Jamie Holka is a solo finger-style guitarist from Niagara Falls NY. His style incorporates many layers to assimilate bass, drums, chords and melody. Switching between a Gibson L-5 and a Maton Michael Fix model, he’s able to create quite a diverse sound.
Jamie studied at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts and continued the study of jazz guitar long after his Berklee days. However, jazz is only a foundation for his multi-layered arrangements.
Jamie took 3rd place in the North American Rock Guitar Competition in 2006 and has been a support act for many classic artists such as Allan Holdsworth, Todd Rundgren, Michael McDonald, Steve Morse, Steve Miller, Little Feat, Kansas, Steve Kimoch, Adam Rafferty, and CCR. His arrangements span the likes of Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Steely Dan, Stevie Wonder, Super Tramp, Toto, the Beatles, the Cars, Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, the Bee Gee’s, the Stones, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Boz Scaggs and many one hit wonders.
