Tony Holiday’s new album, SOUL SERVICE, from the VizzTone label group, is available now worldwide.

Memphis based Tony Holiday came to international attention with his 2019 VizzTone release, the star-studded PORCH SESSIONS, in which he established himself as a top-notch harmonica player and producer of modern field recordings. With SOUL SERVICE, Holiday also proves to be a powerful, soulful singer, and a songwriter of smart, moving roots music songs that expand his palette beyond blues to show his diverse influences.

Produced by Grammy nominee Ori Naftaly (Southern Avenue, Stax Records) at Zebra Ranch, the Dickinson family studio in Independence, Mississippi, the album features Holiday on lead vocals and harmonica, Landon Stone on guitar, Max Kaplan on bass and background vocals, Danny Banks (John Nemeth band) on drums, and special guests producer Ori Naftaly on guitar and Grammy nominated Victor Wainwright on keys.

Tony Holiday says, “Recording Soul Service at North Mississippi’s Zebra Ranch was a gratifying experience. It really captured the soul of the Memphis influence that’s at the heart of this record.”
