"Miami Beach resident Aaron Holder has made a name for himself in the Jewish community with his music for a few years. Now, he has his own debut album. Holder, 24, said his recently released album "Something Stronger" expands the boundaries between Jewish and mainstream music by using elements of folk, pop, country, rock and a hint of reggae laced with a deeply spiritual vibe. His musical influences for the album include Mumford & Sons, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, The Beatles, Matisyahu, One Republic, Josh Groban, Bruce Springsteen and Shlomo Carlebach. Holder has performed songs for the Jewish community and even competed in the singing competition "A Jewish Star." He feels the album is a culmination of his musical growth. "It's very surreal because I was 18 when I first picked up a guitar and started writing songs and it was my dream to be able to just play for people," he said. "I feel blessed o have the album out because not many people are able to achieve this." .... go to link
