Holly Macve

A heavenly voice couched in spellbinding western noir ballads, with a devastating emotional delivery, Holly Macve explores a dreamlike, pictorial world within her songwriting; English Rose meets Mulholland Drive Lynchian glamour. With vocal notes of Chris Isaak and Patsy Cline and a unique skill of writing timeless melodies, Macve evokes a warmth and transcendence comparable to a black and white film from the 1950’s.

Having released two critically acclaimed records, she is currently recording and producing her new album, which she describes as her most honest storytelling to date, exploring themes such as abuse, existential fear, the rise, and demise of romantic relationships, and life through the eyes of a melancholic, yet hopeful, self-confessed dreamer.
