Born in New York and raised in Montreal, Common Holly (AKA Brigitte Naggar) puts unpredictable compositional elements into a singer-songwriter/folk framework, packaged in textured, eclectic electro-acoustic production. Her debut album, Playing House, contemplates the notion that it is conscious thought and deliberate action that defines and cements maturation from child to adult. Playing House has received acclaim from NPR, Stereogum, Line of Best Fit, Exclaim! and CBC among others. Notable past and upcoming performances include tour support for Julia Jacklin, Land of Talk, Half Waif, Julien Baker, Tim Darcy, The Hotelier, Fazerdaze and Chad VanGaalen.
