About this Event

Holly Rees is a UK indie-folk singer-songwriter who grew up in the moors of the Durham Dales in the North East of England. Her 2017 debut EP 'Ilex' launched her musical career with support from BBC 6 Music and a feature on Tom Robinson's BBC Introducing Mixtape. 2018 saw this success continue with festival slots at Hit The North and Evolution Emerging, as well as supporting the likes of CoCo and the Butterfields, Joseph J Jones, X Factor's Sam Lavery, and Hannah Trigwell. Described as Laura-Marling-meets-Courtney-Barnett, her sophomore EP ‘Slow Down’ was released in August 2018 and reached #6 in the iTunes charts. There’s no slowing down in 2019 either with the upcoming release of a full-band live EP, and the announcement that Holly is bringing her heartfelt music our way on her first solo Canadian tour this May. Here's a taste!

"I was listening to a girl from the North East the other day, Holly Rees, and her track ‘Toast’ and it floored me. It was so brave and created by someone who was really, truly, being themselves. Don’t believe anyone who tells you there is no future in music. There is. All you have to be is good." - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

“Her stage personality, songs, and voice reminded me of some legendary singer/songwriters from yesteryear” - Spotlight Music UK

"unapologetically down to earth lyricism" - RIDE MUSIC

“an earnest brand of songwriting that will take Holly farther than she thinks." - The Music Mermaid
