Hollings realized her voice at the age of 5, chasing the setting sun in her backyard forest in south Georgia. She was trained in choirs and a magnet arts high school in Atlanta, which led to performing with Josh Groban. Her 1st band Beat the Grid was formed with cellist & producer Daniel Frankhuizen at Ithaca College in upstate NY. A funky dance-rock blend of afrobeat and spacey jazz, the group released their first self-titled album in 2013, which was promoted by AAM, Inc. They performed around NYC from 2012-2015.
In the last 5 years, Hollings has regularly performed with rock, electronic, and reggae projects (feat. members of John Brown's Body, Dopapod, Jimkata, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad) lent vocals & writing to electronic (DJ Royy Restrepo) and hip-hop recordings with Ethereal (ATL), Made Groceries (Nola), and Glass Meadow (LA). Her vocals are featured on soundscape artist Nathan Moody's recent album A Shadow No Light Could Make.
Hollings paints an eclectic rock dream with haunting layered vocals, R & B rhythms, shimmery synths, and storytelling instrumentals. Her 1st EP Necromancing is a meditation on life and death and commenting on a changing world. The cinematic sound was crafted & co-produced by Dana Billings and features players from Big Mean Sound Machine and the Hudson River Valley. It’s a haunting siren’s call to the unseen forces -- our lockets of existence held by ancestors, nature’s rhythms, and glimpses of the self through layers of conflicted perceptions. Hollings is currently working on commissions and planning unique events in upstate NY with her company Siren Styling.
