The Info List - Eddie Holland

Edward "Eddie" Holland Jr. (born October 30, 1939) is an American singer, songwriter and record producer. Holland was born in Detroit, Michigan. Although he was an early Motown artist who recorded minor hit singles such as "Jamie",[1] he started working behind the scenes due to stage fright. He was a member of Holland–Dozier–Holland, the songwriting and production team responsible for much of the Motown
Sound and hit records by Martha and the Vandellas, The Supremes, The Four Tops, and The Isley Brothers, among others. He has written or co-written 80 hits in the UK and 143 in the US charts.[2] 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".[citation needed] Holland also composed songs for the First Wives Club musical.[3] Singles (as a recording artist)[edit] All singles on Motown, unless noted. All of Holland's Mercury and United Artists

singles were produced by Motown
founder Berry Gordy, but leased to these other record labels for national distribution.
