We couldn’t recommend Hollie highly enough. She is an incredible musician and a lovely person! Everyone at the wedding commented on her musical ability and she really went out of her way to play everything we liked, including pieces that weren’t on her original track list. Thank you Hollie for helping to make our day extra special! Hannah & James Dean x

I invited Hollie to perform on HMS VICTORY, Royal Historic Dockyards, Portsmouth for a Regimental dinner night .Hollie created an atmosphere that complimented the setting perfectly.
