She was recently nominated for ‘Breakthrough Artist,’ ‘Engineer’ and ‘Best Pop’ at the ARIA Awards in Australia. Her debut album, Sugar Mountain, was released in the Summer of 2018 and was self-written, composed and co-produced alongside Xavier Dunn and John Castle, and mixed by Spike Stent (Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Bjork). When Holly was a teenager her younger sister passed away unexpectedly from a tragic accident.
