Holland, along with Lamont Dozier, served as the team's musical arranger and producer. He has written or co-written 145 hits in US and 78 in the UK. Holland was born in Detroit, Michigan. For a short time, he partnered with Robert Bateman, and together they were known as "Brianbert", collaborating on such hits as "Please Mr. Postman" for The Marvelettes. Holland has also had an on-and-off career as a performer. He released a solo single in 1958 under the name of "Briant Holland". He and longtime friend and future songwriting partner Freddie Gorman were in a short-lived group called the Fidalatones, and he was later (1960–62) a member of the Motown recording act The Satintones as well as being a member of the Rayber Voices, a quartet that backed up several early Motown recording acts. He partnered with Lamont Dozier under the name "Holland–Dozier", releasing a lone single for Motown in 1963, then was inactive for a number of years, and was then revived in the early and mid-1970s, scoring a number of medium-sized R&B hits. Holland resumed his solo recording career in 1974, hitting the charts as a solo artist in '74 and '75. Holland also composed songs for the First Wives Club musical. (en)

Hierna stopte hij als artiest, maar in de jaren zeventig nam hij weer nummers zelf op en scoorde hij kleinere hits op de R&B lijst, als "Don't Leave Me Starvin' For Your Love" uit 1972.
