Holly Jazz Lowe brings her psychadelic, melodic soul pop to Bumper in Liverpool on Saturday 24th January, in the form of Like A Thief.
This lady is certainly no stranger to the music biz, she was signed to Mercury Records when she was just 17 years old. They were supposed to release her debut album, but at the last minute someone pulled the plug and it never happened. Now, six years later, she is ready to unleash her swirling, mellifluous brand of pop on to the world under her own terms.
Holly has an eccentric take on the usual singer-songwriter themes like; growing up in a small town and love and loss and manages to twist them into beautiful swirling tales that just sweep you in. She is, essentially, a piano playing solo artist but she has been known to turn her hand to a plethora of other instruments including flutes, harmonicas and snare drums.
In her own words: “I think I play pop music essentially. I mean, I like melodies and stuff and I like things you can get hold of. But I like words and I like stories and I like ideas and feelings and atmospheres and so somehow I think I like to create these whole scenes within the music but still keep it popsy.
“I like having fun with songs and on stage and in studios. I think that that's really important that the fun and enjoyment comes across. I think that's possible even with serious moments. But that enjoyment becomes something more heartfelt and intense.”
The single “Wasn't I Always The One” is released on Monday 2nd February 2009.
