñadores); asimismo la película "Lincoln: el fin de la esclavitud"; también el Aniversario de Rosa Parks.

Never far from his mind are his ESL students that inspired his poetry and the trials of the immigrants in the southwest that inform his music.
