In his early 20’s (James) Flournoy Holmes visually defined the Southern Rock phenomenon of the early 1970’s creating notable album covers and artwork for bands like The Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker, Wet Willie, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels, Outlaws, Sea Level, Hank Williams Jr, Kansas and many others.
His mushroom images at that time exploded upon the world music scene and have become international icons. The Allman Brothers album “Eat A Peach” (which Duane Allman and Flournoy named) is one of the ultimate psychedelic art experiences in album cover art. Georgia Peach Growers Association said Flournoy’s imagery has helped to bring the Georgia Peach to national prominence.
He also created works at that time for groups such as Dr. John, Bruce Springsteen, Ted Nugent, Aerosmith, Carol King. His creative, influential and iconic images are still being used today after 40 years. Flournoy epitomizes the creative force, as a multi- disciplined artist and continues to pursue painting, photography, filmmaking and music. Check out some of his other work here!
