Singer Songwriter Sheldon Holder's eclectic brand of music fuses elements of Calypso, Jazz, Reggae, and Rock, and is quickly becoming a sound to be reckoned with in the Toronto music scene.

With a successful album, critical acclaim on BBC radio, an award winning video for his song Prosper, and local and international performances under his belt, Sheldon made a bold move and came back to Canada after living in Trinidad since the age of eight.

Sheldon`s music has been a driving force in the Caribbean`s underground music scene for more than a decade. He has also been highlighted in many mainstream events such as Caribbean Fashion Week in Jamaica, The Tobago International Jazz Festival, and he was in Toronto in 2009 as part of Canadian Music Week opening for the Dirty Heads as well as Mishka

More recently, Sheldon was praised in the New York Times by Project Runway winner Anya Ayoung-Chee who has used Sheldon's music in her runway shows in the Caribbean and abroad.

In addition to his music, Sheldon has been heavily involved with a creative space called Alice Yard, and has been profiled globally, most recently as part of the Global Africa Project held last year at the MAD in New York City where his album cover was part of the exhibit. Alice Yard has been listed in the New York Times as one of the top ten places to visit in Trinidad and Tobago. It is one of the focal points for the subculture of the region for both music and art.

In 2012 Sheldon forged his way onto the Toronto music scene to form his current musical incarnation including an array of accomplished Toronto musicians. He is currently getting set to unleash his new single Consumed, a track that has been crafted in collaboration with the likes of sound engineer Jeremy Darby of Cantebury Music who has worked with Prince; mixed by Andre Wahl who has worked with Shania Twain and produced by Tom McKay of Exeter Sound Studios.
