A heavenly voice couched in spellbinding ballads, with a devastating emotional delivery, Holly Macve is a fantastic country & western performer. Although originally from Brighton, she received her knowledge of folk and country music from her mother’s record collection. Her debut album, Golden Eagle, is out march 3rd on Bella Union, and a person would be hard-pressed to find another 21-year-old with the same confidence and carefully-wrought aesthetic found on this debut.
“Words are my main love,” she declares. “I love songs that tell stories and take you somewhere else. I’ve always been drawn to that old country sound with it’s simple and memorable melodies. I enjoy music that feels timeless, that you don’t know quite when it was recorded.”
