“a songwriter of great subtlety” 

- Clash

 

“Holly Holden is a modern example of an artist who thinks beyond borders” 

- Kreole Magazine

 

“Her sound has an element that makes us vibrate…There is no point in trying to put a label on [it]. According to Holly there are no labels, nothing is pure and music in its essence is a conversation.”

Holly Holden is a singer, songwriter and bassist from London, but you mightn’t guess it. A long-term love affair with Latin America and many years spent music-making in the region, most notably Cuba, transformed her sound from its original acoustic-folk into something much more sassy and syncopated.

 

Imagine The Police fronted by a Latina Amy Winehouse and you’re getting somewhere close.
