JOLIE HOLLAND TO PERFORM WEEKLY IN BROOKLYN IN APRIL

Folky Siren With a "Voice as Pure and Direct as a Hit of Moonshine" (Rolling Stone) to Perform at Union Pool In Preparation of Fall Release

Jolie Holland, Anti's recording artist known for her authentic yet completely original take on traditional American music, is set to perform for the first time in over a year in a three week residency at Union Pool, in her adopted hometown of Brooklyn NY.

Shows on April 16th, 23rd and 30th will contain both material from earlier lauded albums Catalpa, Escondida and Springtime Can Kill You, as well as material from her yet-untitled release, due out later this year. On the 30th, Holland will be accompanied by guitarist Marc Ribot, acclaimed for his work with the likes of Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, T-Bone Burnett and John Zorn.

Holland is an old soul who carries her countless treks across the U.S and her stints in Texas and California in her rare approach to singing, stellar songwriting and elusory accent. She has made several critically acclaimed records, filled with folky Americana and sultry jazz, but it is Holland's distinctive voice that makes each of her releases like no other.

Earlier praise for Jolie Holland:

"Springtime Can Kill You holds all of its stories, emotions and contradictions, like a multi-colored, roughly stitched quilt, made from well-worn blankets, shirts, and pants. It offers comfort, strength, and warmth, collecting all the stories that came and went, leaving something of themselves behind." -All Music Guide

"Her music embodies a dyed-in-the-wool timelessness that can't be counterfeited." - Rolling Stone

"Holland's works may harken back to the Jazz age, but the immediacy of her voice and the originality of her songwriting mark her as entirely current. Whether playing guitar, piano or uke, Holland had a knack for crafting an intimate sound." - NY Daily News

"Like a child of Sara Carter and Blind Willie Johnson, Holland writes and sings like an old soul, with wisdom beyond her years." - SF Chronicle

"Literate, spooky and utterly compelling, Escondida is not only an astonishing album, but the announcement, visionary talent." - Paste
