About Holly

Holly is a highly experienced and immensely talented British singer, songwriter and musician. She was signed to Mercury Records when she was just 17 and recorded an album of original songs on Pete Townsend (The Who)’s barge studio in London. She has also recorded at most of the major studios in London including Abbey Road, Townhouse, Sphere, Olympic, Rak and Air. She has played sold-out solo shows in London of her own songs and toured the UK as a solo singer songwriter as well as extensively playing London with bands.

Whilst living in London pursuing her artistic career she cut her teeth earning a living playing piano and singing in the most exclusive hotels and member’s clubs in Mayfair. These include The Ritz Club, The Dorchester, The Wellesley Jazz Lounge, The RAC, The Hurlingham Club, The Millennium Mayfair and The Churchill Cigar Bar. She also worked as a session musician and vocalist for Candle Music where she been the voice of many well known adverts over the years.

A chance encounter with someone asking for Pink Floyd one night in her piano bar led Holly on an adventure to be crew on Griff Rhys Jones’ classic yacht in the Monaco regatta. Tired of city life and yearning for some adventure Holly said yes and it was there that she met the young, handsome yacht skipper who would later become her husband!

She spent a couple of years on the Cote D’Azure on the boat, drinking pastise and busking next to the Petanque courts. She didn’t miss London and its late night Mayfair scene and a new gigging scene emerged. She began playing luxurious yacht parties and entertaining the stars and starlets of the Cannes Film Festival at the Martinez Hotel. She also started to focus on weddings and soon found that she was in demand all over the world. From stately homes in the UK to wine estate and beach weddings in South Africa. She was also flown out to the middle east to perform coroporate gigs at new Golf Courses, hotel openings and gala dinners for the Oman Arab Bank.

In 2015 Holly and her husband decided to live on land and moved to the beautiful island of Mallorca. Here Holly has really earned her reputation of being the go-to performer for wedding ceremonies on the island. She also plays with a band ‘Con Gas’ for parties and in general just really enjoys any gigs. After a hiatus when her daughter was born at the end of 2016 she is returning to playing the exclusive parties and weddings and also is now newly inspired and spending a lot of time writing new songs, recording and performing original gigs. She also produces other people’s music and was co-producer on an album of remade retro-gaming music that will be out alongside a film later in 2018.
