Today we are joined by the lovely and talented Holly Tucker. She rose to fame as the sweet and authentic singer on Season 4 of ‘The Voice’.
Talking to someone as down to earth and real as Holly is a proper treat. She talked me through her whole music career and the hardships and fortunes she’s had along the way.
She also tells me why she’s chosen not to make the move to Christian music, even though she holds her faith so close to her heart.
With her new album ‘You’re Gonna Know My Name’ being released, she’s been kept busy writing, recording and promoting her new music, but the virus has affected her life too.
She tells me about her new track ‘Rhythm of You’, a groovy but laid back song, and what the influence behind the song, and her new album, was…
