“You don't ‘understand’ music, you feel it” - self-taught drummer, guitarist and pianist Lots Holloway grew up inspired by the artists who frequented the family home record player. The raw impact of Carole King, the simple but captivating melodies of Fleetwood Mac and the curiosity of Bowie, just like these artists, it was clear from a young age Lots also had a gift for story-telling.
Raised in a small seaside town in Cornwall, Lots developed a unique flair as an entertainer. Always the centre of attention at family gatherings, putting on performances and creating different characters, Lots truly mastered the art of connecting with an audience. This has created an undeniable intimacy to Holloway’s music, songs which are raw yet comforting and personal yet universally felt. After moving to London in 2011 to pursue music, Lots was playing full time in pubs and bars honing this natural enchanting ability.
With a distinctive voice, Holloway writes warm, soulful vintage-pop. Honest and heartfelt stories about love, heartbreak, dreams & reality, with lyrics you can see and melodies you can feel. Fast forward and the journey so far has led to, co-writing songs with KT Tunstall, performing live for BBC Introducing and recording with veteran producer Mike Hedges. 2020 is the year Lots will really start to emerge.
