Musician: Lots Holloway
Multi-instrumentalist Lots Holloway is a talented artist who produces, writes and creates all her own music. Since being signed to indie label Why I? Records in 2016, Lots has gone on to release a stream of infectious and original indie-pop tunes. From this, Lots has picked up ever more support, not just from fans and peers, but also from respected press outlets, influential radio stations and underground indie magazines.
Holloway’s talent for song writing really shines through; in clever lyrics, strong melodies and memorable songs that manage to stay with you long after you first hear them. Based around live instruments (drums, guitar and bass), Lots music spreads clever layers of sounds from the freaky and psychedelic end of the spectrum all the way to the warmer softer tones – but Holloway’s music is always bursting with inventive synths and weird sounds.
All this adds up to something truly fresh and original, and a live show from Lots Holloway is just as compelling. Lots’ on stage presence is second to none. Holloway is enchanting and captivating, and fronting a full live band she only becomes more powerful.
