BEHIND THE MUSIC
Originally from Malta, Hollie began playing the piano when she was just 5 years old. A classically trained pianist, she has an eclectic taste in music, and also plays guitar, saxophone, drums, double bass, clarinet, accordion and ukulele.
As a songwriter, Hollie's music has been compared to the likes of Carole King, Kate Bush, Coldplay, The Beatles and Regina Spektor. She combines old-school, catchy melodies with honest lyrics, adding a touch of her own unique quirkiness. Her songs coupled with her warm voice, resonate with listeners of all ages.
A graduate of the Royal Academy of Music, Hollie is also an established actress, singer and dancer, having performed in London's West End and across the UK in various hit musicals including Cabaret, West Side Story, Crazy for You and On Your Feet!
Hollie works as Associate Musical Supervisor for the worldwide hit show, The Choir of Man, and has also written the book, music and lyrics of a new musical, which is currently in development.
Hollie's debut single Bossy will be available for streaming and download on Friday 12th March, 2023.
To anyone who has ever been called bossy for being confident, standing up for themselves, knowing what they want, disagreeing with something, and having strong opinions -
this song is for you!
Available on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, iTunes, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube and all other online platforms.
Hollie will be playing at Freedom on Mountfitchet Festival in Stansted on Friday 20th August 2021. Headliners include Toploader (Dancing in the Moonlight) and The Hoosiers (Goodbye Mr. A).
