Holly Palmer

Profile:
Relocating to New York in the mid-90's, she recorded her eponymously titled, and critically acclaimed debut album, toured with the likes of k.d. lang and Paula Cole, and garnered a fervent international following. In the process, she continued her ceaseless creative quest, opening up ever-new horizons by never settling for the prevailing musical point of view. In one live show that fans still talk about, Holly and her band re-imagined the entire soundtrack to the epic Wim Wenders film Until The End Of The World, transforming the songs of R.E.M., Elvis Costello, Peter Gabriel, Lou Reed and others into a stunning evening of musical cinematography.

Then came a new venture. Asked by an old friend from Boston to add vocals to a work in progress, Holly found that the project was in fact a new album by David Bowie. Admiring her vocal style and skills, he asked Holly to not only duet with him on the album Hours, but to join his band and tour worldwide as well.

Back from the road, Holly's restless spirit prompted yet another move, this time back across the country to Los Angeles, where she began a long and fruitful series of musical collaborations, bringing to the forefront her lifelong love of classic soul music. "I wanted to frame my voice with just a few elements. Most important in writing and recording these songs were that I'd leave myself lots of space to sing in. I wanted kicking back beats and big warm bass as my platform to jump from. I think of myself as a storyteller; my main job is to expose characters I've created and their stories. In working to get that right, I discovered that above all other considerations, the immediacy of the human voice and all that it can convey are what I'm most interested in."
