Nelson Keene was the stage name of Malcolm Holland (born 1942). He was a British pop singer at the start of the 1960s. He was born in Farnborough, Hampshire, one of ten children. As a singer, he was managed by Larry Parnes, who chose his stage name - along with those of many other pop singers of the period including Billy Fury, Marty Wilde, Vince Eager and Georgie Fame - and was signed to HMV Records. His first single, "Image of a Girl", a cover version of a US top ten hit by The Safaris, reached No. 37 on the UK Singles Chart in 1960, but was outsold by Mark Wynter's rival version of the same song. Two follow-ups, "Keep Loving Me" (1960) and "Miracles Are Happening To Me" (1961) failed to reach the chart, and Keene's recording career appears to have ended at that point.
