"Cole Holland is a versatile, creative, and continually surprising musical force. He plays many styles with authority and thoughtful depth. Great player!" -Rick Peckham, Berklee College of Music

  • Studied different guitar techniques and music theory with world class professors.

  • Experience playing in church and recording with gospel artists.

  • Arranging solo guitar pieces for jazz standards, and arrangements for bands.

  • Built a big repertoire of Motown and R&B material working with the B.B King's Blues Club at Sea as both Lead guitarist and Musical Director

My time at Berklee deserves recognition for helping me get to where I am today. I received the Guitar Department Achievement award while studying at Berklee. I participated in the Jerry Reed/Chet Atkins ensemble many times, led by Rick Peckham, in which we opened for Guy Van Duser, and had the pleasure of working with one of Jerry Reed's drummers, Michael Clarke. I was very active in Dennis Montgomery III's Negro Spirituals ensemble, among others, in which we co-wrote a song, "Burdens Down", and recorded an EP together with his group Praise of Zion. I studied with Sheryl Bailey, Jack Pezanelli, Rick Peckham, and David Tronzo, all of whom played a very influential role in my development as a musician.
