The JW Vibe
“Many of the tracks have been enhanced by the richness of the orchestral backing, adding another layer to music which in many ways refuses to fit into any specific classification; perhaps this is the genius of the music and the man.”

Multi-instrumentalist Holland Phillips' beautiful instrumental music defies categorization. Some call it New Age, Contemporary Instrumental or Dream Pop, others say it's Electronic or energetic Ambient music. Whatever you call it, Holland's music has been nominated or won numerous awards, including Contemporary Instrumental Album of the Year (2016, 2017, 2020), Piano with Instrumentation Album of the Year (2018), Song of the Year (2016, 2017), Best Electronic Album of the Year (2015), Album of the Year (2020, 2014), and more. Holland uses keyboards, flute, electric and acoustic guitars and pianos to weave rhythmic and melodic tapestries into unforgettable songs that inspire, and support healthy vibrations and good feelings within the listener. His music can be heard on New Age radio stations, sleep radio, on airline in-flight music, and some of his music has been synchronized by Warner Chappell for use in television and film. This is New Age and Contemporary Instrumental music at its best.
"There's something quite pleasant and rather magical going on here."
Named one of the Top 3 Electronic Albums of 2015

“Each track was a different shade or color, a variation of moods that danced with the music. It all made me feel invigorated, joyous and glad to be alive.”
New Age Music Reviews
“Powered by themes you can touch emotionally, Phillips keeps the ideas flowing as easy as the melodies – kind of like the Mississippi without the pollution. Tasty stuff for those looking to look a little within for a while.”
“Sweeping musical fusion colors the listener’s imagination about past and future possibilities, connecting a sense of wonder with dreams of boundless optimism. Highly recommended.”
