Ste van Holm is a Danish artist and composer from North Sealand, who was born in 1977 and started with playing guitar writing songs at age of 13. Since 2001, he released five well-executed full-lenght albums which are a beautiful journey through his influences like Pink Floyd, Brian Eno, Mike Oldfield, Peter Gabriel, 80s King Crimson and beyond.
Holm's recent cd "Tesla", a concept progressive rock album about the life of inventor Nikola Tesla, is released in November 2015. i suggested him to the PA' Crossover section due to his eclectic catalogue.

Despite producing six albums since 2001, he seems to be a very little-known artist. I didn't find him on RYM, and his facebook page has only 135 'likes': However, he was interviewed only last week on the Progarchy website:, so maybe this latest album will be the breakthrough one for him? He said in the interview that there’s not much of a following of progressive rock in Denmark these days. Perhaps that has something to do with his apparent lack of a fan base? Music fits the sub for the most part, so I guess he's worth an evaluation at least.

There are some (pretty decent) female vocals on several tracks of the 'Tesla' album, but no credits are given for them on the bandcamp page. I think we would need to get more info from him to be able to add his discography to his eventual page on here (if successfully cleared, that is).

Thank you very much for your words about me!
Like you, I am for most part puzzled by the lack of following myself, but I have to admit, that I am not very good at promoting my music.
