I heard Holly Macve on Radio 3's Late Junction the other evening.
They thought she comes from Liverpool, but the Bella Union site tells a different story:
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).Whatever the truth of it, she sounds as though she comes from somewhere rural in America.
