Holon biography
holon is one of the musical outlets of singer, songwriter and guitarist Ronny Pedersen. Ronny seriously started getting into music around the age of 12 after having been seduced by the illustrious sound of the guitar. After initially trying to mimic the rock guitar gods of the 80's and 90's, mostly focusing on lead guitar, he eventually opened up to other genres such as prog-rock, jazz, Frank Zappa and even world music.

The songs on The Time is Always Now show the influence of a wide variety of genres including acoustic folk and the sophisticated side of 60's pop with meticulously crafted writing at its core, Originally, the plan was to record an arbitrary selection of his oldest songs, but as Ronny started to review his whole body of work, he noticed that certain songs fit together in an extraordinary way ? almost like pieces In a puzzle ? to create an overall story.
