Edward Holland, Jr.

Edward Holland, Jr.

:"See Edward Holland for other people with that name."Edward "Eddie" Holland, Jr. (born October 30, 1939, Detroit, Michigan) is an American singer, songwriter and record producer.

Although Holland was an early Motown artist who recorded minor hits such as "Jamie", he started working behind the scenes due to stage fright. He is best known as a member of Holland-Dozier-Holland, the songwriting and production team that was responsible for much of the Motown Sound and numerous hit records by artists such as Martha and the Vandellas, The Supremes, The Four Tops, and The Isley Brothers. Holland served as the team's lyricist, and also worked with producer Norman Whitfield on lyrics for the songs he produced for The Marvelettes and The Temptations, like "Too Many Fish In The Sea" and "Beauty's Only Skin Deep".
