Holly Ebony

Devon-based singer and songwriter who lists amongst her influences Nina Simone, James Taylor, Jimi Hendrix, Aretha Franklin, Eva Cassidy, Paul Simon, John Martyn, Joni Mitchell, Fairport Convention, Nick Drake, Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, Neil Young, Massive Attack, Lamb, Lou Rhodes, Portishead, Annie Lennox, Ben Harper, Kelly Joe Phelps, The Be Good Tanyas, Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt, Sinead O'Connor, Tracey Chapmann and Joan Armatrading.

She is, she says, "passionate about music and feel it desperately important to sing, to me it's the very best way to liberate emotion and be in touch with people. I have always sung and have had waves of being really actively involved in projects and then at other times snuck into a sense of silencing selfconciousness about it all!"
