After a big 2016 including supports for Willie Watson (ex Old Crow Medicine Show), Joshua Hedley (fiddle player for Jonny Fritz, Justin Townes Earle and a host of others), Joe Pug (USA), and appearing as guest singer at shows with Robert Ellis and The Perfect Strangers during their Australian tour, performing at Out On The Weekend, and releasing her accomplished live, old-time and country album The Unceremonious Junking of Me, Hollick headed into the studio in December to start work on a new EP. Due for release in March/April of 2017, the new EP was recorded at Union Street Studio, Brunswick West, and produced by Roger Bergodaz (Lost Ragas, and owner of Union Street Studio) and Shane Reilly (Lost Ragas, Tex Perkins, and accomplished arranger and multi instrumentalist, having worked as a session musician with many of Australia's revered acts, and with the brilliant Madeleine Peroux). The EP features instrumentation by Bergodaz, Reilly, Kat Mear (Cash Savage and The Last Drinks) and Hollick on five of her most recent songs, including Long Gone Daddy'o Yodel, Way Over Yonder With You, Silver Water, Tough As A Sundried Dead Man's Skin and Turtle Dove.
Gearing up for an even bigger year, shows kick off in February, seeing Hollick appear at White Night Festival, Nannup Music Festival (W.A), along with a side show in Fremantle, supports for Scandinavian folk duo, My Bubba, at shows in Sydney and Melbourne, performances at Boogie Festival, Gumball Festival and Broadbeach Country Music festival, with more to announce soon.
Keep your peepers on her social media sites for announcements of more dates, and any news of overseas touring or extended tours across Australia. Good times folks.
