Randall Holt is a long-time Austinite by way of Albuquerque, New Mexico. He performed extensively in the classical theater for many years before his move to Austin in 2007, whereupon he started bridging the gap between his classical training and rock and roll, jazz, and the experimental/noise scene.
In addition to his solo works, he has performed as a founding member of KNEST (Jonathan Horne, Thor Harris), HORNE+HOLT (Jonathan Horne, Randall Holt), Reverend Glasseye, Yann Tiersen, and has shared stages with such groups as Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra and Godspeed You! Black Emperor, among many others both in the states and internationally.
Scheduled for 2018:
RANDALL HOLT: INSIDE THE KINGDOM OF SPLENDOR AND MADNESS - CD/Cassette release, Spring
HORNE+HOLT: WIRES - Vinyl release, Summer
KNEST: HONORARY BACHELORS OF ARTS - Vinyl release, Fall
(All releases are courtesy of Self-Sabotage Records, Austin TX)
(ALSO: a whole ton of super-secret recording projects that you'll have to hear to believe!)
Randall Holt is a chef, cellist, and husband living in the East Austin community. You can find him reading at different coffee shops or East Side establishments, or with his Mad Formidable Wife, Katie (they got married in 2017!) playing card games and either eating or making fancy meals in their little Hobbit Home.
Hope to see you around. Say hello.
