Acclaimed UK session singer HOLLY PETRIE has just launched her debut solo recording… a five track EP called ‘Willow Tree’.
Holly is a graduate of the Academy of Contemporary Music and since leaving with honours in 2009 she’s worked with people like Rod Temperton, Trevor Horn, Ellie Goulding , Jocelyn Brown, Omar, Beverly Knight, Jess Glynne, Kenny Thomas, Alison Moyet, and even Katherine Jenkins and Andrea Boccelli!
Musically her heroines are Jill Scott and Erykah Badu, and ‘Willow Tree’ shows the influences of that mighty duo. The music menu on the five tracker is an intoxicating mix of laid-back soul and lazy jazz…perfect for the beckoning summer. The mini album’s title track is the standout cut.

Amongst the other cuts to enjoy there’s the summer sound of ‘You’ and the set piece ‘Unsteady Stones’ with a very personal lyric
