Hollie Haines, an alt-folk singer-songwriter based in London plays music of powerful and honest lyrics, teamed with delicately crafted melodies. Starting off in Cambridge she played the UK's largest one-day festival, Strawberry Fair, and since has been involved with The Coffee House Sessions, Oxjam and Sofar Sounds.
2018 is promising to be an exciting year for Hollie. After deciding to to finish her time in Leeds where she had been studying music for three years, she moved to London. Haines marked the transition with the single 'Keep Moving On', a nod towards her country influences. She is currently in the midst of her biggest project to date; releasing a 7 track concept album over the next 7 months. The first single of the album 'Except For You' is out now.
When performing live, Hollie pairs her deeply emotive, honest lyrics with quips and anecdotes about the people and stories that have inspired her music, to give an enrapturing performance.
