Lawrence Holmes

Designer & Developer


A designer and developer who is passionate about music (since 1996)

I build beautiful apps for the web using functional code and technologies like Node.js and React. Alongside my personal projects, I'm working on awesome apps with Beatswitch and Noon Pacific.



Songstack is an iOS and web app for discovering new music

It employs a swiping interface, enabling users to easily feedback on each song they hear. In turn, the recommendations become more accurate to the user's taste.

The iOS app is built with Swift 3, the web app with React, and the server that powers these is built with Node.js and MongoDB.

Songstack was featured on Product Hunt.

Find your best festival

A simple web app that helps users find their ideal festival

The tool uses various APIs to get the artists that users follow, and then displays festivals that most match their interests.

The app is Serverless, hosted entirely using AWS, and has been used by over 2000 people (mainly thanks to being featured on Product Hunt).


A web app enabling users to save concert setlists as Spotify playlists

Built with React and the APIs of, Spotify and Songkick, the app has been used to save over 35,000 Spotify playlists and is featured on Spotify's Developer Showcase.

Setify has always been a playground for me to experiment with and learn new ideas. I made the first version while learning React, and have rebuilt it from scratch twice since then to ensure it's always the best I can make it.
