"There's something quite pleasant and rather magical going on here."
“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.”

Want to listen while you check out the site? Click on the music player to hear almost an hour of Holland's music, in no particular order, from a number of his albums, including his most recent,Under a Second Moon.
This is not your typical new age music. Holland Phillips creates beautiful instrumental music that defies categorization. Some call it New Age, Contemporary Instrumental or Dream Pop, others say it's Electronic or energetic Ambient music - in fact, Holland's music has been nominated or won numerous awards, including Song of the Year (2016, 2017), Contemporary Instrumental Album of the Year (2016, 2017), Best Electronic Album of the Year (2015), Album of the Year (2014), and more - yet somehow his music remains somewhat uncategorizable, a position Holland is unapologetic for. He uses everything from new age, jazz, dream pop, electronic, classical and rock in his creations to weave rhythmic and melodic tapestries into unforgettable songs that inspire, and support healthy vibrations and good feelings within the listener.
Holland creates songs and melodies that are richly melodic, sometimes rhythmic, yet always stay in the listener's mind for a long time. His songs support good feelings and healing, and appeal to those young and old, and even those who are not New Age music afficianados. He regularly receives feedback from mothers who use his albums to calm their children, therapy leaders who play his albums in therapy sessions, musicians who are inspired to create, and others who listen to the music calm their souls after a busy or stressful day. His music can be heard on New Age radio stations, sleep radio, on airline in-flight music, and has been synchronized by Warner Chappell for use in television and film. This is New Age and Contemporary Instrumental music at its best.

“This is creative new age music full of melodic content and a group sound. It flows over you slow and sweet like real maple syrup on a stack of pancakes, and it goes down just as easy too.”
#1 Music Forum
“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.”

CD Review Blog
Holland believes that the health of the planet and all of the living things in it boils down to one thing - water. And even though we need it to exist, we are quickly losing our grasp on clean accessible water because of chemicals, pesticides, sewer discharges and plastics that we inadvertently (or purposely) put in our lakes, rivers and oceans. Holland focuses much of his spare time trying to make a difference, so that our water supply remains (or returns to) the valuable resource that it is. He attended as the featured artist at The Marathon Reef Sweep in the Florida Keys, where divers cleaned debris and fishing line from the reefs while music from Holland's Flight of the Windmill album was piped to them underwater. Holland also supports the Plastic Pollution Coalition, a non-profit organization that seeks to eliminate the use of single use plastics, which end up in our rivers and streams, and eventually into marine life.
