It all began in early 2012 at a large rehearsal complex as Kevin Holloway - then the singer of a band comprised mainly of US military contractors stationed in Mannheim - was recommended to a group next door. The contracts were close to over and most of his current bandmates were preparing to move back home, leaving the 20-year-old singer anxious for a new project. His skills as a vocalist and his uncompromising “Rock n Roll” lifestyle impressed the band one door down and so he moved in. This momentum was short-lived, though, as Holloway had already made a commitment to leave in early 2013 and study music on the West Coast of America. Late 2015 Holloway had finished with his studies in the US, returned to Mannheim, and stepped back into his old role as singer for Horsefly. Meanwhile the band began looking for a producer and studio for a debut album. The self-titled debut album was released on June 28th 2018 on the bands own label “Bug Valley Records” and the distribution Alive on the market. The single “Never Again” received in about a hundred airplays at German radio stations. The second single “Devil's Playground” landed on the sampler of the Classic Rock magazine UK/USA of the June/July issue in 2019. After numerous concerts and very successful festival appearances, the band went to the studios in 2020 to record the second studio album. Now you look into the rock universe and wonder where Horsefly Rocket is going!
