When asked to describe his music, Holmes said it's hard for him to place it in a specific genre or category. He said being at sea, writing music on the ocean, influences his music. He writes many songs about the hardships of life at sea, and being a Sailor.
Before going underway on deployment, Holmes wrote and released "The Deployment Song" - a song about what Sailors go through when saying goodbye to their loved ones to go to sea and accomplish their mission.
Holmes, a Houston, Texas, native, said he plans to continue writing music.
