The daughter to a composer and a native of California, singer/songwriter Holly Conlan eschewed the austerity of an education in classical composition in order to write songs that haunt, amuse and linger. Her lack of pretension, surfeit of graceful confidence at a piano, and a lyricism which belies her age, make her recent EP, 'Bird', easy to admire and difficult to forget. When not performing with her own band at L.A. venues such as Tangier, The Roxy and the venerable Hotel Cafe, Holly can be heard singing back up with Hollywood stalwarts Buddy and Gary Jules. She also cut her teeth at 2007's CMJ festival. The 'Bird' EP was produced by Al Sgro (Meiko, Buddy, Gary Jules), mixed by Bryan Cook (Inara George) and mastered by Roger Siebel (Death Cab for Cutie's 'Plans').
