Brian Holland

Brian Holland (born February 15, 1941 in Detroit, Michigan) is an African American songwriter and record producer, best known as a member of Holland-Dozier-Holland. That songwriting and production team that was responsible for much of the Motown sound and numerous hit records by artists such as Martha & the Vandellas, The Supremes, The Four Tops, and The Isley Brothers. Holland, along with Lamont Dozier, served as the team's musical arranger and producer.

Holland has also had an on-and-off career as a performer. He released a solo single in 1958 as "Briant Holland", and was later (1960-62) a member of Motown recording act The Satintones as well as being a member of The Rayber Voices, a quartet that backed up several early Motown recording acts. He also partnered with Lamont Dozier in the act "Holland-Dozier" which released a lone single on Motown in 1963, was inactive for a number of years, and was then revived in the early and mid-1970s scoring a number of medium-sized R&B hits. Holland resumed his solo recording career in 1974, hitting the charts as a solo artist in '74 and '75.
