Welcome, Holly Macve
BELLA UNION have recently signed the exciting talent of Holly Macve. Boss Simon Raymonde says “Little is known of Holly other than she is a 20 year old from Yorkshire who appeared out of nowhere in Brighton late last year. I had a tip-off to go to a basement bar where she was playing. In a room full of beery boys chatting across all the music beforehand, the minute Holly opened her mouth the room fell silent. Hers is a rare gift.”
She is currently writing and recording in the North-East of England with Paul Gregory (Lanterns On The Lake) and is today announced as the Special Guest of Yael Naim’s 2 forthcoming Paris shows, at Théâtre Des Bouffes Du Nord on 26 Oct and at Le Trianon on 30 Nov. In between she will be joining the mighty John Grant who within five minutes of hearing her voice, invited her to support him on his UK tour! More dates to follow very soon!!
‘The Corner of My Mind’ was recorded in a bedroom of a small bedsit in Brighton on Garageband two months ago.
Holly plays tomorrow night at Kings Head Members Club (on stage at 8.30pm). Tickets and more info here.
