Come to Hollie Stephenson’s album launch party in London – 10th March 2016
Hollie Stephenson was 12 years old when she performed her first song in front of an audience at the local pub. At 16 she recorded her first full album and tonight marks the release of that album, recorded with legendary producer Dave Stewart.
‘She took the stage like she was home, and proceeded to enthrall the crowd with her singularly soulful songs, commanding the big band like a seasoned soul diva. It was amazing to see, and to hear, and to register that this is a 16-year old girl we are experiencing, yet as vital and inspirational as the best of the best. That sometimes there are real virtuosos – deep wells of talent born not out of experience but some other place – and that this star was already born, and on her journey. There was no question that this was a historic moment – not unlike the one in which Billie Holiday first performed, and the first recognition dawned of a new voice that soulful.’ American Songwriter
