Holus Bolus

Holus Bolus means ‘All At Once’. Holus Bolus is one person, multi-instrumentalist Tom Boylan. Referrred to as the "One-Man-Psychedelic-Acousti-loop" artist, Holus Bolus is the modern take on what a one-man-band is in this day and age. Outfitted with a small drum-kit and an acoustic guitar with some foot pedals, Holus Bolus builds songs one layer at a time, coalescing into one sound that’s acoustic-psychedelic groove-rock. “It’s like a philosopher-juggler….you throw up one ball at a time until you get a good thing going, then vocalize about life, love, aliens, and existence….all at once”, says Tom.

Based in Crescent City, CA, Holus Bolus has toured extensively throughout the West Coast and the Pacific Northwest for the last 10-odd years building a devoted audience of people who love live music. In 2016, Holus Bolus toured throughout the west, from Washington to New Mexico, and also performed at multiple festivals, including the Sawtooth Valley Gathering in Stanley, ID and The Wool Festival in Taos, NM.

Holus Bolus has released two full-length albums, The Work Of The Ether (2010), and Time Machine (2012) as well as an E.P., 100 Feet Tall under the shortened name of HoBo. The newest album, 'Possible Lives', will be released on 7/1/17, with NW and SW Tours throughout 2017. Holus Bolus continues to push modern recording, touring, performing, and instrumentalism to the next level. For more info:
