Holiday was born "Vlad Luca Gheorghiu" in Bucharest, Romania on May 24, 1989. He later changed his last name to Holiday when receiving US citizenship. Holiday's father, Paul Gheorghiu (son of actor Petre Gheorghiu) was a journalist who spoke out against the regime change in Romania once the Berlin Wall fell in 1989 as the country escaped communism and corruption. This resulted in their family receiving death threats from their government, and Holiday's father fled to America for political asylum in search for a better life for the family. It took Vlad and the rest of his family 9 years to be able to get the proper paperwork required to move to the US, and in September 1999, Holiday (age 10) and his family moved to Bergen County, New Jersey, where he met his father in person for the first time.

In October 2012, they changed their name to "Born Cages" due to too many people confusing them for a 1970s rock band that shared the same name, fronted by The Scorpions' Uli Jon Roth. The band's first show as Born Cages was at CMJ Music Festival with X Ambassadors.
Born Cages signed to Razor & Tie and their new label Washington Square, who Rolling Stone announced as The Hold Steady planned a new album.

On August 5, 2014, Buzznet premiered Born Cages' "Rolling Down The Hill," as the band announced a headlining tour in support of the new single. On September 4, Fresh New Tracks premiered a Rolling Down The Hill remix from German producer Glastrophobie, which reached the No. 2 spot on Hype Machine's Popular Remix Chart. Yahoo!

On April 7, 2017, Born Cages released their second studio album, Exit Signs In A Burning Building, which was produced by Vlad Holiday, with additional production by bandmate Matt Maroulakos and Justin Gerrish (The Strokes, Vampire Weekend). The band performed the new album at SXSW Music Festival in March 2017, where NPR raved, "Undeniably great songs...
