Steve Holy (born February 23, 1972 in Dallas, Texas) is an American country music artist, blending 50's rock and roll, pop and traditional country. Steve sites country greats Charlie Rich, Mickey Gilley and John Conlee as his influences, but is quick to add that Elvis, Sam Cooke, and a variety of Doo-Wop bands play a major role in his vocal style and on-stage persona. In 1997, Steve signed with Curb Records. He launched his debut album Blue Moon in October 2000.
