KPRiFM Greg Holden Private Listener Concert

KPRiFM Private Listener Concert
03/22/2015 - Greg Holden - Give It Away

KPRi 102.1 uses their Private Listener Concerts as their way of saying THANKS for spending time with the radio station. The Private Listener Concerts happen randomly all over San Diego. They’re free and intimate, and feature new artists before they hit the big time (like Adele, Jason Mraz, Imagine Dragons… just to name a few).

I was one of the lucky chosen participants for the March 22nd Greg Holden Private Listener Concert. Husband Paul and I boarded the “Inspiration Hornblower” docked at the Grape Street Pier at four p.m. sharp. There was plenty of seating in the floors below. We started our evening with a light dinner/snack of Crackers and Cheese. I also enjoyed a glass of red wine.

The band performed on the outdoor deck at six p.m. Greg Holden is a New York-based British singer-songwriter. He is best known for his hit charity single "The Lost Boy" and for co-writing "Home," the 2012 debut single for American Idol-winner Phillip Phillips.

Holden is very good and I sang along on several songs including “Home.” He has an easy stanza to his chatter and the crowd was effortlessly drawn into the show.

"The Lost Boy" was written by Holden in 2011. Greg explained that it was inspired by the book What is the What by American writer Dave Eggers about a Sudanese refugee. Holden recorded it and released as a charity single in December 2011, and it became a hit for him in the Netherlands, topping the Dutch iTunes singles chart on Christmas Day and reaching No. 2 on the Dutch Top 40.
