He wants his songs to be heard. Holland Francis Levoy started writing and performing songs at the early age of fifteen. Born into a family of seven his musical influences have been many. A mother who played the piano and liked to listen to Hank Williams. A father who played in a Dixieland band and four sisters and two brothers whose tastes differed from Bob Dylan, Van Morrison to Jackson Browne and The Beatles.
