I'm Holley Rumbarger.
I was born into this world to play music, but more locationally, I was born in the south. My roots in
music link back to a rusty 1984 Jeep Grand Cherokee, a couple of Alison Krauss CDs, perhaps
a gas station frozen coke paired with some boiled peanuts, and the Mississippi sun dancing
through the windows into the back seat.
I like to think my music defines my experiences in love and life in the deep south but knows no
true genre. Perhaps something akin to folk or Americana. But I dabble in a cornucopia of sound,
not limited to country or pop, soul or rock. My original music is intrinsically personal and
ever-adaptive. Illustrative and illuminative of my life, love, losses, and lessons.
I have a lifetime of singing experience, having come into the world wailing in 1992, as my mother
said (and as some would say, never stopped), but in recent years felt a calling to stringed
instruments, specifically guitar and mandolin.
My life, like yours, is a journey; which, to me, would seem meaningless without song.
