Jonathan Stolber is a multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter & music producer from Fleet, Hampshire in the United Kingdom.
On moving to the East Midlands of the UK, Stolber spent a few years honing live electronic performances supporting the likes of 65 Days Of Static & Guillemots. Stolber then went on to front, acclaimed East Midlands cinematic art-rock outfit
"To Bury A Ghost."
The bands debut EP "The Hurt Kingdom" was produced by sonic guru Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Wildhearts) and received widespread critical praise from the likes of the 405 & Echoes And Dust. Playing their debut live show for Goldflakepaint, Stolber became a twice-nominated BBC Introducing artist before being selected to represent Northamptonshire musicians at the BBC Abbey Road Masterclass Session.
After disbanding, Stolber has been busy in his remote countryside studio 'Outpost 13' teaching himself the craft of self production. Having stock piled recordings, Stolber reached out to Leeds uber producer James Kenosha (Grammatics, Dry The River) to mix his fervent debut solo offering.
Choosing to release his new music under the moniker "The Holy Road" - Stolber is now crafting a grand, haunted hybrid of art-rock, electronica & classical with vaulting vocals & spiraling melodies.
Piano Day 2020 saw the debut release of his track "the Minotaur" - an instrumental cinematic appetite-whetter pulled from the forthcoming debut LP. The track was selected for inclusion on the Nils Frahm curated official playlist.
Stolber has spent 2020's global pandemic locked down at Outpost 13 putting final touches to his self produced & debut EP "An Unshakable Demon" due for release Record Store Day 2021.
