From Holly Ann
Holly Ann is a singer/songwriter native to portland, OR. Her debut album "Ravens" came out in 2010 when Holly was 20. It was produced by Aaron Marsh of Copeland in Lakeland, Florida. The release was full of heartfelt and lamenting lyrics set to catchy melodies and lush arrangements, with many critics citing Holly's writing beyond her years. It peaked at #3 on the Amazon singer/songwriter charts as well as breaking the top 200 on iTunes. In 2012 Holly Ann's name began emerging again, this time supporting names like Josh white, Liz vice and Josh Garrels through Deeper Well Records. This December Holly Ann will release her second solo album through Deeper Well Records entitled "Light & Bloom" - exactly 5 years since her first release. Produced in conjunction with Evan Way of the Parson Red Heads and Danny O'Hanlon from Bungalow 9 studios, "Light & Bloom" showcases more of Holly's contemplative lyrics deeply in-tune with the joys and struggles of holding on to faith, this time with a stronger band presence inspired by artists like Emmy Lou Harris's "Wrecking Ball" Mazzy Star's " So Tonight That I Might See" and Ryan Adams "Love is Hell".
