Holden Brothers

Josh and Nick grew up in the outlaw country music scene. You could find these two as kids lugging guitar cases around, sitting on amps in bars and soaking up stories. They consider themselves somewhat unspoken roadies for musicians such as Willie Nelson and family. In 2002 they moved from Louisiana to Austin and started playing in a band with Black Joe Lewis. subsequently, josh & nick began pursuing writing, directing, and acting. In 2007, they finally decided to form Mishnoon.

Origin of the name MISHNOON: 

Majnun and Layla are the Romeo and Juliette of the Arabic and Persian culture. The story goes that when Layla died, Majnun went crazy and wandered the desert writing poetry in the sand. In Arabic, Majnun can be interpreted as ‘crazy/goofy’. Growing up in Louisiana with Lebanese roots, Josh and Nick's family would affectionately call each other ‘Majnun’ when someone was acting out of the norm. When starting their company, they used this bit of their history as the inspiration for the name Mishnoon, to always encourage radical self expression and acting out of the norm.
