Background: Holmes began studying the guitar via the Suzuki Method at age six, and formed a band five years later, playing throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee. At 15, he recorded his debut CD, The Jeb Holmes Band, which showcased a maturity and soulfulness rooted in the music of Southern rock groups such as the Allman Brothers. Adept at both slide and conventional electric guitar, Holmes is currently a member of the Christian rock group Dilemish, a gig he successfully balances with his academic pursuits.
