Dave is a fantastic player - versatile, quick, knowledgable, helpful and extremely efficient. The ideal guitarist for all my diverse stylistic session needs. Whether its 00s Rock or 40s Jazz, and anything in between, Dave is my guitarist of choice.Andy Spiller - Producer
I've known and worked with Dave since the late 80's on stage and in studio. He's quick, versatile and easy to work with, with great time and feel. Highly recommended.Steve Williams - Chapel Studios
I have been working with Dave Holmes for over 15 years - he is and always has been my first choice guitarist. As a composer for TV, commercials and film, my deadlines are invariable tight. With Dave, I know I can get him in to the studio and, even with the vaguest of briefs, he will come up with great musical ideas and excellent suggestions for sounds. Perhaps most of all - and something I always look for - he is very easy to work with, very versatile and will work on something until it's right - without fuss and with good humour. One thing I must also say …his timing is superb! Of course, like all guitarists, he turns up to a session with far too many guitars!
What can I say ...use Dave, you won't be sorry!Robert Hartshorne - Composer
Dave always slots in to any recording session instantly. The versatility on all the instruments he plays is extremely useful to any film composer who may need a whole range of Eastern European effects, pastoral classical guitars, 12 string, banjo or classic rock. He offers creative suggestions for layering different instruments to produce original textures which inject real spirit to the end resultSteve Hamilton - Honey Music
