Angel

“Angel” is a tune written by Eric Roche who was my tutor back in 2002.
“I was only 16 at the time but It wasn’t until years later when I realised how much of an influence he actually was on my music. Eric sadly passed away in 2005 which was a big shock at the time as he was only 37. Angel is a beautiful tune that Eric wrote for his sister and I love to play it on stage, I think it’s important to keep Eric’s music alive and make people aware of this amazingly talented musician.
Eric also shared my love of Lowden Guitars. In this video I play my beautiful F25 model.”

Recorded live at The Convent in Stroud May 2015.

Spring

Spring is on its way! - Fabian observes the sunny days spent in London. 

“I think there’s certain things us Brits can relate to in the spring when we get those first sunny days.”
Picnics, drink, love and bodily exposure all take their place in this uplifting song about the warmer days which are just around the corner.

Taken from the album 'A Day Like Tomorrow'

Fabian confesses, “When I was living in Bristol on my friends floors and sofas, I was busking to pay my way and I was feeling quite home sick, I really wanted to come back home but I felt I couldn’t until I had made something of myself. So this song is about that time and it’s also one of my few autobiographical songs because it’s very personal to me.” 
It’s another beautifully composed piece, packing the genuine emotional clout of being caught between homesickness and the need for independence and success on his own terms, with the lovely line, “My shoes are so worn they are walking themselves.”

Taken from the debut album Fabian Holland.

The River

From the album ‘A day like tomorrow',
The River documents the sad stories of some of the characters Fabian has met on the waterways. 
It’s easy to think of a narrow boat life as being idyllic, but there are people on the river with problems like everyone else. 
As Fabian points out, “Oh, Down by the river, You may find nothing but tit and tat, Here at the river, We all are just a bunch of river rats.”

Recorded live at The Convent in Stroud in May 2015, with Fred Claridge on Percussion.
