Hollie Haines, an alt-folk singer-songwriter based in London plays music of powerful and honest lyrics, teamed with delicately crafted melodies. Starting off in Cambridge she played the UK's largest one-day festival, Strawberry Fair and has since been taking a unique approach to creating and releasing her music. After three years in Leeds she made the move to London a year ago, marking the change with the uplifting and sunny single, Keep Moving On. She's been non stop since she arrived in the capital and began an 8 month release campaign for her album 'Letters To My Last Love' in the spring releasing a song a month until the whole album came out last November to wide online support and radio play. In the midst of all this Haines embarked on a self-booked UK/EU tour covering six countries.
2019 is looking to be Hollie's biggest year yet. The year was barley getting underway and Hollie had already put on a week long Pop-Up event at Old Street Underground to promote Letters To My Last Love. She worked with artists and a space designer to create an immersive installation bringing the songs to life and allowing visitors to look at specially commissioned pieces or art while listening to the album.
Her creativity and drive show in every piece of music she releases and each project she launches. When performing live, Hollie pairs her deeply emotive, honest lyrics with quips and anecdotes about the people and stories that have inspired her music, to give an enrapturing performance.
