Hollie Smith is the name on everyone's lips. Staking her reputation on the strength of standout collaborations & with the likes of TrinityRoots, Fat Freddy's Drop, Don McGlashan & One Million Dollars, she has turned heads with her deep, rich & soulful singing & songwriting, which has drawn praise from all who have had the pleasure of hearing her perform.
'E.P.' represents the first official recordings of her own music & provides the perfect platform for Hollie to demonstrate her huge musical talent. Written & arranged by Hollie from start to finish, 'E.P.' features an impressive line-up of local musicians, including Rio Hemopo & Warryn Maxwell [TrinityRoots], Dallas Tamaira [Fat Freddy's Drop], Jeremy Toy [OpenSouls], Chris Yeabsley [Twinset] & Nick Gaffaney [Anika Moa Band].
Hollie's wide range of musical influences are evident throughout as she combines elements of soul, jazz, reggae & r&b in a distinctive manner that vividly illustrates her considerable talents. The most exciting aspect of 'E.P.' though is undoubtedly Hollie's wonderfully emotive & affecting voice, which soars, dips & jags it's way through these five slices of beautiful music.
Whatever style she embraces, Hollie creates an intriguing mix of sensual, melodic & earthy songs filled with depth, passion & power. With 'E.P.' she has delivered one of the most soulful & emotive releases of the year. Absolutely essential.
