Freya Josephine Hollick is an Old-Timey, Country, Folk singer/songwriter from the Victorian Goldfields. Hollick has always had her roots in folk music, coming to earlier 20th Century folk, blues and country music through a hunger for knowledge of how and from where modern music evolved. Freya has followed a path back to a time that holds true to her voice, her songwriting and her story. Hollick's voice has been described as haunting, as both powerful and fragile, it is truly a voice unlike any other, and one that is of another time.
Her parents would listen to music almost constantly as she and her siblings grew up. They listened to everything from Emmylou Harris, to Etta James, Sonic Youth, Ed Keupper, Bill Frisell, Sun Ra, Beastie Boys, Brian Eno, Massive Attack, Townes Van Zandt, Yo La Tengo, Steve Young, John Lee Hooker, Gene Clark and many more. As a result of so much exposure to wide variety of great music, Freya found her way through noise bands, experimental improvisational music, folk and of course country music across the past twelve years performing throughout Victoria.
If you like country music including acts like The Carter Family, Dolly Parton, Gillian Welch, Patsy Cline and old-time Appalachian music, then Freya Josephine Hollick's music is for you. Her voice and songs are some of the most authentic country getting around, and will certainly take you back through time to the front porches of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.
