I really enjoyed this week’s show and loved chatting to Greg Holden, he seems like such a nice down to earth guy.
Greg has a really interesting story, things weren’t going great for him and he was about to give up music, when he was asked if he would contribute his song ‘Home’ to an American Idol finale. The artist who sang it, Philip Philips, went on to have the biggest selling American Idol winning song with it, selling an incredible 5 million copies, yup you read that right, FIVE MILLION copies.
I chat to Greg about all that and his latest album ‘Chase The Sun’.
