Jolie Holland announces North American tour

Music News | Aug 13th, 2009

Singer songwriter Jolie Holland is that rare performer who conveys everything in her voice. It is a stunning instrument that seems directly connected to her heart and soul. On her latest album “The Living and the Dead,” Holland creates a smoky evocative work of hallucinatory Americana.

In live performance Holland is absolutely transcendent. Popmatters said of a recent concert: “She’s a singer who’s absolutely worth seeing in a live context because she always takes chances, trying out weird phrasings, slurring words together and falling slightly out of rhythm, only to bring things back together somehow…. plenty of spine-tingling moments.” Holland now prepares to embark on an extensive North America tour joined on the Southern stops by musician, actor Will Oldham (AKA Bonnie Prince Billy) who will sing backup. Seminal folk/blues rambler Michael Hurley will be opening West Coast dates with Kentucky musician and master storyteller Matt Bauer featured on the rest. Holland will be joining both Hurley and Bauer for their sets, then performing alongside supremely talented NYC guitarist Grey Gersten.
