About


Holly was brought up in the Suffolk folk scene and was saturated in music from the very start.   Her love of singing and keen interest in the everyday stories of people has led her to write folk songs that express what she sees.  

At the tender age of 15 she signed to backwater records and released multiple recordings of her melodic storytelling; most recently ‘The Doll’s House’ EP and ‘East Anglian Girl’ album.  Holly’s music lends itself to intimate, pin drop performances where she sings directly and personally to her audience as in her folk club upbringing. 

Holly is currently recording her third album: Feel the North Wind Blow due to be released in 2016.   Holly's writing has been described as 'hauntingly exact observations...poetic candour'.  Her voice is repeatedly praised for its purity and is described as 'mellow, clear and expressive'.

Holly has recently returned from the Northern climbs of Scotland where she pursued her Masters, whilst still performing and recording her music.  Her masters piece: 'Toad Woman' has warmed the hearts of her audience and whilst still performing solo, she is now part of folk/ contemprary duo 'Boathouse Keepers'.

Boathouse Keepers are currently recording, writing and gigging and will release their debut EP later this year.
