Join us for the Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, as Greg Holden performs a live midday concert on Friday.

Greg Holden may be best known for his songwriting, but that is about to change. His debut full length studio album, Chase the Sun, released on March 20th to Warner Bros., has all the markings of a wildly talented songwriter not only capable of telling stories, but also bringing those stories to life in his musical arrangements and talent for curating a catchy melody. Although most well known for writing Philip Phillips' smash hit "Home" and his own "The Lost Boy", a song inspired by Dave Eggers' novel about a Sudanese refugee, which hit iTunes #1 in Holland, raised $50,000 for the Red Cross, and was featured on Sons of Anarchy, Holden has nothing but success on the horizon for him following his successful major label debut. Born in Scotland, Holden spent his teenage years in England idolizing Bob Dylan's rebellious attitude before relocating to New York City in 2009 to get his career off the ground. As of now he has no local dates besides the Free at Noon planned, so be sure to get out and catch the budding singer-songwriter at World Cafe on the last Friday of July.
