Join my community of patrons. Thank you!

A regular stream of income from fans and patrons around the world really helps to keep my projects ticking over. Any money you send me will go into to the pot (and I am not talking about the smokeable type!) I am talking about 'the magic pot' that contains all the cash needed to get things done!

Things like:
- Recording studio time
- Pro Mastering of releases
- Renewing websites that host my music
- Helping me get a new bit of kit or replace broken items
- Keeping me alive with food, or keeping me mobile with petrol in the car when I am otherwise flat-broke! (this seriously happens! A lot! )

YOUR money helps keep me at it, doing the music that you enjoy!

What do YOU get for your money?
  • Super-Karma bonus points!
  • Access to a feed of patron-only content (past and new posts / videos)
  • Early access to new releases before official launch
  • Early access to some of the other content I make

    Feel free to increase your contribution amount, if you wish to. Thanks! Dave




I regularly go live, find me on the main platforms here: DaveHolmes.Live

Hey! I am Dave Holmes, a musician and producer from the UK. I play covers and original songs in a variety of musical styles, through Folk, Blues, Soul and Brazilian Music.

My artist profile on my Record Label, Soul Tonic

My speciality is performing authentic sounding Bossa Nova and MPB classics on guitar, with vocals in Portuguese and English. I also play percussion within the UK samba community. 

Here is a Bossa Nova gig I played in Recife, Brazil:

My next album, in production, will be released with a live show in Brazil and I am working with a Brazilian artist to create an 'arts experience' for the release.

I've been working on the tracks for a very long time, I have a few albums worth of material in my archives, but only now do I have the right circumstances and team to finish this body of work in a professional way.

As a Patron, you will be kept up to date with the recordings via a secret Soundcloud link, to hear the tracks as each one is finished and a free album emailed or sent to you after it is all done, with behind the scenes videos and photos available as the project unfolds. You will also receive updates on my performances in UK or elsewhere.

I release my own music on my Soul Tonic label and it's available on all digital platforms via my online distributor. I plan to also make professionally produced physical media to distribute my label's releases in small batches to independent record stores around the world. 

My albums are recorded at, and with help from, studios in UK, Portugal, Brazil, France and Belgium.

Soul Tonic Ltd

I am Director of Soul Tonic Ltd, a UK company dedicated to enriching lives through Arts, Culture and Entertainment. My company releases original music and manages artists, including myself. I also organise professional Samba percussion shows for another client, a percussion band leader, here in the UK.
