About Darryl Holter

News and Articles


Category: Darryl Holter

Darryl Holter grew up playing the guitar and singing country and rock and roll songs in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As a child, his early influences were Elvis and Johnny Cash, then Bob Dylan, then the folk-rock and country-rock. His current brand of Americana music draws from country, blues and folk traditions and often tells stories about people, places and events. In 2008 he formed 213 Music and launched his first self-titled album of original songs. Two years later he released "West Bank Gone," an album that highlighted the West Bank (of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis) music scene in the 1970s. Besides his music, Holter has worked as an academic, a labor leader, an urban revitalization planner, and an entrepreneur.

Most recently he has done archival research and written on Woody Guthrie in Los Angeles, 1937 to 1941.

Darryl is listening to:
Woody Guthrie, Elvis, Bob Dylan, Dave Ray, John Koerner, Bonnie Raitt, The Byrds, Joni Mitchell, Uncle Tupelo, Wilco, Son Volt, Julia Holter
