DP Holmes is a founding member of the aggressively experimental New York based band Dub Trio. As a session guitarist he's recorded and performed with a diverse collection of artists including Lady Gaga, Snoop Dog, Mike Patton, Young Buck, Common, Z Trip, Simply Red, DJ Hi Tek, Trik Daddy, Keri Hilson, Macy Gray, Lloyd Banks and Producer Joel Hamilton. DP and Dub Trio are currently touring the world as the backing band for Hassidic reggae rap star Matisyahu. In addition to countless worldwide live concert appearances, DP's adventure with Matisyahu has also included performances on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and at the 2010 Winter Olympics.
With Dub Trio DP has released four albums (Exploring The Dangers Of, Another Sound Is Dying, New Heavy, and Cool Out and Coexist - released on the ROIR and Ipecac labels), and toured the world many times over. The band's unhinged mix of instrumental metal, reggae and dub, with electronic experimentation has created a genre unto itself. Revered by the band's strong fan base and fellow musicians alike, the intuitive connection between the band members and the power and intensity of their playing makes every Dub Trio performance an awe inspiring event.
Born in Ontario, Canada DP began playing guitar at age 8, and formed his first band with his brother at age 9. A former student of The Berklee College of Music, DP is known for creating original and innovative guitar melodies and soundscapes. He has forged a unique identity as a session player who is both versatile in his ability to assume almost all popular styles, as well as a creative writer who stretches the bounds of his instrument to the farthest reaches of the imagination. - from matisyahuworld.com
