Lonnie Bradley Holley, sometimes known as The Sand Man (born February 10, 1950 in Birmingham, Alabama), is an African-American artist, art educator, and musician. He is best known for his assemblages and immersive environments made of found materials  . That same year, he released his debut album Just Before Music, followed by Keeping a Record of It the following year. In September 2018, he released his third album MITH on Jagjaguwar. Just Before Music (2012). Keeping a Record of It (2013).

Lonnie Holley is 63 years old, and this is his second album to be commercially released. He claims to have made music all his life, though he first entered a recording studio in 2010. The first album, Just Before Music, was released in 2012 by Dust-to-Digital, the same label behind 2013’s Keeping a Record of It. Music for Holley is just another piece of his artistic life. He makes sculptures, drawings, paintings, photographs and harder-to-classify pieces. Holley’s music is entwined with his art which is entwined with his life.

Lonnie Holley starts MITH, his third album, with a simple, striking statement: I’m a suspect in America, he sings over a prismatic keyboard line, stretching the last syllable until he runs out of breath. As a black man who has lived in the cities of the South for much of his life, Holley has endured that reality for 68 years, watching as white suspicion of black bodies has evolved but never receded. That record and its follow-up, 2013’s Keeping a Record of It, felt like gentle trips through outer space, as if it were possible to float the Milky Way. But on MITH, Holley does with music what he’s done with visual art for decades: He collects our ugliest obscured objects and transforms them into singular reflections on our troubled world.

In early 2017, Lonnie Holley was in Richmond, VA, a few days shy of his 67th birthday. He was on a tour that was slowly making its way to Washington, . where he had a show scheduled at the Smithsonian-and where Donald Trump had been sworn in as president a few weeks prior. We were just talking about the state of the world, recalls Matt Arnett, Holley’s manager and longtime confidante. As a musician, Holley has collaborated with Bradford Cox (who played on his album Keeping a Record Of It), toured with Animal Collective, and been sampled by Bon Iver. As a visual artist, he has been amassing a reputation as a singular American outsider artist since those guys were in diapers. These days, he is represented by the James Fuentes Gallery in New York.
