    Edward Holland, Jr. (born October 30, 1939, Detroit, Michigan, known during his recording career as Eddie Holland) is an Americansinger, songwriter and record producer.
    Although Holland was an early Motown artist who recorded minor hits 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 hitrecords by Martha and the Vandellas, The Supremes, the Four Tops, and The Isley Brothers, among others.
    Holland served as the team's lyricist, and also worked with producer Norman Whitfield on lyrics for the songs he produced for The Marvelettesand The Temptations, like "Too Many Fish In The Sea" and "Beauty's Only Skin Deep"...
