Fall Concert Series 2019
8 pm | Studio 64 | 64 Deer Park Avenue
Holly and her band will be celebrating the release of her debut album. Entitled “Wild Heart”, it is a full band production – complete with horns and organic sounding keyboards – that showcases Holly’s highly evolved song writing skills and incredibly soulful but smooth vocal abilities. The album has reached #2 on the Roots Music Report Soul Blues radio charts and has been receiving rave reviews from Elmore Magazine, The Vancouver Sun and the Toronto Blues Society to name a few. “Wild Heart has groove and soul by the bucket load, as refreshing as jumping in the Kootenay River on a hot summer day.” – Rock Doctor –
While remaining firmly grounded in the Soul and R&B feel of the earlier masters, this album transports the listener into the modern era with infectious dance grooves, layered horn lines, funky keyboards and positive, uplifting lyrics – think: Susan Tedeschi and Jamiroquai meet The Family Stone. “I’m so excited about these songs” says Hyatt. “They are soulful, funky and fun, with themes of positivity, love and global empowerment throughout. I listen to the album and feel instantly happy. These are the songs I was born to sing”. The Memphis soul tinged, “River Flows”, which appears on the new album and was released earlier as a single, won the 2019 Kootenay Music Award for best Rhythm and Blues Song.
Holly will be joined by Nelson based musicians, Clinton Swanson, Jon Burden, Jack Taforo and Steve Wilson. Their live show features original songs off of Holly’s albums and a mix of Soul, Blues and R&B covers, “Fun, danceable, funky blues that leaves you feeling uplifted and inspired!”
