The Gentry is hosting a special evening of live music with Holly Rees, all the way from the United Kingdom, on Friday, June 21st @ 7 pm, as part of her Canadian Tour
Holly is an emerging singer-songwriter who grew up in the moors of the Durham Dales. Her debut EP ‘Ilex’, released in 2017, received support from BBC 6 Music and a feature on Tom Robinson’s BBC Introducing Mixtape. 2018 saw this success continue with festival slots at Hit The North and Evolution Emerging, as well as supporting the likes of CoCo and the Butterfields, Joseph J Jones, X Factor’s Sam Lavery, and Hannah Trigwell. Her sophomore EP ‘Slow Down’ was released in August 2018, reaching #6 in the iTunes charts alongside support from BBC Introducing and even radio play further afield in the USA, and was followed by a UK tour with Matt Dunbar. She recently played her biggest headline show yet at Think Tank? Underground Newcastle, with a full band to celebrate the release of her new single ‘Stick Around’ (released December 1st).
“a delicate voice that will rip through your ears and leave a lasting impression” – Songwriting Magazine
“Her stage personality, songs, and voice reminded me of some legendary singer/songwriters from yesteryear” – Spotlight Music UK
“unapologetically down to earth lyricism” – RIDE MUSIC
“an earnest brand of songwriting that will take Holly farther than she thinks.” – The Music Mermaid
“Charmingly goofy and engaging, she has that knack of captivating an audience with her storytelling and effortless patter between songs.” – NARC. Magazine “I was listening to a girl from the North East the other day, Holly Rees, and her track ‘Toast’ and it floored me. It was so brave and created by someone who was really, truly, being themselves. Don’t believe anyone who tells you there is no future in music. There is. All you have to be is good.” – Tom Robinson in interview.
