Thomas Holt - Singer/songwriter

Also known as The Amused Troubadour. I am an American musician from Richmond Virginia. I grew up in the metro Atlanta, Georgia area, and now I live in the city of Norfolk, Virginia.

My style stems from a variety of genres like Folk, Grunge Classic Rock, Alternative rock, and indie. Growing up, I listened to a lot of what was popular on alternative rock radios. I then began to listen to a lot of classic rock, oldies, metal, rap & hip hop, experimental, electronic, dance, and pop music. 

I write songs that don't all sound the same. Some are a little more folky than others, some are little more rock n roll than others. It's all about how I feel in the moment of writing the song.

I was one of those private singers at first. I'm not afraid to say most of my practice came from singing in an empty house after school, in the shower, or alone in the car on the way to work. I began experimenting with playing instruments at the late age of 19 and got hooked on the guitar. I didn't just want to learn how to play other artist's songs, I wanted to write my own. I yearned for a new outlet I could express myself from and songwriting just seemed right for me. I love the feeling I get after getting it out on stage, I feel fulfilled. I want to chase that for as long as I can.

I take on the stage name, "The Amused Troubadour" because of my love for the songwriting craft, and a willingness to find amusement in all my journey's endeavors. Also I like dressing sharp for an occasion and I think a guy with troubadour in his name should have a taste for things like that. I write songs about friendship, love, and overcoming my internal hardships. I intend to come out on the winning side.
