Joseph "Redbone 10K" Holloway was born and raised on the east side of Columbus, Ohio. He began his singing career in church at the age of 2. He idolized his Uncle Will, who played saxophone for a local group The Symbols. When he was in fifth grade, Uncle Will loaned him his first saxophone, and his goal became to learn and play rock and roll, just like his uncle. Just a few weeks later he wrote his first song - "Listen Baby Now Here".
After singing in the church choir throughout his childhood, at 15, Redbone started a gospel group with his best friends. They called themselves the Gospelites, and performed in local churches, as well as in Cleveland, Ohio and Detroit, MI. Later, Redbone moved to Texas, where he got his first taste of recording in a professional studio, with blues singer, Era Hayes. Shortly after, he formed a band named Empulse with sound engineer and friend, Charles Eichelberger. They traveled all over the southern states singing and playing Top 40 rock and roll. Redbone has since had quite a varied career. He has played country with Travis Allen, and traveled internationally with R&B group Bachelor. After moving back to his hometown Columbus, Ohio, Redbone played gospel live on Channel 8 with Sister Ellie Flowers, and worked with Grammy nominated, "King" Gene Walker.
Currently, Redbone is playing with several local groups including his brother "Doc" Holloway. He also plays with Athens, Ohio based Sharell Arocho from American Idol and the RandBstation band. He is working in high schools in Nelsonville, Ohio for the Music In The Schools Project, all the while continuing to perform and work on his upcoming CD.
