Jolie Holland Takes A Winter Ride Across U.S.

For those of you who don't know Jolie Holland, you should take the time to find out, listen and then plan on seeing her live when she visits a city near you on her upcoming winter tour. Maybe you remember the Be Good Tanyas? She was a founding member but now, for good reason, she's flying solo. Holland will be promoting her upcoming release Escondida across the U.S. this month and next, which will be a breath of fresh air for fans of great singer-songwriters. Live, her voice is soft and sweet, but her performance is powerful and sublime. You don't even have to take our word for it, NPR raves, “Jolie Holland has a voice reminiscent of some of the great old blues vocalists, but the fresh approach of a 21st century singer and songwriter…and unschooled style with soul and heartache.”

Escondida is out on January 21 from Anti-
