LOS ANGELES, CA-
“… The night of music started with the soulful melodies of Hollis. Hollis is a member of the electronic R&B group The Flavr Blue, but her solo work is unquestionably more downtempo and emotional than the club thumpers that she’s recorded with her group. In an interview with the Seattle Times, Hollis joked that she called her music “sad girl jams”, but I was particularly drawn into her performance because of the emotional vulnerability that she lay bare.
Hollis was accompanied by Chucky Kim on electric guitar, and together they performed cuts from her 2020, debut solo album “half-life”. Chucky was a co-writer, producer, engineer, and instrumentalist on Hollis’ album, and it was clear that the two had a comfortable camaraderie on stage.
Hollis’ delicate voice soothed the room and by the end of her performance I was pining for more of her soft soprano voice and her “sad girl jams”… so much so that I decided to purchase an LP from her as soon as she finished her set…”
