Hollan, a 23 year old Indie-Folk musician from Pennsylvania, writes on her own terms.
Hollan, has spent the last decade trapping concentrated feeling within the borders of sound and word, mostly laboring these songs into life inside her bedroom. After picking up the guitar at age 12 Hollan knew she wanted to pursue music, but it wasn't until just last year that she decided to chase her calling for all it's worth.
What sets her music apart from most, is not only her strikingly smooth voice and memorable melodies, but her undeniable ability to cut straight to the heart of the listener through her songwriting.
In addition to her experiences living in Northern California, Germany and traveling Europe, her influences come from life at home in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, as well as folk music that ranges anywhere from that of Feist to John Denver. She has played on both coasts of the U.S. and in Germany at weddings, live music venues, festivals, house shows and city streets alike. She has opened for artists such as Tiny Desk features, Lowland Hum, Florist and Buck Meek (of Big Thief) and continues to pour her soul out to strangers through her music as often as she gets the chance.
Hollan's debut studio EP, "Ready as the Day," was released on streaming services worldwide on October 2nd, 2019.
