Number One Popstar
At the crossroads of charm and cynicism stands Number One Popstar, the indie synth-pop moniker of singer Kate Jean Hollowell. With a sharp sense of songwriting, N1PS’ music is a perfect blend of clever humor and undeniable hooks. Clash, PAPER, MTV, and V Magazine have praised the project as ultra-contagious, irreverent and infectious. Hollowell, the wild-eyed genius behind N1PS, honed her musical talent fronting the irreverent Los Angeles-based punk band Slut Island and has taken her humor to the dark world of indie pop. With a focus on jaw dropping visuals and hilarious storylines, Number One Popstar is here to serve the kind of quirky pop that doesn’t take itself too seriously, but you will seriously love it.
